LEWISTON – Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice’s (AHCH) Autumn Night Out Fundraiser has already become overwhelmed with silent and live auction items.

All of these individuals and businesses are ensuring that AHCH can continue to provide superior hospice care to everyone that needs it, regardless of their ability to pay.”

Auction items donated to date include getaway packages like a two-night stay at the Kimpton Hotel in Boston, dinner for two and an overnight stay at Mohegan Sun and a family beach house vacation at Poland Spring Resort, and experiences like a hot air balloon ride for two and Red Sox tickets.
