Cruisin’ For Hospice Car Show

Next show is June 1 & 2, 2019.  We will be presenting our 20th Anniversary Classic Car Show

Cruisin’ for Hospice is an open car show that features great classic to contemporary cars, and pickups. The event is held in downtown Ellensburg on the 300 block of North Pine Street. Last year 112 vehicles registered for the event, in 2019 we have added 4th avenue  to increase our total available spaces to over 200 vehicles.
The proceeds go to benefit Hospice Friends, a non-profit organization serving the elderly and anyone facing a life-threatening illness in Kittitas County.

Jefferson Awards

Jefferson Award

When hospice care was in its infancy in the US two visionary
women, Peg Rowbotham and Enid Gage made it a reality in Kittitas County. With a common desire to help those facing end of life, they worked to create an organization in Kittitas County to
provide peace, comfort and care during the final days of an
individual’s life.

Today their vision continues. Hospice Friends, whose mission
is to provide these same support services to the elderly and
anyone facing a life-threatening illness in Kittitas County,
served twelve individuals and families in 1983 free of charge.
That number continues to grow, and in 2009, 683 individuals were
served.

The 2010 Washington State Jefferson Awards winners will be featured on KING 5’s Evening Magazine during the week of April 5-9, 2010. One Jefferson Award Winner will be featured each evening.
