Golden Hospice Society volunteers

Hospice raffle winners announced

The Golden Hospice Society announced the winners of their raffle.

The Golden Hospice Society is excited to hand out the prizes to their raffle winners.

The fundraising raffle has been going on since Nov. 1, and the three prize winners were chosen on Dec. 15.

Congratulations to Chris Drysdale, winner of a hand-crafted quilt, Nuala Wolfe, winner of an angel, and Sparky Dewart, winner of a meat and cheese platter from the Golden Bakery.

The Golden Hospice Society is a community-based program dedicated to providing individuals and families with supportive, compassionate care while they are facing death and grieving.

The funds raised from this raffle will go to the society, and help them with training for their volunteers.

“We are delighted with the support we’ve received. It’s a busy time of year, and a lot of sales going on, so we were delighted to have a piece of the action. Thank you very much to everyone who bought tickets,” said Martie Salisbury, volunteer with the society.
