Trivia buffs should start sharpening their skills because Heartland Hospice is diving into the realm of games with its first trivia night fundraiser on Sept. 20, and director Trish Gottselig is more than excited for the event.
“It's something that seems to really gear towards all ages and all kinds of personalities, so it seemed inclusive,” said Gottselig. “I’m getting a great deal of interest so far, and so if it’s super successful, I’d like to do it every year.”
The topics are yet to be determined, said Gottselig, but she is sure that the evening will be interesting for both teens and adults. Trivia master Kevin Toth will host. Trivia hopefuls of all ages are welcome to try their hand at winning any of the prizes available.
Teams of up to 10 people are allowed to join, and admission will be $5 at the door on the night of the event — no need for tickets.
The event kicks off at 7 p.m. at St. Joseph’s Church in the basment hall, with snacks and beverages available for sale throughout the night. All proceeds will go right back to Heartland Hospice, as the prizes and snacks have all been donated.
Fundraisers like this one are helping Heartland Hospice get one step closer to their ultimate goal of opening a hospice care facility here in Moose Jaw.
“Heartland Hospice is working hard to raise funds, and all of our fundraising events are to promote our continued mission to support the provision of compassionate holistic care to those nearing the end of their physical life,” said Gottselig.
Heartland Hospice currently has one hospice room at the Pioneer Lodge, which became available in the spring of this year.
