Abbotsford Hospice Society is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year with the introduction of a new unique memorial gift.

Lee’s Fine Jewellery has custom-designed solid sterling silver butterfly pendants replicating the charity’s logo.

“It symbolizes love, relationships and new beginnings,” said executive director Debbie Lehmann. “It also represents history and continuity, and a way to connect to your loved ones or friends who have passed away.”

The new pendant debuts at the Hospice Society’s annual Silver Ball fundraiser in February. The evening includes dinner, multicultural entertainment, and a live and silent auction. Performances will feature the Punjabi Cultural Bhangra Club of Abbotsford, and the Now or Never dance crew.

A variety of items will be up for grabs in the live and silent auction including handcrafted jewellery, wine, a day spent with Abbotsford Police Chief Bob Rich and dinner at Restaurant 62 with Mark Evered, president of the University of the Fraser Valley.

Silver Ball starts at 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 5 at the Ramada Plaza and Conference Centre. Tickets are $125. Proceeds will help the Hospice Society continue to provide free support services to terminally ill patients and their families.
