​"I love bringing together a group of people and serving them delicious food to benefit Hospice. Every group has been great and they all seem to have a wonderful time. We've been doing this since the beginning of the dinner parties and I think we are on our 6th or 7th year. Amazing!"

~ Lydia Cassatt
& Philip Osgood


"What I like about giving a hospice dinner is cooking for an appreciative group who are having a good time and are also open to the hospice mission."
