Community donations supporting Hospice Prince Edward

HospiceKINSMENchequeThe Kinsmen Club of Picton presented $10,000 toward the Hospice Prince Edward Community Campaign on the weekend. Kinsmen’s Phil St. Jean said the funds were collected from proceeds from the Kinsmen Bingo held on Thursday nights. “This cheque represents about a year’s worth of bingo proceeds and more than 300 volunteer hours,” St. Jean said.
The “Lighting the Way” campaign funds go toward residential hospice programming at the new 40 Downes Ave., Picton location.

Hospice Prince Edward offers compassionate, end-of-life support to clients of all ages and their caregivers, free of charge, in their own homes, hospital and long-term care facilities.  The three-bed residential hospice provides end-of-life care for clients (and their families) who can no longer, or do not wish to die at home, and do not need acute care available in hospital.

Iron Mountain’s Shred-it truck devoured documents containing important private information such as financial or tax documents and securely shredded them on-site while contributors watched. The shredded paper is recycled by Iron Mountain at its depot in Kingston.
Secure destruction of unwanted personal records is useful in the battle against identity theft. The proceeds went to the Hospice Prince Edward programs offered to the community free of charge.

Ooo La La! Hospice invites you to the City of Light

Next up is the second annual City of Light Hospice Gala, set for Nov. 16 in the Wellington Community Centre.

In its inaugural year, Autumn Leaves was both a grand evening and success raising $90,000.

“This year’s Gala Committee has chosen a theme that will provide an exciting canvas on which to build on the Autumn Leaves Gala,” said co-chairs Dr. Josh and Que Colby. “The theme this year is inspired by ‘The City of Light’ and focuses on the romance of a cool Paris evening – food, wine, music, lights and auctions.

“The decorating team is already well afoot performing the magic that filled the room in last year’s gala. The menu is being created with the fastidious attention to detail that only the French bourgeois could apply to food,” added the co-chairs. “The Entertainment Committee is working out a repertoire that one would expect to hear sitting in a cafe in Paris.”

The gala will also feature more than $40,000 in silent and live auction items. Tickets for the Nov. 16th event available by calling the hospice office at 613 645 4040 or requesting the tickets online at
The ticket cost is $150 and a charitable receipt of $75 will issued for each ticket purchased.
