Support Ed’s House Northumberland Hospice Care Centre

Handbags for Hospice fundraising event

Community Care Northumberland is hosting its second Handbags for Hospice fundraiser in support of Ed’s House Northumberland Hospice Care Centre.

This year’s event will feature an online silent auction from June 1st to 10th, accessible via www.commcare.ca, which will allow participants to bid virtually on a selection of approximately forty bags with a range of different styles, colours, sizes and prices. The full Handbags for Hospice event will be returning in February of 2022.

Tony Pulla, Remax Lakeshore Realty Inc., is the signature sponsor for this year’s event. “I believe that giving back to my community is important,” said Tony. “I am proud to support Ed’s House, our Northumberland Hospice Care Centre, a calm, compassionate place for families to be with their loved ones when it is needed most.”

“Building on the success of our first Handbags for Hospice event last year, we are excited to offer this online ‘teaser’ fundraiser and look forward to February when we are able to host our full event,” said Nancy Oliver, chair of the special events committee and board member of the Ed’s House Foundation. “Ed’s House and our Handbags for Hospice event count on the generosity of our sponsors, Tony Pulla and Spoolon Manufacturing Ltd., donors and participants and we thank them for their continued support of hospice care and services in our community.”

An integral service of Community Care Northumberland, Ed’s House is a hospice centre in Hamilton Township that provides resident care, grief and bereavement support, health system navigation, caregiver support and palliative support to people with a life-limiting illness, their caregivers and their families. Care and services are provided at no cost to clients and their loved ones.

Last year’s inaugural event raised $87,000 for Ed’s House, in addition to a $35,000 pledge from Mitzify Canada Group Inc.
