Heart for the Holidays Party, Friday, December 04, 2009 at 8:00pm. Every year there are families faced with what might be the most trying moments of their lives – dealing with a family member’s battle against terminal illness. The burden of the emotional, physical and financial pain leave them with little energy to cherish the precious last moments they have with their ill family member. The Heart House Hospice is a volunteer driven organisation which reaches out to these families in their time of greatest need. They serve as the pillars to lighten the load put on the families, they become friends to those that are lonely and most importantly, become companions that guide, enriching and adding poignancy to each last moment they have left. This year we want to raise money to directly reach out to these families and give them food and gifts to be able to enjoy what might be the last holiday season they share together. Join #GenyTO at Marben to aid us in our goal of raising $20,000 for families in need. The event is brought to you by the team behind #GenYTO and promises to be great start to the holiday season with great music and great prizes. What may just be another night out for you can help to create one of the most memorable holiday seasons of someone’s life. $15.00
