Dinner-Dance Hospice Hop

Support a Residential Hospice for Lanark County residents living with life-limiting illnesses. Dignity House Hospice is committed to bringing a residential hospice to Lanark County. Eveything is in place…that is except for funding. All our programs are supported through financial donations. At this time there is no funding from any government sectors. Let’s show our neighbours and the rest of Ontario that we care about end-of-life care.

Attend the Hospice Hop on November 12, 2011, where every cent raised goes directly to the Residential Hospice Fund. Doors open at 6:30pm at the Civitan Club of Perth on Hwy 43. Dinner will be served at 7:15pm and Eddy and The Stingrays will start playing at 8pm. There will be a silent auction, door prizes, 50-50 draws, quilt raffle and surprise game! Have a fun-filled evening for a good cause! Tickets are $50 per person with a $25 income tax receipt.
