The second annual Handbags for Hospice event has raised $22,000 in support of local hospice families.
The sold-out event, hosted by the Chatham-Kent Hospice Foundation, took place on October 18 at the Portuguese Social Club in Chatham. Guests enjoyed an evening of food and refreshments, however, the main attraction was the twelve bingo rounds that gave attendees a chance to win a designer handbag.
“We are so grateful to the planning committee for their hard work, to the people who donated items in memory of loved ones, and to everyone who attended,” said Jodi Maroney, executive director of the Chatham-Kent Hospice in a statement. “It is so heartwarming to see so many people come together to support our Hospice families.”
The Chatham-Kent Hospice provides comfortable end of life care for those with a terminal illness and their families.
