Annual Divalicious fundraiser returns

Event on Oct. 17 hosted by Abbotsford Hospice Society

The annual Divalicious fundraiser for the Abbotsford Hospice Society (AHS) takes place Tuesday, Oct. 17.

The event starts at 5:30 p.m. at the Phoenix Ballroom on King Road.

Divalicious features appetizers, a fashion show featuring the latest looks from Ronald Allan Clothiers, and the opportunity to bid on auction items such as two tickets to anywhere WestJet flies and items from Lanka Jewels.

Singer Cathy Merkel will be the featured entertainer.

Guest attending this year’s event will receive a “passport” when they receive their welcome drink. The passport can be stamped at five different zones – Diva Loves Bling, Diva on the Go!, Active Diva, Tasteful Diva and Gourmet Diva.

Money raised at the event goes towards Holmberg House, a 10-bed hospice residence supporting end-of-life clients and their families.

While Fraser Health provides the necessary medical care, all other support services are provided by the staff and volunteers of AHS at a daily cost of approximately $300 per patient.

With no government funding, AHS relies on the generosity of its donors to fulfill its mission.

Tickets are $50 and are available online at abbotsfordhospice.org/Diva
