Lower Cape Fear Hospice (LCFH) is raising money for its youth bereavement programs in Columbus and Bladen Counties with the Southern Shindig: Healing Young Hearts on Saturday, June 10, 7:00pm-10:00pm at the Columbus County Fairgrounds. The party features music by Gary Lowder & Smokin’ Hot and food from award-winning barbeque chef Matthew Register from Southern Smoke BBQ. This fundraiser supports LCFH’s Sunrise Kids programs. Listen to Marty Hernandez and Laurie Taylor talk about the event above; see transcript below.


More than 90 percent of people think it is important to talk about end-of-life care.  Fewer than 30 percent actually do it.  That’s according to the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, a Massachusetts-based independent nonprofit.

Development Manager Lindsey Champion and volunteer Gala Chair Kelly Thomas joined us to talk about the work Lower Cape Fear Hospice (LCFH) is doing and the big fundraiser the organization throws every year- Last Chance for White Pants.
