Thank you for attending the 10th Annual Sage Soirée!
On November 10, 2022, Hospice Calgary’s supporters gathered at the Calgary Golf and Country Club to celebrate the patients, family members, and staff of Rosedale Hospice.
Throughout the evening, guests enjoyed a cocktail reception, a delicious meal, and speeches from Nadia Kolesnikova and John Wort Hannam. Nadia’s stories of her volunteer experience at Rosedale Hospice painted a picture of the comfort our volunteer team strives to provide daily. John’s touching tribute to his late father resonated with many of our audience members, and the songs he wrote and performed about his dad were excellent tributes.
To check out more of John’s music, go to his website.
Through the generosity of our sponsors McInnis & Holloway Funeral Homes and Connect First Credit Union, as well as our silent auction donors, ticket purchases, and donors, we raised over $65,000. These funds will support the operational costs of the critical programming offered in all three of our programs; The Children’s Grief Centre, Rosedale Hospice, and the Living with Advanced Illness Centre.
A special thank you to our centrepiece sponsor, The Calgary Flower Market, Sage Soiree Committee member Rhodelle Ireland, and our event photographer, David Kotsibie. A full list of the wonderful individuals and businesses supporting our silent auction can be found here.
