We are thrilled to announce the resounding success of the much-anticipated Handbags for Hospice 2024 event hosted by the Ed’s House Northumberland Hospice Care Centre Foundation. Thanks to the incredible support of our sponsors, donors, and community members, we raised an impressive $111,115!

Special recognition goes to our esteemed Signature Sponsor, Tony Pulla of Re/Max Lakeshore Realty, and our Pearl Sponsor, Jacqueline Pennington of Re/Max Hallmark First Group Realty, whose steadfast support has been instrumental in achieving this remarkable result.

Co-Chairs Jan Rosamond and Pam Trumper expressed their gratitude, highlighting the incredible support received from the community. Their leadership, alongside the tireless efforts of the Handbags for Hospice Committee, ensured a memorable and successful evening for all attendees.

The overwhelming support from our sponsors and the community at large has made this achievement possible. We extend our deepest appreciation to each and every individual who contributed to the success of Handbags for Hospice.

Sherry Gibson, Director of Hospice Services, emphasized the profound impact of the funds raised, highlighting their role in supporting essential hospice service programs in the community.

A major factor in the success of the event was the generous donor match from Lynn Hardy. Together with our attendees, Lynn’s matching gift for our Give a Gift from the Heart feature helped raise an incredible $33,832, directly supporting the compassionate build and completion of the final 4 suites at Ed’s House.

We'd like to express our joy at being back at the Best Western Cobourg Inn and Convention Centre for the Handbags for Hospice 2024 event and extend our sincere appreciation to all the staff, particularly Brad and Jessica, for their incredible support and hospitality. Their dedication ensured that our event was not only successful but also memorable for all attendees.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all sponsors, donors, and supporters for their invaluable contributions. Your generosity makes a profound difference in the lives of those in need.
