This award was presented to a true family business for at least three generations of support for Hospice of Morrow County through financial support, volunteering, board participation. The award was accepted by the entire Trainer family.

Serving up the buffet dinner was Special Occasions, LLC of Upper Sandusky.

Auctioneers for the live auction were Craig Miley and Bill Creswell assisted by Rex Strine, Mike McKinney and Paul Kemp.
