Attendees of NHF Gala honored retiring NHPCO President & CEO, J. Donald Schumacher ending his tenure at the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. The National Hospice Foundation Gala was held Friday, April 22nd at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland. The theme this year was “Moments of Life” – a fitting tribute to honor the many special and successful moments retiring NHPCO President & CEO, J. Donald Schumacher has had during his career in hospice care. Over 400 guests attended the event and approximately $330,000 was raised to support the various programs of NHF. The live appeal, which benefited the “Moments of Life: Made Possible by Hospice” public awareness campaign netted $60,000. “There were plenty of laughs, some tears, and a lot of dancing at this year’s event!”
