Special fundraising activities help to support Penn Highlands Community Nurses programs and services. We welcome and appreciate your participation in these special events. They include:

  • The Chili Bowl in Clearfield: Come to taste or bring your best chili to this annual event.
  • The Tree of Doves in DuBois during the Christmas season: Remember or honor someone special with a dove ornament on a Christmas tree displayed at Penn Highlands DuBois.
  • The Butterfly Releases include a celebration of life service, inspirational readings, music and the reading of loved ones' names. It is a beautiful, meaningful event enjoyed by many communities' residents.

Chili Bowl

The Chili Bowl in Clearfield will be held on September 19, 2019 at the Expo II Building at the Clearfield Driving Park/Clearfield Fairgrounds. Come to taste or bring your best chili to this annual event. Categories include restaurants, churches, physicians and emergency responders, and all others. If you can't cook, sponsor a table and its chef. There are theme basket raffles and door prizes. All of this benefits hospice for the Clearfield area patients who may not have funds to cover costs for items outside of their insurance coverage. This year's theme is "Pets and Friends".

Tree of Doves

The Tree of Doves in DuBois during the Christmas season: Remember or honor someone special with a dove ornament on a Christmas tree displayed at Penn Highlands DuBois.

Each dove will bear the name of someone special along with the person who made the donation in his or her honor or memory. The doves are color coded with white for memorial and red in honor of someone. Donors may ask for the American flag to be placed on the dove of a veteran or first responder.

Trees remain on display throughout the holiday season to mid-January. For more information, call 814-375-3300.

When released, some butterflies flutter away immediately, while many others delight the crowd by staying to rest on hands, shoulders and nearby flowers and bushes. The events will also include inspirational readings, beautiful music and the reading of names. It is not necessary to sponsor a butterfly to attend this special event. All are encouraged to gather and join the celebration of remembrance.
