Community Hospice and Palliative Care hosts 18th annual Halloween Doors & More

Community Hospice and Palliative Care hosted its 18th annual Halloween Doors & More at the Jacksonville Fairgrounds on Saturday, Oct 15.

According to the event’s Facebook page, the annual fundraiser is a “an event bursting with magic, fantasy and so much more for both children and parents.” Activities included trick-or-treating at “14-foot-high fantasy doors,” character meet-n-greets, music and dancing, face painting and makeovers at the “Bootiful Salon” and much more.

Proceeds from this event benefited Community Hospice and Palliative Care’s Community PedsCare program, which “provides assistance to over 235 children a day with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions at no cost to the families.”

The event was presented by THE PLAYERS Championship. Other event sponsors included the Petway Family Foundation, US Assure, DuBow Family Foundation, David and Linda Stein, the Jacksonville Jaguars Foundation, Nancy and Niall Falloon, Wolfson Children’s Hospital, UF Health, the Miller Bower Family, InLight Real Estate Partners, Superior Construction and PRI Productions.

In a Facebook post following the event, Community Hospice and Palliative Care thanked everyone who made the day possible, stating, “We are grateful for every family who attended our 18th annual Halloween Doors and More event, presented by THE PLAYERS! Your support, costumes and enthusiasm helped make our event a success.”
