Thank you to all who sponsored, purchased a ticket, bid on a live or silent auction item, played our games at the event and volunteered.

Partner With Us!
Handbags for Hospice is an annual gala that brings together 170 women for a fabulous evening of handbags, food, drink, laughs, fun and fundraising to celebrate the Power of the Purse. The Last handbags event in 2019 was a glamourous fundraising gala, which raised over $180,000. We look forward to welcoming back our Handbags for Hospice event in 2022. This year’s empowering evening consists of live and silent auctions of over ninety designer handbags, luxury experiences and getaways, as well as a wine wall, trivia game and a premium prize raffle. The evening will once again feature the high-energy, entertainment-packed Layne, The Auctionista. In the past, this event sold out in a few hours and we expect this year’s event to sell out quickly as well!
On Thursday, September 15, 2022, Huron Shores Hospice will host our 6th annual gala at Kincardine’s Pavilion to raise funds that will help sustain our two-bed residential suites. All proceeds from the gala will go to our community hospice and programming to ensure that quality end-of-life care and grief recovery is available for your friends, family and neighbours.
SPONSORSHIP! We invite you to partner with us to create a world where end-of-life receives the same beauty, care and respect as the beginning, by making moments matter for our residents and their families. Handbags for Hospice will highlight your commitment to this important service in our community and heighten your brand awareness with a captive audience. We offer several ways for you to make a difference by choosing one of the levels offered in our Corporate and Community Sponsorship Packages.
Thank You to our Partners!
