TOLEDO, OH, March 21, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- On Thursday, March 28th 2013, members of the Alpha Phi Omega Toledo chapter will be volunteering their time and energy to raise funds for the Hospice of Northwest Ohio. Hospice of Northwest Ohio has been serving families of the Toledo community since 1981 and recently earned the Northwest Ohio Non-Profit Excellence Award. The services they provide our loved ones and families are indispensable to us and our health care system.
The event is being promoted by APO both on and off campus with flyers, email campaigns, press releases, word of mouth, social media and much more. Sukit Hookah will be hosting the event at their Toledo location at 3354 Dorr St. from 8:00 PM to Midnight. Several APO members will be acting as guest baristas to serve those in attendance. The baristas will be donating 100% of the tips they earn as well as all proceeds from raffle tickets and other activities. In addition, Sukit Hookah will be donating 10% of net sales during the event to APO and Hospice of Northwest Ohio.
"Hospice of Northwest Ohio, along with my Aunt Jenny (who works as a team leader for Hospice of Northwest Ohio) made my Dad's last few months alive as comfortable as possible. I will be supporting this fundraiser without a doubt." ---- Jacob D.
"This past November my grandma passed away while staying at [Hospice of Northwest Ohio] and it was nothing but a good experience. All the people and the entire facility were wonderful and I really want to support them as much as I can..." ---- Lacey R.

Sukit Hookah: Sukit Hookah is a contemporary spin on venerable tradition. [Their] philosophy is one of service over product, substance over image, education over promotion, and dialogue over monologue. "Our entire company, from ownership to servers, is deeply vested in the community. Our organizational culture is one of moral, ethical, and community responsibility - that's why we host so many fund raisers and why our staff happily donates all of their earnings on these nights to organizations like Hospice of Northwest Ohio." - says Jonathan Phillips, Owner/Operator of Sukit Hookah.
