LOCKPORT -- Niagara Hospice will celebrate the 26th anniversary of its longest-running fundraiser, Cocktails and CA$H, at 7 p.m. Friday. The event will be held at the Cambria Volunteer Fire Company, 4631 Cambria Wilson Road.
The event is presented by the Niagara Hospice board of directors and features a grand prize of $5,000.
“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,” says James Shaw, the board treasurer.
Tickets are $100, which includes dinner for two, catered by Donna Eick, drinks, and one entry to win one of 13 cash prizes of up to $5,000.
Event coordinator Mandy Raff said the chances of winning are excellent, as only 300 tickets will be sold. The event also includes a game show theme, wine tastings by Black Willow Winery, a high-end basket raffle, 50/50 split, and the Niagara Hospice Wheel of Prizes. Additionally, one lucky person will win a magnificent diamond generously donated by George Fritz of Mills Jewelers.
Tickets may be purchased on the Event Calendar page at www.NiagaraHospice.org or by calling Raff at 280-0766.
All proceeds from Cocktails & CA$H benefit Niagara Hospice, which has been caring for individuals with end-of-life illnesses and supporting their family and loved ones through the illness, dying and grieving process since 1988.
