Another thank you to the local community

The Red Deer Hospice Society is overwhelmed with the generosity and support of over 430 guests at our 10th annual Spring Gala.

Despite last minute date and venue change, the evening was a great success.

The March 31 event was attended by over 430 people and netted over $100,000 in support of the comfort and care operations at the Hospice.

Auctioneer Danny Hooper kept the crowd busy as 16 items were auctioned through live auctions and 100 items purchased in silent auctions.

Special thanks to all dedicated attendees, volunteers and supporters who make a positive contribution to end-of-life care in Central Alberta.

To date, the Hospice has journeyed with nearly 300 individuals and their loved ones providing compassionate care for all who are facing this difficult time.
