Celebrate the extraordinary level of care that Sharp HospiceCare brings to end-of-life patients and their loved ones at the 13th Annual Sharp HospiceCare Benefit Dinner & Regatta.

Hosted by Sharp HospiceCare, the benefit regatta brought together racers, community organizations and local families for an important cause. The event takes place on Friday evening, Aug. 28, with a dinner, followed by all-day festivities on Saturday, Aug. 29, as guests board sponsored yachts and cruise along the race course with a breathtaking view of the regatta and San Diego Bay.

Proceeds from this event benefit Sharp HospiceCare's Homes for Hospice Campaign, an initiative to build residential hospice homes in San Diego County. Learn more or view a virtual tour of Sharp HospiceCare's Hospice Homes.
