Niagara Hospice sets 25th anniversary fundraiser

CAMBRIA – Niagara Hospice will celebrate the 25th anniversary of its longest-running fundraiser, “Cocktails and CA$H,” at 7 p.m. Oct. 16 in Cambria Volunteer Fire Company, 4631 Cambria-Wilson Road. Featured every year is a series of drawings for 13 cash prizes, with a top prize of $5,000.

“It’s hard to believe it has been twenty-five years,” said Dr. James Shaw, Niagara Hospice treasurer. “This event has changed venues, themes and caterers, but the constant has always been the people of this community giving generously to support the compassionate care of Niagara Hospice.”

Tickets cost $100 and include dinner for two catered by Donna Eick, drinks and one entry to win one of the cash prizes. Event coordinator Mandy Raff said ticket holders need not be present to win money, and only 300 tickets will be sold. The event also includes a masquerade theme, wine tastings by Black Willow Winery, a high-end basket raffle, 50-50 splits, and the Niagara Hospice Wheel of Prizes. Someone will walk away with a magnificent diamond generously donated by George Fritz of Mills Jewelers.

Tickets can be purchased on the Event Calendar page at or by calling Raff at 280-0766.
