Hearts for Hospice Dine and Dance: Lively fundraising event set for Feb. 8th

Event will feature live band, catered meal, silent auction, and much more

It’s time to bring out your dancing shoes for the Hearts for Hospice Dine and Dance at the Stettler Community Hall on Feb. 8th.

Organizers say it will be a fun evening with live music by The Chevelles — a band from Lethbridge who aim to fill the dance floor with rock n’ roll performances.

The Chevelles were in Stettler last year for the regimental ball and organizers say they just had to bring them back to town for the Hearts for Hospice Dine and Dance.

“It’s going to be a great evening,” said Karin Phibbs, fundraising chair of the Stettler Hospice Society.

“People who have heard the band have just raved about them. It’s going to be an exceptionally fun evening.”

The event also features a catered meal, silent auction, live entertainment, a cash bar and midnight lunch, with funds going towards the running of the hospice, Phibbs said.

This will be the second main fundraising event for the hospice and Phibbs says she’d be “ecstatic” if over 300 people attended the dine and dance.

While Phibbs would be happy with with whatever they could financially gain from the fundraising evening, a goal is to make upwards of approximately $10,000.

“It has been just amazing,” Phibbs said. “The community support we have had over the last two years … people are really wanting this.”

If the Stettler Hospice Society is able to get Alberta Health Services approval Phibbs says that they could more than likely open the hospice as of April.

Tickets for the Hearts for Hospice Dine and Dance are $60 and are available for purchase at www.stettlerboxoffice.com. Tickets will not be available at the door.

Cocktails will start at 5 p.m. with supper to follow.
