Hospice Savannah invites you to

“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.” – Victor Hugo

Martin, a loving father, and husband, was dying of a devastating neurological disorder. He could no longer communicate verbally or move a muscle, but his mind was intact. His wife was angry and grieving and having difficulty letting Martin go. Hospice Savannah’s music therapist got to know Martin and his bride of over 40 years, through their music therapy sessions. Knowing that Martin was holding on for something, the music therapist played their song. It was the song that was playing on their first date, the song they danced to at their wedding. After hearing their song, Martin’s wife, through tears, said, “Martin, I love you, I forgive you and I will be okay.”  Later that night Martin died in peace, needing to hear the words that were so difficult for his wife to say.

How Can You Help? Host a Summer Nights Party!

Hospice Savannah’s annual Summer Nights fundraising and friend-raising parties support the vitally important Healing Arts of massage therapy, music therapy, and story keeping.  These programs and services are made possible by caring supporters just like YOU.  Each summer we ask our community friends to consider hosting a party on our behalf – it could be as simple as a picnic in the park, a potluck at your church, a fancy dinner at a restaurant, or a home-cooked meal at your kitchen table.

Imagine a wife watching her husband with Alzheimer’s as he remembers, and actually sings along with, the songs that they danced to when they were dating….. Or imagine a fidgety and agitated pediatric patient with a brain tumor who is helped to relax and fall into a gentle sleep after a healing massage….

What do I need to do to host?

Please let a member of our Foundation staff know of your intention to host a party. You can email or call us at (912) 629-1055.  We will help you to plan a successful event!

How do I get printed invitations?

Attractive invitations will be provided.  You can fill them out yourself, or our Foundation staff can help you with customizing them, addressing the envelopes, and mailing them out, if you prefer.

What if I’m uncomfortable asking my guests for donations?

You don’t have to – donation cards will be inserted inside the party invitations. Donations can be sent in privately in the return envelope provided.  Alternatively, a member of the Foundation staff can attend your party to talk with guests about the important work of Hospice Savannah and make the ask.

What if I have more questions?

Please email or call the Foundation at (912) 629-1055 to speak with a member of the Foundation staff.  We’d be happy to assist you!

I can’t host a party at this time – is there another way for me to help?

We’d love to ask you to consider making a donation to support Full Circle and/or the Healing Arts.  You can make a donation online (please select Summer Nights in the drop down), by mailing a check to P.O. Box 13190, Savannah, GA  31416, or by calling the Foundation at (912) 629-1055.  You can also purchase a ticket to the Board-Sponsored Summer Nights party on Thursday, August 25th – the proceeds from that event will benefit these important programs and services.
