Trillium House Bike Night 2020 At The Up North Lodge

There are events we look forward to each year and Bike Night at the Up North Lodge is certainly high on the list.   Sally and the folks out there pulled of this fund raiser again in a covid-safe evening generating a $1,100 donation!

Special thanks to them and to our sponsors, The Window Store and the Barrier Free Store.   See you next year!

Newly Refurbished Beds Donated

Our thanks to the West End Health Foundation for its recent grant to purchase another refurbished new model hospital bed. These beds are a great for Residents and a huge help to our care staff compared to the older metal frame hospital beds. They provide enhanced comfort to Residents and make caring for Resident far safer for our staff. UP Health System Marquette donated two of these beds and the Superior Health Foundation has provided a grant for the purchase of two more. With this latest grant, we’re confident of having these wonderful additions in all Resident rooms by the end of the year!

The main one is we ask that you not visit if it is not absolutely necessary.

Please contact Pat Bray, Exec. Dir., at 236-3683 or info@trillliumhospicehouse.org with any questions. Thank you for your support of our Residents and our community in stopping the spread of this virus.

Embers CU Supports Trillium House

November 4, 2019 – Exciting news as we learned this morning that Embers Credit Union selected Trillium House as part of their participation in the Lake Superior Community Partnership annual fundraising event “Family Feud-Partnership Edition” this Thursday, November 7th.

For those of us who can’t attend, here’s a way to be involved and raise funds for Trillium House. Go to the link below and vote for your Feud Favorite. It’s simple, quick and just $10 per vote. Trillium House will receive 50% of all of the funds Embers gets through these votes. Embers is not only a major donor to the Capital Drive that built Trillium, but also provided us with a great construction loan that we’ll pay off through pledges in about a year. They’re easy to work with and we’re fortunate to have their President & CEO Tom Blake on our board.

We hope you can attend this fun event.  Be sure to vote for Embers as your Feud Favorite.  More information regarding tickets and Feud voting, please go to LSCP website.  See you there.
