Hospice association’s annual Celebration of Caring Hands event again roaring success

“We are tremendously blessed to live and operate our society in the generous, caring and committed communities of Osoyoos and Oliver. Thank you does not start to express our appreciation to the local companies and individuals who together donated more than $15,000 worth of goods and services to our auction, and to all the people who opened their wallets so generously to make tonight such a success,” she said.

The wine and cheese and auction event is DVHS’ biggest fundraiser of the year. Held for the first time ever in the spectacular foyer of Frank Venables Theatre, this year’s glittering evening included wines from the event’s host winery, Moon Curser Vineyards, live music, an always popular bake sale and fast and furious bidding in silent and live auctions. 

The event also served as welcome to DVHS’ newest board directors, elected just five days earlier at DVHS’ annual general meeting.

New to the board are Steven Hopp, Christine Yost and Pat Wycherley from Osoyoos and Ron Pidduck from Oliver.
