Hope for Hospice 2.0
Back by popular demand, after such great feedback from last year’s event, Hope for Hospice, the ungala gala was held on Thursday, September 16, 2021.
The gala included access to a charcuterie board from a local restaurant, local entertainment, silent and live auctions featuring Layne the Auctionista. This was all brought to our tickets holders virtually from the comfort and safety of their own home!
Layne is a passionate Philanthro-tainment who has always been a huge part of events. This year she brought her expertise and energy virtually, and the event would not be the same without her!
In 2021 this event raised over $180,000 for quality end-of-life care in our community.
Thank you to Our Sponsors
Huron Shores Hospice extends a heartfelt thank you to all our sponsors of Hope for Hospice 2.0. We simply could not do what we do without your support. Thank you for partnering with us to create a world where end-of-life receives the same beauty, care and respect as the beginning, by creating moments that matter.
Hike For Hospice
Hike for Hospice is a unique national fundraising event across Canada that brings together organizations working in hospice palliative care to raise funds and awareness in their community! Each year, thousands of ‘hikers’ will participate in events put on by their local hospice palliative care organizations. All funds raised during the Hike for Hospice stay within the community in which they were raised.
In 2019 our Hike for Hospice raised $47,000. The Hike for Hospice in 2020 had to be cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions. In 2021 our Hike for Hospice was a virtual event, hiking from home, to keep everyone safe. The event raised over $70,000.
Each year we organize the Hike for Hospice through the Kincardine Trails beginning at the Davidson Centre. We cheer people on as we hike together through a 5k hike. Our community participants sign up their teams or hike as individuals and collect pledges from their friends and family.
Our 2022 Hike for Hospice is scheduled for Saturday, May 7. We hope to see everyone in person this year!
