Equinox Breakfast at Wiles Lake Farm Market (In support of the SS Palliative Care & Hospice Society)
September 20 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am
South Shore Hospice and Palliative Care Society Fundraiser
I am very pleased to announce we will be hosting a breakfast to support the South Shore Palliative Care and Hospice Society on September 20th. This has become a cause near and dear to my heart given my life experience of the last six months. I like many, knew little about palliative care. I like many, believed we have extensive services and facilities to accommodate the needs of our families and friends who need palliative care. I have learned that we are sadly lacking on many fronts. I can vouch for the dedicated care and compassion offered by the Dr. Debra Gowan and her palliative care team working in Lunenburg and Queens County. However, there remain incredible gaps.
The goal of this breakfast is to increase awareness of the needs of our community, the work of the society to address these needs, and the fundraising required to support them. I invite you to come learn about how we can improve palliative care at South Shore Regional, provide more home support, and build a hospice. It is early days and donations are important to build community support. These can be made at the breakfast and tax receipts will be issued.
Here are the details:
Equinox Breakfast – 7:30 – 9:30 am, Wile’s Lake Farm Market – FRIDAY, Sept. 20. Tickets are available here at the Market – $30/ticket, cash or cheque only.
