Luncheon honors founders Charles D. Beard and his wife, Mary Sue Beard, for their vision.
Major Charles D. Beard, Jr. and his wife, Mary Sue Beard, founded Alacare Home Health & Hospice 48 years ago with hopes of bringing quality home health care to all Alabama residents. Today, Alacare Home Health & Hospice is the state’s oldest and largest family-owned home health agency. Each May, Alacare honors the Beards and their vision on Founder’s Day.
On May 3, Alacare Home Health & Hospice will celebrate Founder’s Day with a luncheon at Vulcan Park and Museum (1701 Valley View Drive, Birmingham, AL 35209) from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Proceeds from the Alacare Founder’s Day Luncheon will benefit the Hospice & Home Health Fund of Alabama (HHHFA). In 1990, the Beard family formed the HHHFA, which aids patients who would not be able to receive home health or hospice services in their homes because they are experiencing financial difficulties.
“In 2017, the HHHFA raised more than $260,000 in donations of which $41,000 was a result of Founder’s Day,” said Alacare Home Health & Hospice CEO Susan B. Brouillette. “This annual celebration is important to many – the Alacare employees, my family and the families we are able to help.”
Tickets for the Alacare Founder’s Day Luncheon are $30 each for adults and $15 each for children ages 4-12. Tickets include a BBQ lunch and door prizes and can be purchased at www.alacare.com/founders-day-2018 or call Amy Taylor at 205-981-8585.
Even if you are unable to attend this year’s Founder’s Day celebration, you can still make a difference by making a donation to the Hospice & Home Health Fund of Alabama.
