Handbags for Hospice

Where: Best Western PLUS Lamplighter Inn & Conference Centre
Cocktail Reception, Wine Wall & Silent Auction: 6 pm
Golden Ticket Raffle & Live Auction with The Auctionista: 7 pm
Thank you to our guests, sponsors, organizing committee and volunteers for a record-breaking evening at the sixth annual Handbags for Hospice presented by Lerners Lawyers.
This year more than 375 philanthropic women came together and raised an amazing $177,184. The funds raised will provide 24-hour care within our 10-suite residence, end-of-life support in the community, and services to those grieving the loss of a loved one.
What’s Extra Special?
In addition to the live and silent auction, the evening included a heartfelt Fund-A-Need where you went over and above helping raise $26,195 in less than 10 minutes to provide a ‘home away from home’ for those living with a terminal illness. These funds will help us cover the cost of a residential suite for six months to ensure families within our community have the opportunity to receive quality compassionate care when they need it the most.
