Letter from Board Chair & Executive Director

“At Crossroads Hospice we focus on putting life into days for our patient’s remaining time with their families.  Tonight, we ask you to join us in living in the moment.”

Dear Friends,

Welcome to our 24th Annual Treasures of Christmas Gala presented by the ARMS PUB.  Thank you so much for making the time to be our Guests this evening and for being part of a special “Caring Community.”

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

We would like to extend our personal thanks to the ARMS PUB, the presenting sponsor for Treasures of Christmas Gala for five years running.  Thank you to our Special Events Coordinator Shelly Pennington and Development Officer, Anna Wilczewski, Administrative Assistant Rhea Miguel and our amazing Committee for your tireless efforts and creativity – we truly appreciate all of your support.

The funds raised tonight support the operations of Crossroads Inlet Centre Hospice Residence and 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 care and services provided by Crossroads Hospice, from both within our community and across BC, we say a heart-felt thank you.

Gratefully yours,

Alice Hale
Chair – Crossroads Hospice Society, Board of Directors

Tereza McDermid
