January 30, 2019 | Treasure Coast Hospice

The 2019 Rose Ball: A Midsummer Night’s Dream Committee

Join us for a night of dinner, dancing and light-hearted fun in a garden-party setting at the Rose Ball: A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Saturday, February 9, starting at 5 p.m. at Mariner Sands Country Club in Stuart.  This event will support the Little Treasures Pediatric Program of Treasure Coast Hospice.

Since 2014, event chair Charity Parsons has organized a themed fundraiser for the Treasure Coast Hospice Foundation. This year, Parsons and her committee decided to name the annual benefit the Rose Ball.

“Our event has become an annual tradition, so we wanted to name it to ensure the community recognizes this important fundraiser in support of Treasure Coast Hospice’s Pediatric Care program,” said Parsons. We selected the Rose Ball in honor of Kamden Rose Brownie, who earned her angel wings in the care of Little Treasures in 2017, and Rosemarie Barnes, a major sponsor of the event.”

Tickets are $150, which includes an open bar from 5:30 p.m. – 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. – 11:30 p.m. The Rose Ball also features live and silent auctions and exciting raffles. Dress for the evening is cocktail attire; guests also have the option to wear costumes reflecting the theme.

For more information about sponsorship opportunities or to get tickets, please contact Chairperson, Charity Parsons at 586-945-9041 or

A Message from Our CEO

Susan de Cuba

President and Chief Executive Officer

Few creatures inspire as much wonder as the hummingbird. Tiny, yet strong enough to migrate 500 miles across the Gulf of Mexico, this brilliant bird is the ultimate symbol of resilience. So it’s only fitting that we have incorporated a hummingbird into our new look and logo to symbolize our organization’s life-affirming mission.

Under the Treasure Coast Hospice name, we have grown our services beyond our cornerstone hospice program to include palliative care, grief support counseling and specialized pediatric care. To better reflect our expanded scope of community services, we have changed the name of our parent organization to Treasure Health, while our flagship hospice program will continue to be called Treasure Coast Hospice.

Hospice will always be the heart of our mission. The same outstanding care the community has known since 1982 will continue. The experience we’ve gained during the past 35 years translates well to other services that improve quality of life. Our full spectrum of support includes Treasure Coast Hospice, Treasure Health Palliative Care, Treasure Health Pediatric Care and Treasure Health Grief Support.

With all of our services, our goal is to empower patients and families with the knowledge and support they need to make every moment count.  Guiding our efforts is a caring community of health professionals, volunteers and donors. Like me, they believe that in all stages of illness, everyone deserves to experience the best possible quality of life.

With our comprehensive, compassionate approach to palliative care, hospice services and grief support, we are building communities that allow people to drive their own destinies for the highest quality of life in every health circumstance.

We are excited to embrace a fresh brand that helps us promote our life-affirming philosophy and look forward to having you join us as a trusted partner in supporting our community’s healthcare journey.
