Valentine’s dinner to benefit Castlegar Hospice

Gourmet dinner delivered right to your home with proceeds benefiting hospice programs

Castlegar Hospice is offering a way to eat a gourmet meal at home with your sweetheart in your COVID bubble while supporting local hospice programs at the same time.

The organization has teamed up with Kim’s Creations Catering for a Valentine’s fundraiser on Feb. 13.

Kim will be cooking the amazing dinner and hospice volunteers will deliver the food. The menu features a charcuterie appetizer, strawberry spinach salad, choice of beef tenderloin, chicken supreme or caprese portabella mushroom entree, creamy potatoes, roasted vegetables and berry cheesecake for dessert.

Each person that purchases at Valentine’s meal will also be entered into a drawing for a gift basket that includes a stay at the Sandman Inn. To sign up for the dinner, go to castlegarhospice.org.

Like many non-profits, Castlegar Hospice has been looking for creative ways to fundraise without the usual gatherings and crowds now prohibited due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The idea of a gala banquet in your own home fits the bill.

Castlegar Hospice has been offering services throughout the pandemic to the level allowed under the current COVID guidelines. Currently they are offering appointments two days a week, palliative care services in homes and extended care facilities (under strict COVID protocols), one-on-one grief support via phone, video or in person and a grief support group.

If you or someone you know needs end-of-life or grief support, call the Castlegar Hospice at 250-304-1266.
