Providence Grove High School hosted a special “Celebration of Life” on Wednesday, September 28, as a part of their annual Dig Pink volleyball match. Between the jayvee and varsity matches, the school honored family members of faculty and students that were cancer survivors. This year, Hospice of Randolph County was chosen as the recipient of the funds raised from the event. Tony Joyce, Teacher and Volleyball Coach at PGHS recently presented the $2,531.00 donation check to Hospice of Randolph County. David Caughron, Director of Marketing and Development for Hospice of Randolph County shared, “We were honored to be chosen by Providence Grove as the beneficiary. We believe that hospice care brings hope to families and allows them to focus less on a medical condition and more on living. Focusing on life and hope during this special event was very meaningful to all in attendance.” To learn more about hope through hospice care, please visit www.hospiceofrandolph.org or call 336.672.9300.

Photos of Hope Contest Winners Announced!Posted on Oct 3rd, 2016 | Perma Link
Hospice of Randolph County is pleased to announce the winners of the 2016 Piedmont Triad Photos of Hope Contest, which ran throughout the month of August. The contest invited photographers of all ages and abilities to submit up to three photographs of the Piedmont Triad that represented hope to them. We received a wide variety of beautiful photographs including images of landscapes, flowers, birds, polar bears and sunrises. The photographs were evaluated by a committee through a blind voting process.
The first place winner is Patricia Kuhn for her picture of a cardinal resting on the snowy branch of a tree. As a caption for the photograph, Patricia shared, “It is said that if a cardinal comes to your yard, it is a visitor from Heaven. The cardinal makes me hope to see my loved ones again.” The second place winner is John Fogarty for his picture of the delicate relationship between a sunflower and a bumble bee. John shared that this photo inspires him because, “looking like the dawn of a new day, this sunflower brightens the spirit. It reminds me to focus on the beauty of the people in my life and of the world I live in.” Joanie Spivey is the third place winner for her image of a Barred Owl. Joanie shared, “This photo gives me hope for a brighter tomorrow for those in need, and everyone knows that owls give a hoot.” In addition, Laurie Abela, Megan Clapp, Phylicia Clemens, John Fogarty, John Ireland, and Joanie Spivey received honorable mentions for their contest submissions. To view these images, click here to visit our Facebook page. The three winning photos will appear with their captions in the 2017 Hospice of Randolph County calendar, each having a separate month. The honorable mentions will also appear in the calendar, which will be available free of charge at the 31st Annual Auction & BBQ on Saturday, November 5th at Southwestern Randolph High School, located at 1641 Hopewell Friends Road in Asheboro.
“We were honored that many members of our community participated in this contest and shared hopeful images with us as well as meaningful narratives,” shared Jessica Crisp, Marketing Coordinator for Hospice of Randolph County. “Each image was special in its own unique way, which made the judging process challenging.”
Hospice of Randolph County would like to thank everyone that participated in the 2016 Piedmont Triad Photos of Hope Contest. The Photos of Hope Contest is a part of the Stories of Hope project that Hospice of Randolph County started in 2013. The goal of this project is to bring awareness that hospice shares hope with those receiving care and represents a new hope to maximize quality of life.

Hospice of Randolph County’s signature “Auction & Barbecue” event is still going strong. This year’s fundraiser will take place on November 5th at Southwestern Randolph High School. In preparation for the event, Hospice of Randolph County is asking the community for donations for sale in the auction. Examples of items needed for the auction include fine art, gift certificates & products from local businesses, furniture such as dining room sets, bedroom & living room suits, antiques, collectibles, new electronics, floral arrangements & wreaths, jewelry and more. All goods are welcome, but the organization requests that items be in “new” or gently-used condition. These items are needed before the October 14th deadline to be included in this year’s auction. A silent auction will take place during the BBQ dinner from 3:30pm-6:00pm. The live auction will begin at 6:45pm in the gymnasium with WFMY News-2 Weatherman Grant Gilmore serving as celebrity guest auctioneer to kick off the auction. Also assisting as announcer of the live auction this year will be WKXR Radio’s Larry Reid. 2016 marks the 33rd Anniversary for Hospice of Randolph County’s specialized and compassionate care that it has provided to thousands of people across Randolph County.
Donations of desserts are also needed for the BBQ dinner. Those wishing to donate dessert items such as cakes, pies, etc., are asked to contact Lisa Huffman by, by calling (336)672-9300. To help streamline the program, there will be no baked goods sold during the live auction.

People donating items for this booth are asked to pre-register their baked goods with Lisa Huffman.
This year’s attendees will once again enjoy BBQ prepared by the Randolph County Livestock & Poultry Association. Tickets are $10 a plate, which includes barbecue, sides, drink and a dessert.
