Westborough – A Westborough businessman is part of the group behind a benefit marking the 20th anniversary of the Stanley R. Tippett Hospice Home Friday, Sept. 26, at 6 p.m. at the Needham Golf Club, 49 Green St., Needham.

VNA Care Network & Hospice, a nonprofit visiting nurse association, opened the Stanley R. Tippett Hospice Home in Needham 20 years ago to fill an unmet need in the community – a homelike place for terminally ill patients to receive hospice care when it is no longer possible or optimal to receive care in their own homes.

VNA Care Network & Hospice's Needham Community Cabinet, volunteers dedicated to raising awareness of and support for the agency's nonprofit mission of caring, are organizing the 20th anniversary benefit. Westborough businessman Christopher Bailey, regional office head of Mutual of America, is serving on the cabinet.

The 20th anniversary benefit for the Tippett Home kicks off with cocktails, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and silent auction. Attendees will hear singers from the Longwood Opera perform Broadway tunes, selections from Gilbert & Sullivan, and light opera at 7 p.m.

Tickets for the benefit are $60 per person and may be purchased at www.vnacarenetwork.org or by calling VNA Care Network & Hospice at 888-663-3688, ext. 1361. Updates about the event will be posted to www.facebook.com/VNACareNetwork and www.twitter.com/VNACare.
