Red Deer Hospice Society has 250 tickets left for HospICE gala in February

Less than 250 tickets are left for the annual Red Deer HospICE Society Gala.

The gala takes place on Feb. 25, 2017 and features a four-course seated dinner, auctions and raffles, dance band, a specialty drinks and cocktail reception and an all night bar.

The hospice has provided compassionate end-of-life care in Central Alberta for 11 years and has assisted more than 1,000 residents and their families in that time. There is no charge to stay at the Red Deer Hospice and no one is ever denied access due to financial restrictions.

Last year the gala raised $160,000 for the hospice and the society hopes to raise more this year.

Gala tickets cost $200, with a $100 chartiable tax receipt. Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling the hospice at 403-309-4344.
