Ladies Night 2019 – Peace Arch Hospice Society Fundraiser
It is with great enthusiasm and joy that West Coast Gardens was able to raise funds and present a cheque for $5,000 to the Peace Arch Hospice Society.
On Thursday April 25th 2019 we hosted our annual Ladies Night. Tickets were $10 each and went on sale at the beginning of March. We had 500 tickets for sale and they sold out within two weeks.
Prior to launching the event we had a discussion as a team and voted on what charity we wanted to collectively support this Spring. We chose the Peace Arch Hospice Society. Rather than only donating a portion of the ticket sales and try to cover some expenses for the event (wine and food, live music and draw prizes) we decided to cover the costs ourselves and donate all the ticket proceeds. This decision was confirmed by the owners of West Coast Gardens: Jill & Nathan VanHuizen and Jason & Wybranda Vandermey.
The Peace Arch Hospice Society was so appreciative of the donation. Beth Kish, the Executive Director and the team from PAH were at the event to accept the cheque (see attached photos). These funds are urgently needed for those who are at a very vulnerable time in their life and we are so happy to make a contribution.
Thank you to everyone who attended and helped this fundraiser be such a success!
