Castlegar Hospice holding online auction

Find out how you can support local hospice services

The Castlegar Hospice Society (CHS) is hosting an online fundraising auction.

The society offers compassionate palliative care and grief support services and has been recognized on local, provincial, national, and even international levels for excellency and innovation.

With COVID-19 hindering the society’s usual fundraising events, CHS has had to get creative and an online auction is one way to raise funds without crowds of people gathering together.

The online auction is open now and closes Friday, Oct. 22 at 4 p.m.

Up for grabs are a variety of items including jewelry, an oil change, gift baskets, a homemade quilt, local gift certificates and a Christmas baking basket that includes 12 dozen assorted holiday goodies delivered to your door in November.

All funds raised during the auction will stay local and benefit the Castlegar Hospice Society.

The silent auction can be found at castlegarhospice.org/auction.
