Niagara Hospice will celebrate the 28th anniversary of its longest-running fundraiser, “Cocktails and CA$H,” at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11. The event will be held at the Cornell Cooperative Extension at 4487 Lake 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, DDS, Niagara Hospice board treasurer.

Attendees will try and win a grand prize of $5,000. 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 Allison Bolt 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 disco theme, basket raffle, 50/50 split, wine pull, silent auction and the Niagara Hospice “Wheel of Prizes.” Additionally, someone will walk away with a $1,000 Mills Jewelers gift card 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 Bolt at 716-280-0766.

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

Call 716-439-4417 or visit www.NiagaraHospice.org to learn more.
