“Carve for a Cause” event

Halloween Fundraiser has been spearheaded by the Fernie Real Estate Company.

Elk Valley Hospice is thrilled to have been designated as the charity of choice for a fun upcoming community event. “Carve for a Cause” Halloween Fundraiser has been spearheaded by the Fernie Real Estate Company. Pumpkins are available for purchase from the Fernie Real Estate Company office located on the highway on the east side of town to then be carved by individuals or businesses. Once carved, judging and awards will take place Oct. 27 at 6 p.m. at the Fernie Real Estate company office. Half of the money raised from pumpkin sales, will be donated to Elk Valley Hospice and the other half will be donated to an approved charity or non-profit of the winner’s choice.

Stephanie Rogers glass artist and long-time Elk Valley Hospice volunteer is working on her pumpkin design as we speak. As a little added bit of fun, she has come up with the idea of auctioning her masterful pumpkin art work to the highest bidder in a silent auction. Stephanie’s pumpkin will be displayed in her downtown studio for all to admire and bid on. Half of the proceeds for the pumpkin auction will also be donated to Elk Valley Hospice and half to the charity of choice of the highest bidder.  Silent auction bidding will start Wednesday Sept. 26. The highest bidder for Stephanie’s “master carving” can pick up their pumpkin at her studio on Oct. 29 at 3 p.m. when the auction closes. Remember to keep checking back to ensure you have the highest bid.
