We know how fun they are, and we also know how important they are to patients and their families. But, we must cancel the 2020 Barley, BBQ & Beats events until 2021. It’s the right thing to do.
It wasn’t an easy decision, because these events are crucial to the programs they support - but your safety is even more important. All tickets sold thus far will be refunded, and all three events will be held in the exact same locations next year. We hope you will join us in Detroit on April 30, 2021; in Cadillac on May 7, 2021; and in Grand Rapids on May 22, 2021.
Since their inception in 2016, our annual revenue from all three events has grown to over $500,000, which equals 3,000 days of care for patients across the state. We know this decision could impact our ability to provide that. Please consider supporting us financially during this time at
Hospice of Michigan has always prioritized health, safety and quality of life above all, and this decision reflects that. Thank you for understanding.
