All of us at Simply Elegant are humbled by the work done by Hospice Calgary. That’s why we’re very proud to announce that, once again, Hospice Calgary is Simply Elegant’s charity of choice for the 2010 season.
As we did last year, Simply Elegant and staff members plan to help raise money for Hospice Calgary through their annual walk, walking with Hospice Calgary clergy as part of “The Holy Crows.”
As we did last year, we will help the residents and staff of Hospice Calgary celebrate Christmas with a beautiful traditional feast with some non traditional accents. The Seafood Platter went over particularly well. And we will provide small events throughout the year to brighten the days of those at Hospice Calgary.
If you are inclined towards charitable giving this season, please consider a donation to Hospice Calgary. Here is a bit more about their vital efforts to bring dignity and care to those who are very ill.
