     Niagara Hospice unveiled its branded ambulette today after it was wrapped with the organization's logo and colors by Streamline Designs, a vehicle wrap and vinyl graphics installation company in North Tonawanda, NY. The new ambulette was purchased and put into service last month thanks to more than $34,000 raised by the 19th annual Jack Beatty Memorial Hospice Cruise & Clambake held last July.  

   The ambulette, a 2018 Ford XL Wagon that was customized by MobilityWorks in Amherst, NY, ensures that quality transportation for patients will continue for many years, features a wheelchair platform lift and securement system with retractable seatbelts and can also accommodate a stretcher. It will be used to bring patients to and from area hospitals, patients' homes and Niagara Hospice House in Lockport. 

      The 20th annual Cruise & Clambake will be held Friday, July 12 at the Youngstown Yacht Club. Registration is open at http://niagarahospiceregatta.com/. The event features local skippers and crews from various marinas on Lake Ontario, donating their time and boats to take participants on a cruise up the Lower Niagara River. The clambake includes a cookout, basket and silent auctions and live music. All participants will receive a Mighty Niagara Discount Card and a custom Jack Beatty Memorial Hospice Cruise & Clambake shirt to commemorate the 20th anniversary.

   The cruise portion generally sells out due to the limited amount of boats. If you or someone you know owns a boat that can take more than six guests and would like to participate or to sponsor, donate items or volunteer, please call 716-280-0766 or email allison.bolt@niagarahospice.org.
