The third installment of the Everything Under the Evergreen Auction comes to a wrap, having raised a whopping  $12,500. This amount more than doubled what was raised in 2022. 

Executive Director Sue Walker has a message for the community “Thank you to our generous community for making it the best auction year ever”.

Over 200 auction items were donated by local businesses and community members, with hundreds of individuals logging in to bid. The fundraiser is only made possible by Rideau Auctions who not only hosted the auction, but also took all the photos and removed any fees associated with the platform meaning that all funds raised went directly to the Hospice. 

Funds raised from this auction go to support the ongoing needs of those in the community living with a life-limiting illness through grief and bereavement programs, day hospice, in-home visiting, support groups and equipment loans.
