The Chilliwack Hospice Society is adding its voice to World Hospice Day, Saturday Oct. 8., with Voices for Hospice at Decades Coffee Club on Wellington Avenue.

The event is part of a worldwide movement to increase community interest and knowledge about hospice and palliative care and will also serve as a local fundraiser.

Vocalists and musicians will donate their time and talents to this event from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Long & McQuade has donated an Epiphone guitar for a raffle prize

Decades Coffee Club, venue sponsor, will be open for business as usual so guests will be able to purchase their own refreshments.

Chilliwack Hospice Society says it will be making an exciting announcement about two new music programs being delivered in the community during the intermission.
