The annual Golf for Hospice was another huge success. The event took place at Barrie Country Club and is always sold out.
Hospice Simcoe provides high-quality palliative and end-of-life care for individuals in Simcoe County and supports their family members.
Hospice Simcoe has been providing in-home Visiting Hospice and Grief & Bereavement support programs to people in Simcoe County since 1988.
The services were expanded in 2009 when they opened a 10-bed residence in Barrie. Since then, they have provided quality end-of-life care to over 1,600 residents.
Hospice Simcoe does not charge for any of its services. They rely on our their fundraising events, donations from individuals, organizations and businesses who contribute memorial gifts, general donations and host third-party events for 50 per cent of its operating costs, or $1 million per year.
They host three signature fundraising events each year, including the annual golf tournament.
