What a sensational night in support of Hospice Halifax! Over 1,000 people raised $140,000 in net proceeds at Feeling the Love on Saturday, February 9 at the Halifax Convention Centre. All contributions go toward the new hospice residence opening in early April 2019.

We kept it ‘social’ during the dinner with a performance by The Sarah Ellen Morrison Jazz Quintet and brief presentations from the always charming Liz Rigney, soon-to-be Hospice Halifax house volunteer, and Bob MacKinnon, CEO, Nova Scotia Gaming Corporation and event chair. Thank you Halifax Convention Centre staff for preparing and serving a delicious 3-course dinner.
The silent auction amazed with over 80 themed packages. Our guests came away with one-of-a-kind items, including a helicopter ride for four and great seats to an upcoming Toronto Maple Leafs game in Toronto…just to name a few items.
Which lucky guests won our raffle prizes? Susan Danischeski won 2 economy class tickets anywhere in North America Air Canada flies. She’ll be going on a trip soon courtesy of Air Canada Foundation.
Jane Crowell came away with his and hers Frederique Constant watches, provided by Touch of Gold.
The new hospice residence opens in early April. Keep an eye on our website and social media channels — @hospicehalifax — for more information.
Thank you, everyone. We had so much fun at Feeling the Love. See you next year!
