CENTREVILLE — On Friday, Jan. 31, 2020, Compass Regional Hospice will host its annual Gala at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club in Stevensville.

The Compass Regional Hospice Gala is the nonprofit organization’s premier fundraiser and will celebrate the organization’s 35th year providing hospice care and grief support services in Queen Anne’s, Kent and Caroline counties.

This will be the first year hosting at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club, which was chosen for its expansive views of the Chesapeake Bay and award-winning farm-to-table cuisine. The 2020 gala will begin at 5:30 p.m., and feature cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, followed by a seated dinner.

Compass will announce agency updates and reflect on the milestones from the past 35 years. After dinner, the dance band Retrospect will entertain guests with a playlist that ranges from today’s hits to memorable Big Band era tunes.

Gala guests will have the opportunity to support Compass Regional Hospice’s mission by bidding on premier silent and live auction items, which have been donated by local businesses. Items will include experience packages, themed baskets, and many other items celebrating Caroline, Kent and Queen Anne’s counties.

This is a black-tie optional event. Tickets are $225 and must be purchased in advance. To purchase a ticket or for more information about becoming a sponsor, contact Kenda Leager at kleager@compassregionalhospice.org or 443‐262‐4106.
