Have you ever had reason to be at the West Island Palliative Care Centre? If not, consider yourself lucky. So many have, and yet what I hear from anyone who has lost a loved one who got to spend there final days there is, "That place, and the people who work there, are amazing."
This Saturday, October 23, there will be a party at Bourbon Street West with all proceeds benefitting the West Island Palliative Care Centre.
The party is in honor of Michael Charles (my friend Tanya's brother) and all others who fought hard and lost their battle to cancer. In the words of Tanya Charles:
I will be there to honor Michael, Claudine's Dad, Delphine's mom, Lori's mom, Tanya's (that'd be me) mother-in-law and everyone else who lost life.
The band Crave will be playing, as well as a great DJ and a jam set with appearances from Jeff Smallwood and other musicians. Feeling lucky? Raffles and door prizes to be won as well.
Tickets are $15, which includes one free drink and one raffle ticket. Did I mention that all proceeds will benefit the West Island Palliative Care?
Tickets are available at the door and at the following businesses:
Musicircle 4822 boul St Jean; Aux Jeux 3683 boul St Jean; and XS Tattoo & Piercing 999 boul St Jean.
Tickets also available by contacting Cookie (Corina Charles) at 514-999-6824.
Feel free to spread the word about this great cause, my friends.
