At Home Hospice North Lanark, we know first-hand how important good memories are. When life gets tough, or when we’re bereaved, it is memories that can sustain us. It is our intention to assist our clients to live their best life each and every day. It is important to keep making memories!

So, when we started planning our online fundraising auction this year, we decided to create something a little different. We are offering the opportunity to make beautiful memories.

We are reaching out to local businesses and individuals asking for gift cards and/or vouchers. We will then combine these items into packages that folks can bid on to get the memory-making started.

It’s going to be grand! We’re working hard to make this the most exciting auction possible, with lots of really interesting options for a wide range of people — couples, families, older people, younger people, quirky people and those who love sports (to mention just a few).

We will be asking primarily local businesses, and are hoping that people will learn about new-to-them shops through the auction. We will highlight these businesses on our website, social media, and, depending on the level of sponsorship, on our posters and in press releases. Our hope is that it will be a win-win-win situation. Memories get made, local businesses get new customers, and HHNL raises much-needed funds. We don’t get any government funding for our HHNL programs, so it is essential that we raise enough money to fund the free programs and services we offer.

We’ll have something for all interests and budgets! You’ll be able to preview the amazing packages at starting April 10.
