On Monday, February 26th, the Hospice Palliative Care Society of Cape Breton County was presented with a cheque of $209,000. This cheque was the total amount raised at the gate over the last three years at Sydney’s RibFest, an event that is organized by the Rotary Clubs of the Cape Breton Regional Municipality.
RibFest not only raised a significant amount of money for the Society and the patients and families that it supports, it also created the opportunity for Hospice to engage and expand the level of understanding of it’s role within it’s community.
The Society is forever grateful for this contribution. A special thanks extends to the supporters, volunteers, and donors that came together to make the event such a tremendous success.
