The hospice house, located in Callaway, opened in November 2009, and provides a peaceful and comfortable environment for individuals with terminal illnesses. Funds raised from the Derby event are specifically used to offer care for patients without insurance, palliative treatment care such as chemotherapy or transfusions, and room and board, which is not covered by insurance. According to Sabre Group Vice President for the Mid-Atlantic Region Glen Ives, who attended the event, “This was a very meaningful and fun event for all of us who attended. It was a great opportunity to meet and catch up with many of the community, business and government leaders. As much fun as the event was, the omnipresent theme of supporting our Hospice House of St. Mary’s was what made it such a special and rewarding time. Sabre’s genuine support of incredibly important and caring institutions, like the Hospice House, that provide such an invaluable service to our community, reflects our uncompromising commitment to our core values, which guide how we live and work, and what makes Sabre team a very special place to be.”
