There are several ways for residents of Orangeville and Caledon to support Bethell Hospice this month with the Bon Appetit event.
The fundraiser includes 11 different restaurants and cafes who donate a portion of their sales to the hospice foundation.
It’s a great way to support local businesses while supporting a vital nonprofit in the community that provides compassionate and respectful care for people with terminal or life-limiting illnesses.
“The Bon Appetit event is an engaging way for the community to support the locals, help keep the doors of Bethell Hospice open, and ensure that all programs and services are available at no cost to residents, patrons of the community and their families,” said Kelly Stronach. , head of fundraising at Bethell Hospice. “Every donation makes a meaningful difference that impacts many lives and brings comfort at a difficult time.”
For the month of September, Bluebird Café donates $1 from every pizza sold to the hospice.
Rustik Local Bistro is donating $2 for every grilled chicken sandwich served with fries or salad sold on its lunch menu for the duration of September.
Throughout the month, Wicked Shortbread is donating $5 with the purchase of each “Bethell Box,” which contains four butter pies, a dozen shortbread cookies, six bars, one empire cookie and three macaroons.
Today and tomorrow (September 8-9), Barely Vine Rail Co. is donating 100% of its Hummus Appetizer sales.
Outside Orangeville, Gather Café in Alton is donating $2 for every wood-fired margherita pizza sold in September and Tin Roof Café in Erin is donating 15% of every latte.
The Higher Ground Café in Belfountain is donating 20% of every chicken pesto sandwich sold this month and Airport Pizza in Caledon East is donating $5 for every garlic pizza sold.
Coywolf Coffee in Inglewood is donating $1 for every combination of drip coffee and chocolate chip cookies sold through September.
Caledon Hills Brewing Co. in Palgrave is donating 15% of every pretzel appetizer sold through September 15.
Finally, Spirit Tree Estate Cidery in Terracotta is donating 25% of its weekly pizza of the month sales for the entire month of September.
Bethell Hospice provides round-the-clock care in its residential hospice, located at 15835 McLaughlin Rd, Inglewood, as well as a variety of community programs for people still living in their homes.
All services are free and there is no charge to stay at the hospice or participate in community programs.
Every year, Bethell Hospice must raise $1.5 million to ensure all programs remain free of charge to residents, as funding from the Ontario Ministry of Health does not cover its entire budget.
