Hospice group invites young professionals to tailgate


The Foundation of Community Hospice & Palliative Care has announced the re-establishment of the Community Hospice Young Professionals (CHYPs) auxiliary group and their first kick-off event of the season.

CHYPs is a collective of young professionals age 35 and younger who share a common goal of making a positive difference in the lives of those facing life-limiting and life-ending illnesses. This auxiliary group collaborates to raise funds for programs and provides volunteer support at events organized by The Foundation of Community Hospice & Palliative Care. Their slogan, Esprit de Corps, derived from the French expression “spirit of camaraderie,” embodies the collective dedication and energy of its members, who are committed to furthering the compassionate mission of Community Hospice & Palliative Care.

Chaired by board president Madison Mahaffy, who was once a member of the teen advisory board, CHYPs offers young professionals an opportunity to network with like-minded individuals while cultivating their leadership skills and profoundly impacting the community. Members gain invaluable personal and professional growth experiences by joining this esteemed group while championing a cause that resonates deeply with their philanthropic spirits.

The kick-off event will begin at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 24, at Manifest Distilling. This will be an indoor tailgate before the Jaguars vs. Texans game. Admission is free, but attendees are encouraged to become members of CHYPs for $75 per person.
