West Palm Beach, FL - In appreciation of its volunteers, Hospice of Palm Beach County hosted 'Paris Dreams 2012' at the Kravis Center.  The annual event honored hundreds of volunteers from teens to young 90s who generously and unselfishly devote their service, helping people who are facing end of life.

Each year, more than 600 volunteers donate over 50,000 hours to Hospice of Palm Beach County patients, their families and the overall organization in a variety of ways: patient and family visitors, administrative support, pet therapy visitors, resale shops, special events, as well as in a multitude of professional capacities.

"Our volunteers make it possible for Hospice of Palm Beach County to provide the services we do in our community," said Barbara Ivanko, Chief Operating Officer. "The purpose of this event is to shine a light on their important work and say thank you for their commitment and support. And in the spirit of our Paris Dreams, Merci beaucoup!"

Volunteers were honored for their years of service, ranging from 15 to more than 30 years, with special recognition given to Sarita Armstrong, who has been a volunteer for 33 years. Sarita, who volunteered at Hospice of Palm Beach County shortly after moving to the United States from England, reminisced about the many times she and a group of volunteers sing next to the bedside of a hospice patient, sharing their gift of music and joy.

More than 450 volunteers and guests gathered to celebrate, enjoying the Paris theme and the dozens of tiny, illuminated Eiffel Towers throughout the room with lively music that attracted guests to dance everything from the CanCan to Conga lines. 

The event gave well deserved recognition to Hospice of Palm Beach County volunteers who often say they get much more from their service than they could ever give.
