Center for Hospice Care and Hospice Foundation are excited to announce the recipients of the inaugural Circle of Caring Award. The event, being held on Wednesday, November 2, will honor Tim Portolese and Dr. Bruce Newswanger.
Tim has served on the boards of Elkhart General Hospital, Child and Parent Services of Elkhart County and the Humane Society of Elkhart County as well as Center for Hospice Care (CHC). A Mishawaka native and long-time resident of Elkhart, Tim’s fundraising success is a reflection of his background in business and marketing. He was also a driving force in the establishment of CHC’s Elkhart campus. As an emergency room physician, Bruce has been a strong advocate of CHC’s mission as well. Their philanthropic support – along with their Dachshund crew of Enzo, Luigi, Mickey and Pete – of the Elkhart County Humane Society is legendary. Tim and Bruce are pillars in Elkhart and together have impacted the lives of thousands in the community. All funds raised at the 2022 Circle of Caring Award Dinner will ensure that CHC is able to continue to provide high-quality hospice and palliative care to patients in Elkhart County.
The event will be held in the Crystal Ballroom at The Lerner Theatre in Elkhart on Wednesday, November 2 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. For information on sponsorships visit FoundationForHospice.org/coc22 or contact Red Fisher at 574.243.3119 or email FisherR@FoundationForHospice.org.
