Now, in its tenth consecutive year, Mercedes Moment is Home Nursing Agency Foundation’s annual signature fundraising event. Funds raised support the Agency’s charitable mission of providing care and support to individuals and families in need, as well as provide funding to enhance programs benefitting entire communities within the Agency’s 13 county service area.
Only 1,000 tickets were sold to win either a new Mercedes SUV or $30,000 cash prize.
“Thank you to everyone who supported us this year including ticket buyers and corporate sponsors,” said Becky Willnecker, CEO Home Nursing Agency Foundation. “This year’s event raised more than $96,000 to help individuals and families in our care who have needs beyond normal circumstance and who may need additional services not covered by insurance. Mercedes Moment is truly a community fundraiser that embraces Home Nursing Agency’s mission since its inception in 1968 as a not-for-profit, community benefit organization helping to lighten the burden and lend a helping hand to our patients and their families in times of greatest need. The Home Nursing Agency Foundation supports all programs and individuals who receive care within the agency’s 13-county service area,” added Willnecker.
In addition to ticket buyers, members of the Foundation are also grateful for the support of the following community partners:
