Letter from Board Chair & Executive Director

“Our goal at Crossroads Hospice Society is to maximize the quality of life for terminally ill patients, their families and the bereaved. Tonight, we ask you to help make a difference in the lives of others and live life to the fullest.”

Dear Guests,

Welcome to our 25th Annual Treasures of Christmas Gala presented by the ARMS PUB Port Coquitlam. Thank you for making the time to be our guests this evening and for being part of a special, caring and compassionate com- munity.

As a well-respected community hospice society in Metro Vancouver, we play an important role in the delivery of hospice palliative care for patients with terminal illnesses and their loved ones. The work and support we provide is made possible through generous partners, donors and guests like you.

We would like to extend a very special thank you to the ARMS PUB Port Coquitlam, the presenting sponsor of the Treasures of Christmas Gala for the sixth year in a row! And at this time, we would also like to say thank you to our Special Events Coordinator, Shelly Pennington; Development Officer, Anna Wilczewski; Administrative Assistant, Rhea Miguel; Financial and Office Administrator, Nadia Eveneshen; Administrative Assistant, Kathleen Holzermayr, and our amazing Special Event Volunteers for their tireless efforts and creativity – we truly appreciate your support and passion for Crossroads.

Funds raised tonight will support the day-to-day operations of Crossroads Inlet Centre Hospice and the delivery of hospice palliative care and bereavement support programs in Coquitlam, Port Moody, Port Coquitlam, Anmore, Belcarra and New Westminster.

On behalf of those who rely on the compassionate, dignified care and support services provided by Crossroads Hospice – from within our community and across BC – we say a heart-felt thank you.

Gratefully yours,

Alice Hale
Chair – Crossroads Hospice Society, Board of Directors
