Ways to Give: Events

As a nonprofit organization, Pathways relies on many fundraisers throughout the year to continue growing its programs and providing services for everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. 

Pour Brothers Community Night

Pathways President, Nate Lamkin, will be a ‘celebrity bartender’ at Pour Brothers Community Tavern on March 20, 2019. From 6-8 p.m., all tips raised will go to benefit Pathways! Come support Pathways and enjoy great food and beverages.

A Vintage Affair

Experience A Vintage Affair where more than 300 attendees will enjoy 200 varities of fine wines, microbrews, and gourmet appetizers. The evening features a silent auction and drawings for 99 bottles of beer and 99 bottles of wine. The evening serves to raise money for Pathways.

We are looking for sponsors, if you are interested, please see the sponsorship packet for more information here and email your interest to marsha.sesskin@pathways-care.org.

Thank you to all who made this event such a success! During this evening of celebration, we were able to honor five honorees. These philanthropic visionaries helped to shape Pathways into what it is today. We also heard from Nate Lamkin, Pathways president, and Ryan & Amy Green, parents of a child who utilized Pathways’ palliative services. Over the course of this evening, we were able to raise over $100,000 for our pediatric hospice and palliative care programs. 

Pathways Fundraiser 2018 Highlight

Thank You Honorees

Thank you to our honorees who made this evening so special! Each of these individuals have helped to shape Pathways into what it is today. 

Mary Dellenbach

Mary has been a Pathways volunteer since 1994, starting in the Hospice Flower Shop that was located in The Square Mall. Shortly thereafter, she became a courier and took forms to and from doctors’ offices. Mary still volunteers at Pathways once a week as a receptionist. Mary served on the Pathways board of directors from 1998-2016. A beloved friend, Mary’s passion and willingness to support Pathways is boundless. She is always concerned about the family members at the Pathways Hospice Care Center, making sure they have fresh homemade cookies while they are there, replenishing the candy bowl in the lobby, and answering and directing every phone call patiently.

Carole Egger

Carole is a former Pathways board member, co-chair of our original capital campaign to build the Pathways for Grief and Loss Center, and the catalyst for our
Memory Garden and Children’s Healing Garden. A passionate supporter, visionary leader and patron of the sculptures adorning Pathways, Carole is truly beloved by Pathways staff!

Christy & Tom French

Christy and Tom have a long personal history with Pathways. In the last three decades eight members of their family have received hospice care and many others have taken part in the Grief & Loss program. In 1994, their 4-year-old daughter, Abby, was referred to hospice care. It was her life and subsequent death that provided the inspiration for the “Abby’s Signature Concert Series” a 15-year series of benefit concerts raising money and awareness. Christy and Tom’s personal experience and connection with Pathways have given them a deep passion for palliative care, end of life care, and the importance of dealing with grief and loss.

Earl Sethre

Earl joined the Pathways board of directors in 1993 and served until 2006. His main motivation was to give back and says it was one of the best boards he has ever served on. He was also involved as co-chair for two capital campaigns – one for the first building, the second for the new Pathways for Grief and Loss Center. Earl says that being involved with hospice has helped him to be a more compassionate and understanding individual when it comes to terminal illness, death and dying. “I still feel connected with Pathways and always will,” he says.
