Jenni Johnston: ‘Jail & Bail’ a success

On behalf of Hospice of the Foothills, we would like to give special thanks to Tom Fitzsimmons and KNCO for another successful Jail & Bail fundraiser!

Over the past 15 years, this event has raised more than $250,000 for Hospice of the Foothills, as well as much-needed funding for our wonderful nonprofit friends, FREED and CoRR/Granite Wellness Centers.

Thank you also to The Union for promoting this event every year.

We’d also like to acknowledge our jailbirds; Jenni Johnston, Tim and Becky Robinson, Rick Kalb, Liz Alvarado, Dr. Denis Drew, Frank and Vida Santos, Julie Chiarelli, Viv Tipton, Larry Meek, Rev. Karyn Packard, and our dear Barbara Belmer, who “crushed it” by raising nearly $5,000 in bail. You are all such a blessing!

For those of you who have supported the patients and families served by Hospice of the Foothills in donating to one of these “bailees,” thank you for playing! This is truly an amazing community.

Jenni Johnston is a member of the board of directors and Kristin Donahue, fund development and marketing director, for Hospice of the Foothills,
