Jeans and bling at Hometown Hoedown

Chilliwack Hospice Society gearing up for second largest fundraiser of the year

The theme of the Hometown Hoedown for Hospice is once again Denim and Diamonds

It promises to be a stompin’ good time.

The fourth annual Hometown Hoedown for Hospice, March 14, is an evening packed with fun, music and great food.  The theme once again is Denim and Diamonds, inviting guests to dress their jeans up with their best bling and cowboy boots.

“It’s just going to be non-stop fun,” said the Chilliwack Hospice Society’s Liz Lynch. “This is our second largest fundraiser, other than the gala (held in November.)”

Last year’s Hoedown for Hospice raised an incredible $33,000 for the Hospice, with more than 200 people attending. Those returning this year can expect much of the same, including the chance to ride a mechanical bull, devour some delicious food, and dance to great music.

“The dinner is mouth watering delicious,” Lynch said, with pulled pork and chicken with all the fixings served by Smoke and Bones. There are two bands throughout the night — Concrete Jungle and Horsepower.

One top of all that, guests can take part in a silent and live auction throughout the night.

All funds raised will go programs and services provided by the Chilliwack Hospice Society, including palliative and bereavement programs and services. Some of the programs they offer are groups that help with different types of loss, including a children’s grief group, the first step grief group, an infant and pregnancy loss group, the second step group, a suicide and homicide grief support group as well as individual counselling.

Tickets for the Hometown Hoedown for Hospice are $50 per person. Last year’s event sold out, and tickets are going fast.

Doors open at 6 p.m. at the Evergreen Hall, on March 14, and the party goes until 1 a.m.

To purchase your tickets contact Tammy at (604) 795-4660 or tammy@chilliwackhospice.org.
