How Hearts and BBQ got started
The Hearts and BBQ fundraiser can trace its origins back to a family who was touched by the care of those who work at Homecare and Hospice.
Christina Nolte, the Homecare and Hospice Executive Director, explains how the event got started.
Nolte says Rhoda’s husband, Ken Culbertson, and her kids began a fund to directly benefit Homecare and Hospice employees.
