The funds raised in the HoliStay Raffle will go directly towards the addition of Music Therapy for the residents of Valley Hospice and their families and caregivers. 

Music therapy can provide hospice residents and/or their families with space to explore their emotions and prepare for the road ahead. These opportunities for self-reflection can lead to enhancing, rebuilding or healing relationships with family, friends, and loved ones. Music Therapy reduces loneliness, affects one’s ability to relax, and promotes comfort and over-all quality of life.
