Paying it forward for hospice
Peninsula residents got into the spirit of paying it forward at the Summertime Living and Giving Dance and Fundraiser Aug. 24.
Hosted at Beecher Place by Gayle Boutilier and Shirley Holowaychuck, the event brought in $5,400 to the White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society, which will put the money towards programs and services provided for those dealing with advanced illness and grief.
Boutillier donated Beecher Place for the function after she won the an evening at the venue in a silent auction she attended last year.
“I decided right then and there to pay it forward and use the venue certificate to host a fundraiser within the year to benefit the White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society,” Boutillier said in a release.
