“Music is one of the most universal ways to celebrate, so we are thrilled to announce our much-anticipated concert series with our very first concert to benefit the St. Francis Reflections Foundation,” said Shawn Bassham, Chief Philanthropy Officer for St. Francis Reflections Lifestage Care. “Our hospice and palliative care services are integral to our community, and funds from this event will allow us to best support patients and their families in the most meaningful and immediate ways.”

General admission tickets are $25 per person, and proceeds support important community programs, including NorthStar, an age-appropriate grief support service for children and their families; St. Francis’ pediatric palliative care for children with life-limiting illness; and We Honor Veterans, a specialized care program for Veterans that includes resources and personalized recognition.

This will be the first in a series of concerts to raise awareness of St. Francis’ critical community programs and funds to support them. St. Francis Reflections Lifestage Care is Brevard’s longest-serving hospice not-for-profit, independent, interfaith provider of hospice, palliative care, pediatric palliative care, and grief support services. Founded in 1977 and licensed in 1990, the organization continues to grow its reach in Brevard County with new in-patient care centers. In 2021, St. Francis partnered with Courtenay Springs Village to open a new hospice care center in Merritt Island. In early 2022 St. Francis will open a new unit at Melbourne Regional Medical Center.
