2015 Jack Beatty Memorial Hospice Cruise and Clambake - July 10, 2015





The 2015 Jack Beatty Hospice Cruise & Clambake will take place on Friday July 10 and is open to the public. Members of the Youngstown Yacht Club generously donate their boats and their time to take you and your friends up the Niagara River for a leisurely cruise, while you enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and listen to the on-the-water entertainment. After the cruise, you will return to the beautiful Youngstown Yacht Club for a fabulous clambake with all the trimmings.  Why not get your friends together and plan on enjoying this event?  You will support a very worthy cause at the same time.  Boarding passes will be for sale beginning in April of 2015 and can be accessed by selecting the "Purchase Tickets" link on the left side of this page – check out our Photo Album link too!

The proceeds from these events provide revenue for Niagara Hospice to use in their work with individuals and families dealing with end-of-life illnesses. Since 1988, Niagara Hospice has served over 13,000 Niagara County residents and their families. No individual is denied Hospice care regardless of his or her ability to pay. Families who are uninsured or underinsured can take comfort in the fact that Hospice services are available to them.

On behalf of all the patients and families that Hospice serves, We would like to thank you in advance for your participation and support! If your lives have been touched by Hospice, you know how important your support is!
