Henderson- On December 16, 2023 Vickie and Jake Sizemore, owners of Belly Bustin Grill food trailer, brought together family, friends, and members of the community for an unforgettable night of giving at their annual event, Holiday for Hospice. With their warm hospitality and commitment to Compass’s mission, the Sizemore's set the stage for a memorable event.

Holiday for Hospice is an event dedicated to raising funds and awareness for Compass Hospice, a leading provider of hospice care, grief support services, and supportive care throughout Caroline, Kent, and Queen Anne’s counties. This year's event was a tremendous success, raising an impressive $20,000! Throughout the evening guests had a variety of opportunities to support the cause including a live auction, silent auction, and a 50/50 raffle.

This event was inspired by Jake and Vickie’s own experience with hospice. In 2017 after Jake’s mother passed away under the hospice services of the Gilchrist Center in Howard County. Touched by the amazing dedication of the hospice nurse, The Sizemore's wanted to find a way to give back to the organization that served their family. Every year they would host a Christmas party and decided to put out donation jars for hospice. Over the years the event grew and grew along with the generosity of their family, friends, and local businesses.

The highlight of the evening was the live auction, led by Randy Ridgley, of Ridgley Auction Services. This featured an array of unique items, including a Blackstone grill donated by Gray's Gas, a huge fire pit filled with tons of goodies, donated by the cafeteria ladies at Greensboro Elementary School, an Rtic cooler that included a meat pack from Sudlersville Meat Locker, and an amazing fishing charter, donated by Danny Harris. In addition to these wonderful items, there were many, many, baskets filled with an array of wonderful items to bid on as well.

"We are incredibly grateful for the overwhelming support we received from Holiday for Hospice," said Shelly Baird of Compass Hospice. "The generosity of our community allows us to continue providing exceptional care and support to individuals and families facing end-of-life journeys. These funds will make a meaningful difference in the lives of those we serve." The success of Holiday for Hospice would not have been possible without the dedication of the sponsors, donors, volunteers, and attendees. Compass Hospice extends heartfelt thanks to Vickie and Jake Sizemore, as well as everyone who contributed to making this event a resounding success.
