Motorcycle mania fuels Hospice raffle

Major fundraiser to help fulfill Hospice House dream

The Campbell River Hospice Society is going whole hog by holding a raffle for a brand new motorcycle, besides other prizes.

This summer the society is holding a major raffle for three top prizes of:

1st prize – 2011 Suzuki Boulevard C50T (VL800) Motorcycle (sponsored by Boatland);.
2nd prize – 58” Samsung TV and BlueRay DVD Player (sponsored by Madman McKay);

3rd prize – 10” Single Beveled Miter Saw (sponsored by Quality Foods).

Starting Friday, April 15 until August 6, you will have an opportunity to purchase your raffle tickets, one for $10 or five for $20, through the Hospice Society’s office (301 Dogwood Street), at Boatland, or at Madman McKay’s.

The motorcycle is currently on display at Boatland (3125 North Island Highway) and it will also be on display at the Hospice Society’s 10th Annual Angel Rock Benefit and Dance on Saturday, May 7.  If you would like to purchase tickets for the raffle or attend Angel Rock, contact the Hospice Office.

More information on the Raffle and about Hospice can be found on their website:

All proceeds from the raffle and Angel Rock go back to the Society, assisting them to continue providing important services including their dream of making a Hospice House in Campbell River a reality.
