LUYL Online Auction
Welcome to all of our Light Up Your Life Society Supporters:
(In support of Palliative/Hospice & Continuing Care in the Tri-Community Area providing funding to Westview HC Continuing Care & Hospice as well as the three Good Samaritan facilities in Stony Plain and Spruce Grove.)
We would sincerely appreciate you taking the time to view our Online Auction which has a variety of items which we hope will be of interest to you.
We thank you for sharing this information, auction link/QR code, and the attached poster in your particular newsletters and with friends, family and co-workers.
The “go-live” date is November 14th and the auction concludes on Nov. 27th
The LUYL Society’s 2022 Campaign Goal is $100,000. All funds raised in the Online Auction will be included in the annual campaign which runs from Nov. 1 – Dec. 31
We are so pleased to share with you that in 2021 our goal was $75,000 … Amazingly, and with unbelievable community support we raised $137,000!!
The Society is 100% volunteer-run, and as such on average 97% of what is raised each year is used to directly benefit those in need in our own communities.
This year we celebrate our 30th Anniversary … and at this time we joyfully share with you the exciting news that the LUYL Society will be funding a structural addition to Westview HOSPICE. Since Hospice opened in July, 2014 to the end of April, 2022 over 600 people have called our Hospice “HOME”.
We are collaborating with, and supported by, AHS Capital Management who are acting in the capacity of Project Manager, but with the involvement and input of the LUYL Society and Westview Administration in every aspect of the project.
The addition will include a Kitchenette, Bathroom, Family Sleep Room, Communal Family Room and a Solarium/Quiet Room, and is estimated to cost $550,000. The Society currently already holds close to half of that amount in trust for the project.
This addition will provide much needed space for families and friends to gather for meals and companionship and/or privacy and peaceful reflection. When spending extended periods of time with their loved one it will afford them the opportunity to rest and refresh themselves while remaining close. This enhancement to our hospice will bring it another step closer to not only providing exceptional care for the patients, but car and support for the families and close friends as well … this being an essential component of the palliative/hospice care philosophy. The LUYL Society believes in this philosophy and has done, and continues to do, all that we can to support the patients, families, friends and staff who care for those who call Hospice “Home” at the end of their lives.
THANK YOU for participating in our Online Auction, and helping us “reach for the stars” again this year … as we hopefully exceed our 2022 Goal.
