Four Elements: Grand Finale
Thank you to our generous community for helping us raise more than $140,000 (and counting!) to support St. Joseph’s Hospice!
Honouring the fifth anniversary of residential care at St. Joseph’s Hospice, more than 250 community members came out to experience the beauty of all four elements in one magical evening at the Four Elements for Hospice Grand Finale, raising more than $143,000 (and counting!) for hospice palliative care. Our guests enjoyed a delicious themed three-course dinner, energetic stylings of the Great Canadian Duelling Piano’s, and element inspired décor – not to mention the best Live Auction in London hosted by Layne, “The Auctionista” and the heartfelt appeal for residential care made by John Fyfe-Millar. John’s words moved the crowd to help raise $46,470 in less than 5 minutes with a surprise gift of $10,000 from McCormick Canada.
Thank you to our guests, sponsors, planning committee, donors, volunteers and everyone who made the Grand Finale a night to remember.
