Niagara Hospice will celebrate the 26th anniversary of its longest-running fundraiser, "Cocktails and CA$H," at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21. The event will be held at the Cambria Volunteer Fire Co., 4631 Cambria Wilson Road, Lockport. It is presented by the Niagara Hospice board of directors.

"This event has changed venues, themes and caterers, but the constant has always been the people of this community giving generously to support the compassionate care of Niagara Hospice," said James Shaw, D.D.S., Niagara Hospice board treasurer.

Tickets are $100 and include dinner for two catered by Donna Eick, drinks and one entry to win one of 13 cash prizes of up to $5,000. Event coordinator Mandy Raff said winners need not be present to win a cash prize, and that chances of winning are excellent, as only 300 tickets will be sold.

The event also includes a game show theme, wine tastings by Black Willow Winery, a high-end basket raffle, 50/50 split, and the Niagara Hospice "Wheel of Prizes." Additionally, someone will walk away with a diamond generously donated by George Fritz of Mills Jewelers.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased on the event calendar page at www.NiagaraHospice.org or by contacting Raff at 716-280-0766.

All proceeds from "Cocktails & CA$H" benefit Niagara Hospice.

Hospice is a way of caring for individuals with end-of-life illnesses, and provides support for their family and loved ones through the illness, dying and grieving process. Niagara Hospice has provided end-of-life care since 1988, serving over 25,000 patients and their families, and is the only hospice provider in Niagara County.
