About $7,600 was raised on Sunday, Oct. 19, at the annual Hosparus Tea, and the money will be used to help people in Taylor and surrounding counties. The tea is the largest fundraiser for Hosparus, and the organization's signature event.
Locally, the Hosparus Green River Community Board, which Chad Shively chairs, oversees fundraisers for the organization.
The Hosparus Green River area encompasses Taylor, Washington, Marion, Green and Adair counties. Since Taylor is the largest of the counties, the area's office was set up here.
