Since 2020 has been such a difficult year for all of us, the team of staff and volunteers at Beth Donovan Hospice wanted to do something different to help our community members stay socially distanced, shop local for Christmas, and support the programs and services of Beth Donovan Hospice. So, they created Everything Under the Evergreen!
This unique online event is an auction that will be live starting December 1 through until December 15, and offers a large variety of items for everyone on your shopping list. With thanks to Rideau Auctions for hosting our auction, you may visit www.rideauauctions.com, click on ‘online auctions’, and search for Everything Under the Evergreen Auction for Beth Donovan Hospice. A BIG thank you to all of the community members and local merchants that made this event possible; together, we all make a difference!
As you visit your favourite stores in town, you may also notice some beautifully decorated Christmas Trees on display. These are also in support of BDH, and you can purchase a ticket to win one of these trees for your very own at the following participating merchants: Catered Affairs, Escape Salon & Spa, My Local Markets, and B&H Grocer.
As we reflect on a unique year, we are truly grateful for all of the support we have received from our community to enable us to continue to serve our clients and their families. We are proud to be part of such a special place, and encourage everyone to continue to support one another, be kind, and be proud of our community. On behalf of the Board of Directors, we wish to thank the team of staff and volunteers of BDH. They have been beacons of kindness, support and hope throughout the pandemic.
Wishing you a holiday season filled with peace and happiness.
