An inpatient hospice facility that will serve our western North Carolina region becomes closer to reality through the generous philanthropic support of patrons attending a charity dining event hosted by Paoletti’s Restaurant.
Owners Kevin and Arthur Paoletti and Meg Littleton Paoletti opened their hearts and restaurant, in support of Hospice House Foundation of WNC. Meg and Arthur, along with an event committee dedicated to the cause, worked tirelessly organizing and promoting a very successful fundraiser. About 60 dining patrons participated in the event held at Paoletti’s Restaurant on Sept. 30, netting roughly $175,000. The evening included a silent auction of attractive items donated by local merchants and hospice friends, with music provided by Ron Schott, a four-course menu with wine pairing especially selected for the evening, and a passionate plea for support.
