The Beth Donovan Hospice annual fundraising gala is fast approaching.

The theme of this year’s event is Winter Wonderland and it will be held at eQuinelle Golf Course in Kemptville. The event will start with cocktails at 5:00pm on November 11th, dinner will be served at 6:00pm and tickets for the event cost $50.

Chair of the Board with the Beth Donovan Hospice Sue Walker says 100 per cent of the proceeds collected during the event go towards supporting programs run through the hospice like free medical equipment rental, a volunteer in home visiting program and bereavement counselling.

According to Walker there will be silent and live auctions, to go along with their signature event, the cake auction. Some of the prizes that attendees can bid on include a timeshare condo visit almost anywhere in the world, jewelry, art and gift certificates.

Walker adds that they look forward to seeing as many people there as possible and that even if you can’t attend they are always looking for volunteers. For more information visit the hospice website here.
