Hospice Society basket draw winners announced

Vancouver travel package with round trip air fare

The Comox Valley Hospice Society is pleased to announce Brian McLean and Judith Moore as the winners of the Stroke of Midnight gift basket draw for ticket purchasers to their 2015 Phantom Ball—a stay at home gala.

The basket included a Vancouver travel package with round trip air fare generously donated by Harbour Air complemented by a stay at the Century Plaza Hotel along with everything necessary for a fun getaway.

“By purchasing tickets to the Gala Phantom Ball, the Comox Valley Hospice Society invited people to spend New Year’s Eve at home while generously helping support compassionate care for people living with dying, grieving and caregiving whether at home, in hospital or in hospice at The Views,” said chair Lynn Brandon. “In doing so, people received a charitable tax receipt for 100 per cent of the gift. And, the entire gift remains right here in the Comox Valley.”

“The gratitude we hear and see from patients and families are what make us all so thankful to our generous supporters, the wonderful volunteers and our dedicated staff,” said Audrey Craig, past chair. “This year’s gold sponsors, Vancouver Island Insurance Centres and Lara Austin, RBC Wealth Management understand that compassionate hospice care is community building at its best.”
