Step back in time to celebrate hospice

Surrey Hospice Society hosts The Dirty Thirties gala for 30th anniversary

Now, if you’re blue, and you don’t know where to go to, why don’t you go to the Surrey Hospice Society‘s 30th anniversary gala: The Dirty Thirties?

This year’s event, which takes place on Nov. 18 at the Aria Banquet Hall (12350 Pattullo Pl.) will highlight the start of the 1930’s era, a time when prohibition came to an end and the Golden Age of Hollywood began.

The Dirty Thirties gala opens with a VIP cocktail reception at 6 p.m. for hospice sponsors and honoured guests.

Doors to the gala dinner will open at 7pm.

Proceeds from this event will help to provide dignity and compassionate support for those living with a terminal illness and their loved ones.

As the end of life approaches, the Surrey Hospice Society is there to provide emotional, physical, and spiritual support.

Specialized counsellors offer on-going grief and bereavement programs for children, youth and adults. Regardless of their cultural or economic background we are here to support and comfort people facing end of life.

All hospice services are free of charge and an integral part of the City of Surrey.
