A fundraiser that benefited State of the Heart Hospice is one of the most generous on going fundraisers for the local hospice program. At the Celina Mercer County Chamber of Commerce annual NASCAR night that was held this winter, a check for $4,081 was given to the non-profit agency which cares for families and patients in eastern Indiana and western Ohio who are confronting a life limiting illness. Over the years, the Chamber’s NASCAR night has resulted in nearly $60,000 in support for State of the Heart Hospice. State of the Heart has offices in Coldwater, Greenville and Portland.
