Hospice fundraiser looks for support

Clearwater and District Hospice Society seeks more ticket sales for its A Touch of Mexico event on June 16

Editor, The Times:

For the past five weeks, posters have been displayed in Clearwater and Little Fort advertising A Touch of Mexico, a fundraiser for the Clearwater and District Hospice Society on June 16, 2012 at Royal Canadian Legion.

We are very disappointed in the community response to this event. Somehow people have the impression that the food is something you would get at an Taco outlet, but it is far from it. The menu will be highlighting tastes of the food from various areas of Mexico and adjusted to local palates. Much has already been done for this event and all by volunteers. Like the hospital auxiliary, the hospice program is a vital part of the community and if not supported what will happen? We are here to provide compassionate care to those people that are in the last days of their lives and to grieving families. Can you ignore this need?

Please purchase your tickets from our volunteers at Safety Mart and the Farmers’ Market or from Wells Gray Inn and Clearwater Dollar Emporium. Thank you in advance.
