West Palm Beach, FL. (August 29, 2019) – Community leaders in Palm Beach County got “locked up for good” in support of Trustbridge Hospice Foundation. On Wednesday, August 21, community leaders and executives from various organizations were released from custody after getting bailed out by the community.
Local executives and community leaders that were locked up included: Dari Bowman, Trustbridge Hospice Foundation Board Member, John Carr of Venture Construction Group, Diane Catalano of Daymaker, Mike Pumo of WPEC CBS12, Philip Reagan of J.P. Morgan, Dominique Renaud of Trustbridge, Peter Sachs of Jones Foster, Johnson & Stubbs, P.A., David Schultz of Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath P.A, Josh Sheradsky of BB&T and Beth Walton of Palm Beach United Way.
The jailbirds spent three months calling upon friends to help them secure their $2,500 bail and then gathered at FITTEAM Ballpark of the Palm Beaches to celebrate their release. The event raised over $36,000 to support the important hospice programs Trustbridge provides to the community, which are above and beyond traditional hospice services: grief services for children and adults, camps for children, music therapy, pet therapy and extraordinary comfort.
“I was honored to be a part of the inaugural Hospice Jail & Bail to support Trustbridge Hospice Foundation.” said Beth Walton, CEO of Palm Beach United Way and lead fundraiser. “Hospice plays such an important role as it cares for patients and families in our community and I am happy to support an organization that has such an impact on our community.”
“We are incredibly grateful for the support of the Palm Beach County Community,” said Greg Leach, President of Trustbridge Hospice Foundation. “Their generosity ensures Trustbridge can continue to offer services that are vital to our patients and families.”
Presenting “warden” sponsor was BB&T.
