The Hospice Society of the Columbia Valley is so excited to announce the 6th Annual Butterfly Gala taking place on Saturday, April 28th at the Radium Course. This year’s Gala is extra special as we also celebrate 5 years of wonderful hospice visitors in action! In celebration of this milestone the Rocky Mountaineer has generously donated two Silver Leaf tickets for an amazing luxury train adventure in the Canadian Rockies. For more information check out

Dress in your finest mountain elegant attire and come out to support the Hospice Society. You will enjoy an evening of great food, amazing auction items and fantastic entertainment. Purchase a table of 8 and host your guests while your table competes for first choice in the decadent Dessert Auction. The evening starts at 5 p.m. with a tasty 3 course meal and acoustic guitar music. Following is the auction, mingling and dancing to the Chisel Peak Blues Band. Open your hearts to hospice and open your wallets to win as you “toss a toonie” or bid on awesome adventures and interesting items in the Live, Silent and Bucket List auctions.

We are grateful to all of our sponsors; including Radium Golf Group and their fantastic venue, Kootenay Savings Credit Union, Wolfe Mining Inc. and Century 21 Rockies Realty Ltd. Thank you to all businesses and donors; big and small, who chose to generously support this special annual event in the valley. Funds raised help support the Hospice Society of the Columbia Valley; together we have provided over 2,774 visits in the last 5 years. The Hospice Society resource centre has been providing a comfortable work space and family meeting area for the last 3 years. We have expanded with a lending library and now offer support for the bereaved. If you or someone you know needs our assistance, please call 250-688-1143.

Tickets for the Gala are $50 and can be purchased in Radium at the Big Horn Café, in Invermere at Sobeys, and in Fairmont at Purple Cow Gifts.

This April 28th, gather your friends and family and join us at the 6th Annual Butterfly Gala to support the Hospice Society of the Columbia Valley. This a great way to support your community and enjoy a fun evening out!
