Six west-end Ottawa United Churches are coordinating efforts to raise money for Hospice Care Ottawa, specifically to support the construction of the Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice – Kanata.
Stittsville United, Bells Corner United, Glen Cairn United, Kanata United, St. Paul’s United (Carp), and St. Paul’s United (Richmond) have set a goal to jointly raise at least $50,000 for Hospice Care Ottawa with fundraising events wrapping up by the end of March 2018. All money raised will be directed to fund a room in Hein House which will help to highlight the importance of community involvement in hospice programs and operations.
In support of this campaign, Stittsville United will be hosting a Bridge/Euchre/Lunch Fundraising Event on Thursday, October 12. The event will start at 11:00 a.m. with coffee and muffins. Cost for the day is $20 per person.
There will also be another event later in October. Mark your calendar for a Fashion Show/Sale by Swirlicious on Sunday, October 29 at 1:00 p.m. – $10.00 person. More information will be provided as the date comes closer.
I highly encourage all residents looking for an opportunity to socialize and play some Bridge/Euchre to consider joining in support of this great cause.
