HomeCare Matters Home Health and Hospice held their largest fundraising event of the year Tuesday evening at William Crawford Intermediate School.

The 16th Annual HomeCare Matters Celebrity Waiter Dinner and Auction was a big hit with those in attendance. This year's theme was baseball -"All Your Health Bases Covered!"

HomeCare Matters, executive director, Bertha Maglott, said the money raised supports the Hospice program.

"All money raised from the event is used for direct patient care by helping to pay for medical supplies, equipment and medicine," Maglott said.

The auction featured hundreds of dollars in gift certificates, hand crafted quilts, family get-away travel packets and more. The Ohio Village Muffins Vintage Baseball Team was also on hand to demonstrate the origins of America's favorite pasttime and serve as waiters.

Organizers hoped to surpass last year's fundraising efforts of $13,000.

HomeCare Matters Home Health and Hospice is a nonprofit organization serving Crawford, Richland, Morrow, Marion, Wyandot, Huron, Seneca and Knox counties which proides home care and hospice services to everyone, no matter what their income level.
