No Show Gala tickets now available in support of Red Deer Hospice

Tickets are $25 and you don’t have to show up

With construction underway to add 15,000 square feet to their existing facility, the Red Deer Hospice Society has decided to take a new direction for their 2019 annual Gala.

“Between construction efforts making space a premium and additional considerations for the $5.2 million Expansion Fundraising Campaign underway, we knew it was a unique year. We wanted to be responsive and respectful to our donors and our sponsors but also have some fun with it,” shared Lori Dufresne, Red Deer Hospice event coordinator.

With the launch of the No Show Gala for 2019, Red Deer Hospice is still looking for Gala attendees and public support by asking them to purchase a $25 ticket and then not show up. The ticket offers purchasers the opportunity to win one of three great prizes plus an early bird prize for tickets purchased by Jan. 31st, 2019.

Grand prizes include the Grand Luxxe Condo: a seven day vacation in Nuevo Vallarta or the Mayan Riviera (condo sleeps six and includes golf and massage certificates). This is courtesy of Laser and Skin Medspa.

Another prize includes a Calgary Stampede Concert, which gets you concert tickets, dinner and all beverages included for 12 guests. This is courtesy of Calgary Sport & Entertainment Corporation.

Lastly there is the prize of Hockey Night in Canada, which includes a Toronto Maple Leaf game and Hockey Night in Canada studio tour for four (includes airfare and $1,000 accommodation credit). This is courtesy of Ron and Cari McLean/Glover International & The Phone Experts.
