Fundraising

The Society depends on the continued generosity of the community to provide the many services to palliative care patients and their families. It is this sustained community support that makes the palliative care service a true community initiative and healing partnership.

Annual “Together We Care” Golf Tournament

For 17 years dedicated golfers and supporters of the Hospice Palliative Care Society of Cape Breton County have teed off for the annual “Together We Care” Golf Tournament. This day of comradery and fun attracts sell-out teams of golfers who bring in thousands of dollars for the Hospice Palliative Care Society, while having a great time on the greens. At the Bell Bay Golf Club in Baddeck this June, 2014, golfers raised $27,000 that was donated directly to the Society.
