The 2021 Hospice Quinte Gala celebrating 35 years in the community has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
To help raise funds for Hospice Quinte, the organization will be hosting an exciting new raffle in place of the gala.
The Lucky Luxury Raffle will feature a St. Patrick’s Day theme and tickets are available now for $40 each. 500 raffle tickets are available and 21 prize packages to be won with a total value of $9,899. There is no limit to the number of raffle tickets that an individual can purchase.
As COVID-19 continues to complicate fundraising initiatives for non-profit organizations in the Quinte region, Hospice Quinte has been innovative in organizing a pandemic-friendly fundraiser in which residents can participate from home.
“While we were deeply saddened to announce the cancellation of our 35th Anniversary Gala, we are extremely pleased to announce the launch of Hospice Quinte’s inaugural Lucky Luxury Raffle,” said Hospice Quinte executive director Jennifer May-Anderson. “Thanks to the caring generosity and continued support of our donors and sponsors, we have been able to create this exciting St. Patrick’s Day-themed raffle to help raise funds in support of Hospice Quinte’s traditional programs and services.”
All proceeds from Hospice Quinte’s Lucky Luxury Raffle will be allocated to the organization’s general operations and assist in recouping funding lost due to the cancellation of the annual Gala event.
The raffle draw will take place on March 17th at the Hospice Quinte office in Bayview Mall. More details about the Lucky Luxury Raffle, view prize packages and rules of play can be found online at hospicequinte.ca.
Hospice Quinte will be drawing the winning tickets live from the Hospice Quinte Office in Bayview Mall via the organization’s Facebook page at 12 p.m. on St. Patrick’s Day.
