Christmas is nearly here and the Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary has many great ways to help with your shopping.
By making a purchase at our gift shop, our Superfluity Thrift Shop and at our group fundraisers, you help the auxiliary raise funds to support projects at the hospital, like the new emergency department.
This year, members of the Kay Hogg Goodwill Group are excited about a new fundraiser, Naughty or Ice, to be held Thursday, Dec. 1. It is an evening of wine, appetizers, music by Cheek to Cheek at West Coast Gardens, located at 1420 172 St.
There is a reverse draw, with the first prize a diamond ring valued at $2,500. The second prize is a travel voucher worth $1,200 and third prize is a manicure a month for a year.
There will be demonstrations of decorating ideas and vendors with lots of ideas for Christmas gifts. It is guaranteed to be a lot of fun.
There are a limited number of tickets, so please call Kathy at 604-535-8552 or Alicia at 604-536-5634 to participate in this fun event.
The funds raised will go towards the purchase of equipment for Peace Arch Hospital.
Our gift shop in the hospital lobby is looking very festive with lots of holiday decorations and gifts for everyone.
We have a good selection of stuffed animals and hand-knitted baby clothes. There are scarves, jewelry, handbags and new fancy tops for the holidays arriving weekly.
Please take some time to visit our gift shop the next time you are in the hospital.
Our Flower Power Group is made up of trained florists who meet each week to make our lovely floral arrangements that are sold in the gift shop. They make small arrangements that are appropriate for giving to that special person who may be in the hospital.
They are happy to make special arrangement on request. If you would like to have a custom floral arrangement, please call 604-535-4500, ext. 757475.
