Francis House is an organization that cares for those with terminal illnesses, and their work is possible due to dedicated community support from across Central New York. Through donations and support, they’ve continued to help people die with dignity for more than 25 years. 

One again, they’re hosting their annual “No Place like Home” event.

Executive Director, Nancy Light, said that the event raises a quarter of the organization’s budget which is beneficial to their growth.

The fundraiser will feature plenty of food stations, live entertainment and prizes. Prizes range from a $50 to a $200 dollar value.

The event will be held Wednesday, October 10 at 5:30 p.m at the New York State Fairgrounds in the Horticulture Building. For more information visit their website or contact (315) 475-5422 or email
