The Chatham-Kent Hospice Foundation keeps on raising money.
It recently hosted its 5th Annual Benefit Gala with huge success, raising more than $98,000 to support end-of-life hospice care in Chatham-Kent.
The sold-out event, held at the Chatham Armoury, provided guests with an elegant evening of fine dining, the opportunity to bid on auction experiences and hear from a former hospice family about their hospice experience.
“Our sincere thanks to our guests who attended, the businesses and individuals who graciously donated the many auction experiences and the generous sponsors for their support. A special thank you to our guest speaker who generously shared their personal experience. It really helped guests understand the impact hospice care has on our local families. Overall, it was an amazing night that demonstrated our community’s continued compassion and care for one another,” Randi Bokor Caron, Foundation board chair, said in a media release.
Adding to the excitement of the evening was the chance to win a 0.50 ct Round Brilliant Cut Canadian Diamond compliments of Mittons Jewellers in Ridgetown. The lucky winner was Evelyn Konecny of Chatham.
The proceeds from the Benefit Gala will be used to cover ongoing operational needs for our community’s residential hospice ensuring families have access to compassionate, end-of-life care at no cost to them.
