Malachi House Holds Fundraiser During the Derby

A Kentucky Derby Watch Party is planned Saturday at Around the Corner in Lakewood to benefit Malachi House, a place where terminally ill people can spend their remaining days on Earth with dignity. Julie Johnson, Development Director and Kaitlin McCready, Associate Board co-chair discuss the mission of Malachi House and how it is accomplished.

Malachi House was born out of a sense of Christian ministry to serve people who need end-of-life care, but can't pay for traditional hospice.  Malachi House is now in its 26th year of serving indigent people at the end of their lives.  Surprisingly, the average age of residents is 56.  Julie explains why their residents are so young. And Kaitlin talks about the fundraiser.
