More than 1100 guests attended Galalicious on Oct. 19 in support of Hospice Vaughan.
Proceeds from this sold-out event allow Hospice Vaughan to continue providing much-needed support and compassionate care to individuals and their families coping with life-limiting illness or dealing with the loss of a loved one.
The evening marked yet another milestone in the Hospice Vaughan journey. With the incredible generosity of the Cortellucci family and all capital donors, construction of Hospice Vaughan – The Mario and Nick Cortellucci Hospice Palliative Care Centre of Excellence, has begun with the goal of opening its doors in late 2019. This facility will include a 10-bed residential hospice, family support and bereavement services, and visiting hospice services; and will serve as a community hub that will support research and educate on palliative care best practices. Our community’s continued support is a testament to the kindness and compassion of its’ residents and community leaders.
Like its name sake, Galalicious served up sumptuous food and was hosted by John Catucci, former host of Food Networks “You Gotta Eat Here”, who entertained the captivated crowd.
Special thanks to the evening’s presenting sponsor, The Carpenters’ Union, for their generous support of Galalicious 2018 and the journey to providing a new Hospice Vaughan residential facility.
