The other stars of the 37th annual Auction and Barbecue Fundraising event are the more than 150 items up for auction.  A UNC Basketball signed and donated by head coach Hubert Davis is a popular item expected to bring in a lot of money to help support Hospice programs.  Other auction items include new furniture, pottery, gift certificates, gift baskets, outdoor adventures, signed sports memorabilia, homemade specialty desserts, and more.

"Our organization serves about 2,000 patients across eight counties each year.  We touch the lives of about 7,000 more through programs like grief counseling, Kids Path, and a host of other essential caregiving and patient programming that we have truly committed to providing to the community.  Our mission is straightforward, We connect individuals with the care they need on the terms they choose, and that's what we do every day," said Trent Cockerham, the Chief Executive Officer of Hospice of the Piedmont.

"This fundraiser helps support our programs.  Without it, we wouldn't be able to provide our grief counseling center or Kids Path program.  Without public support, those programs would be impossible," said Cockerham.
