We are a non-Profit Society, and we work hard to provide support and help to those facing a life limiting illness and their grieving loved ones. We have been serving the community of Surrey since 1986, helping thousands of residents deal with loss and the grief it leaves behind.
We host a number of programs that help our community including free hospice and palliative support, clinical counselling, and youth and child support. To continue to fund these programs we rely heavily on fundraising. We hope to find new ways to fundraise as it has been very hard for us in the last couple of years as we’ve been unable to host events in our other traditional ways. We are planning a new, and upcoming event, an on-line art auction in April and we hope to follow with a “Art in the Park” day for artists, taking place in the summer. We want to bring more recognition to local artists and to highlight the work we do in hospice.
However, to make this event a true triumph and bring the best experience to our community, we want to ask for your help. Would you be willing to make an art donation to our organization? We would love any help you can give. Look through your studios, because even just a small donation will help us contribute to a larger positive impact. We will strive to have your art, name, studio and contact information readily available along with your art to let the community be aware of your work and its legacy to help others in need.
If you’d be willing to contribute a donation of any kind, please contact us at 604-584-7006, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org We can arrange a drop off or pick up.
We’d love to begin this conversation! A very heartfelt thank you for your time. Your support will allow us to continue providing free resources to the people in our community who need them most. People like you truly make a difference in the world, and we’re incredibly grateful!
We will be using art donations to help fund our free grief programs for the community. We will be holding the online auction dated to launched on April 29th and will end June 29th 2022. During this time art can still be donated and added to our auction site when we receive it. The last day for submitting artwork would be June 28th 12pm (PST) 24hrs before the auction ends.
We also are planning a future “Art in the Park” day where the community can come meet local artists and purchase artwork publicly displayed, (no set time or date for this event, as of yet).
