Get ready for the return of our annual spring fundraiser coming on Friday, April 13. We are excited to announce this year’s theme, Rio Nights, Parade Your Passion for Cedar Valley Hospice. This year we’ll be at a new venue in Downtown Waterloo at The Waterloo Convention Center at Five Sullivan Brothers Plaza.

Make plans to celebrate and samba with family and friends at this casual and colorful event to support the programs and services of Cedar Valley Hospice. Enjoy appetizers, a cash bar, the chance to purchase raffle tickets to win a $1000 cash prize (sponsored by Bergen Heating Plumbing and Cooling), a delicious dinner, special program and entertainment (see details below!) in addition to our popular silent auction items, too.


We’re excited to use mobile bidding for the first time this year for our silent auction. This online bidding method will allow guests, as well as others not in attendance, the opportunity to bid on dozens of awesome silent auction items from local, regional and national donors. Don’t forget to include an email address with your reservation to make sure to receive updates prior to the event including silent auction offerings available! More information will be coming soon...


Experience the energy and enthusiasm of Cedar Valley favorites the Brazilian 2wins (sponsored by Amy Wienands Real Estate). The twins tour nationally and their band will bring a South American touch to the evening with performances during the social hour as well as a full concert to conclude our evening of fun and fundraising. It’s a night you won’t want to miss!
