Silverado Hospice Partners with the Anaheim Ducks
Comfort care initiative to assemble and deliver flower bouquets receives added support from Ducks employees
Irvine, CA – August 7, 2013 – In a first-time partnership opportunity, Silverado Hospice worked with the Anaheim Ducks on a special Petal for Patients event hosted at the Honda Center on August 6, 2013. Silverado’s Petals for Patients is an ongoing initiative coordinated by Silverado Hospice volunteers who arrange donated flowers into beautiful bouquets and deliver them to hospice patients in the local community. For those suffering from a terminal illness, small comforts including the brightening look and soothing aroma of fresh flowers, can make a big difference and uplift spirits.
Silverado partnered with the Anaheim Ducks for this special event which had Ducks and Honda Center employees assisting volunteers in assembling a large number of bouquets for delivery. In total, approximately 50 arrangements were created and delivered to well-deserving hospice patients in Orange County, including several at Silverado’s Tustin Hacienda memory care community. Supporters who graciously donated the needed supplies included Trader Joe’s (Irvine, Rancho Santa Margarita and Laguna Hills stores), Sprouts (Mission Viejo store), O’Conner Mortuary and The Bloom of Time, who’s owner Adrienne Moore also donated her time to give the group an informative flower arranging demonstration.
Loren Shook, Silverado’s President, CEO and Chairman, was on hand for the event as well and shared his positive sentiment with the group; “Silverado is pleased to partner with the Anaheim Ducks organization to expand the innovative Petals for Patients program that brings unexpected delight and joy to Silverado patients on hospice and their families across Orange County.”
The entire team at Silverado thanks the Anaheim Ducks and the Honda Center for their support of this initiative and hopes to continue the partnership with additional projects in the near future.
