On Saturday

Hearts Gone Wild, fundraiser for Castlegar Hospice

Hearts Gone Wild will be held at the Element Club Bar and Grill on Saturday, Feb. 13, from 7 to 10 p.m.

This year the Castlegar Hospice Society’s Valentine’s Day event has moved to a new location.

Hearts Gone Wild will be held at the Element Club Bar and Grill on Saturday, Feb. 13, from 7 to 10 p.m.

Attendees can expect chocolate samples from Doodle Bug Chocolates, a lingerie fashion show from Fashion Foundations and some bubbly to share with that someone special.

“It’s lots of fun for either couples or groups of friends,” says Suzanne Lehbauer, executive director at the hospice.

Yanive Feiner from Supercat Studios will also be acting as DJ and will be playing lots of ’80s dance tunes.

Money raised through the event will benefit the programs and services provided to the community by the Castlegar Hospice Society, including its grief support services. Lehbauer says there has been a huge increase in the need for grief support in the community, and that the society will soon be offering special learning lunches for employers.

“So that they can learn to work with their employees that have suffered a loss,” she explains.

Tickets are $20 in advance, or $25 at the door, and are available at the Castlegar Hospice office, Fashion Foundations, the Goat and the Element.

This year there is also the option to add dinner for a total cost of $50 per person. The Element will serve a special set menu for the evening.

For more information, call the Castlegar Hospice office at 250-304-1266.
