Our annual gala plays a vital role in raising the funds needed to continue to deliver on our promise to ensure that our people live their final days with grace and dignity.
Heart House Hospice is an important part of the health care team here in Mississauga. As a health service provider, we value and promote the health and well-being of the people we serve, our donors and partners, and our volunteers and staff. It is with this in mind and the concern regarding the impact on our community of Covid 19 that we have made the difficult decision to postpone our upcoming gala on Saturday March 28, 2020 at the Mississauga Convention Centre.
Our new gala date is set for Friday, October 23, 2020 at the Mississauga Convention Centre.
Our fundraising events and activities at Heart House Hospice accounts for more than 35% of our annual operating budget, bridging the gap between our exceptional level of service and the funding received from the Ministry of Health. The success of our fundraising activities allows individuals and caregivers to participate in our hospice counselling, day wellness programs, in-home volunteer support, complementary therapies, spiritual support, HUUG child and youth program, and bereavement counselling. Therefore the decision to postpone our annual gala was a difficult one to make.
Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing everyone on October 23.
