POTSDAM -- Hospice and Palliative Care of St. Lawrence Valley netted $10,400 from the recent second annual Dueling Pianos Show at Cheel Campus Center at Clarkson University.

“Thanks to the generosity and support of numerous businesses, community members, volunteers and staff the Second Annual Dueling Piano Show helped raise more than $10,400 to support the important services and programs offered by Hospice,” said Ruth Fishbeck, executive director of Hospice and Palliative Care of St. Lawrence Valley

“I would like to extend our sincerest thank you to the many businesses and individuals who helped make our Second Annual Dueling Pianos Show a huge success,” she said. “On Friday, June 1, we were thrilled to bring this original entertainment experience back to our community.”

A dueling pianos show is audience-interactive and the audience is involved, participating in requests and comedy throughout the entire event.

The evening was filled with music, laughs and pure enjoyment, Fishbeck said.

The audience of more than 400 was a mix of individuals representing our North Country community including local businesses owners, young professionals and long-time Hospice supporters.

“It was truly remarkable to see such a diverse group of people come together to support Hospice,” she said.

Each day Hospice cares for an average of 75 patients and their families in their time of need.
