LAFAYETTE, COLORADO – TRU Community Care, founded in 1976 as the first hospice in Colorado, is celebrating its 40th anniversary with a gala on Sept. 17 at the Denver Marriott Westminster. The theme is Peace, Love & PIZZAZ! and will feature a ‘70s theme and live band Soul School.
“This event brings supporters of TRU together to celebrate the good work our caregivers and volunteers have been providing at a very tender time in our patients’ lives. For the past 40 years, we are blessed to have the community at our side as we offer high-quality care, compassion, and respect through this time-honored work.” said Annette Mainland, Vice President of Philanthropy at TRU.
2016 marks the organization’s 40th anniversary, meaning that the nonprofit has been caring for those who are dying and their families for four decades. In addition to its headquarters in Lafayette, which serves the Boulder and Broomfield counties and surrounding areas, TRU also operates a care center in Greeley. TRU Hospice of Northern Colorado serves patients and their families in Weld and Larimer counties.
TRU Community Care has touched thousands of lives with its specialized end-of-life and bereavement services. Today, offering a continuum of care for those with advanced illness, TRU is committed to helping patients and families prepare for, understand, and make informed choices when coping with the challenges of serious disease.
