Fundraising for a cause: TMC Hospice Complementary Therapies

The 16th annual Desert Toyota of Tucson Rock ‘N Rodeo took place on Saturday, March 16, at JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort and Spa.  More than 550 people dressed down – wearing jeans and cowboy boots – to eat, drink, line dance, gamble and bid on fabulous silent auction items.

Proceeds from the event support emergency funds to cover services to families in need and complementary therapies – things like massage therapy, music therapy, pet therapy and aromatherapy.  These services are often not covered by insurance, but improve the quality of life for those facing long term medical needs.

“They can soothe and distract a patient, which can help take them away from their pain and suffering  – even if it’s only for a few minutes.  We want to do everything we can to make them comfortable, and create a loving environment during their time here,” said Mary Steele, TMC Hospice Director.

The total amount raised at this year’s Rock ‘N Rodeo will be released next week.  A special thank you to those who attended, and those who support TMC Hospice throughout the year.
