Hospice of Cullman County, Inc., the fundraising arm of Cullman Regional Hospice announced the 2020 MEGA CASH Draw Down, its largest annual fundraiser benefiting indigent patients, has been cancelled for this year.

The decision was made by the Hospice of Cullman County, Inc. Board of Directors due to a variety of factors including the ability to effectively social distance attendees during this year’s event as well as financial hardships of local community members and businesses.

“Many local businesses support this event each year through generous donations of door prizes and by purchasing tickets,” Randy Weathersby, Hospice Board Member Event Chair said. “We realize that many of these same supporters have experienced hardships throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and we want those supporters to have time to recover.”

The Cullman Regional Hospice and Hospice of Cullman County Board thank the generosity and dedicated support of the event and mission of Hospice over the years.

“We are confident a bright future lies ahead for Cullman Regional Hospice and our entire community,” Weathersby said. “We anxiously await the return of our traditional MEGA CASH Drawdown event in 2021 with all of our wonderful supporters and friends.”
