As our community faces another surge in COVID-19 cases, the image of a labyrinth comes to mind. While we have not yet reached the end of the pandemic, we are on this path together, which is truly comforting. With input from our COVID Task Force, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Beauty of Life event. We have an obligation to keep people safe, and we appreciate your understanding. On our path—with all its twists and turns—there is still a lot of beauty. A caregiver recently wrote: “Our time with Hospice Austin was meaningful, rich, and comforting, making our loss a sweet and memorable experience. We would not have asked for anything different!” As economic hardship persists, the number of patients without insurance is up by more than 20% this year. At the same time, we are facing a $500,000 shortfall in our budget following the cancellation of Beauty of Life. Please consider a gift in support of our mission. Your contribution would certainly brighten the path as we continue to navigate the pandemic.
We will miss seeing you this fall. Still, we trust our path will bring us together again, and remain hopeful that Beauty of Life will return in 2022.
For now, I offer sincere gratitude for your support, and wish you a season full of beauty.
