Hearts Gone Wild event to help hospice

Castlegar and District Hospice Society is hosting the Hearts Gone Wild fundraiser.

Just in time for Valentine's Day


’tis the season for romance and what’s more romantic than chocolate and lingerie? Just in time  for Valentine’s Day, the Castlegar and District Hospice Society is presenting “Hearts Gone Wild” at

Chances Gaming Centre ballroom on Feb. 9.

This is a new event for Hospice,” said executive director Suzanne

Lehbauer. “It involves chocolate, champagne, a dessert buffet, a

chocolate fountain, and a fabulously sexy lingerie fashion show by

Fashion Foundations. We’re also going to have Safeway floral on hand

as well and Linda’s Photo Op to take pictures of people. We’ll have

some great accompaniments if people want to get dressed up.”

Also at the event, Detail’s Chocolate Expressions will be there giving out

samples, and selling chocolates as well.

“People can come have a wonderful evening and order their valentine’s

chocolates, flowers and lingerie in advance,” said Lehbauer. “We

have a three piece jazz trio from Selkirk College performing as


Tickets are $20 and includes a glass of sparkling pink wine, samples of

chocolates, dessert buffet with the chocolate fountain, and an entry

into the door prizes.

Our big door prize is airfare for two to Vancouver,” said Lehbauer.

“You’ll be able to buy additional chances while you’re there. It’s

going to be a fabulous time for singles and couples with lots of

goodies. We’re having a bit of a Moulin Rouge theme this year, so

it’s going to be quite over-the-top. It’s something that’s a little

different for the area. If it’s a success we’re going to incorporate

it as one of our yearly events.”

Tickets are available at the Castlegar and District Hospice Society office,

Mountain FM, Glen’s Haircuts, Fashion Foundations, and Chances Gaming

Centre. You can even call Suzanne at the Hospice office at

250-304-1266 for delivery in town.

All funds raised stay in the community and help benefit Castlegar Hospice

Society to provide all the services and support and community

education,” said Lehbauer.
