Join us May 4-11 for the 2024 Hike for Hospice.

Volunteers Needed for Powtown Shakedown!

A message from our President:

For those who haven’t heard, Powtown Shakedown is a music festival being held at Palm Beach from July 29th to August 1st.  This year the organizers have generously set this up so that admission on the Friday is strictly by donation to Powell River Hospice Society, to go towards the building fund for our much anticipated Hospice House.  They will also be encouraging donations to Hospice over the course of the weekend.  In exchange, the organizers require volunteers for the gate.

This volunteer opportunity involves collecting donations, writing receipts as needed and sharing information about Hospice throughout the weekend.  We’ll provide everything you need, including a list of talking points.  Tickets for July 30th to August 1st will mostly be purchased online, though you will be selling them at the gate for anyone who hasn’t purchased ahead.  Again, training will be provided.  

I encourage you to sign up with a friend or family member, even if they aren’t tied to Hospice, so that all our spots are filled and you have company while you’re there.  All are welcome and carpooling with your shift buddy is encouraged.  By volunteering, you’ll be able to listen to the music while you’re on the gate, as well as attend the festival when you’re not volunteering!  This has the possibility of being a major fundraiser for Hospice and will take all of us working together, so thank you very much for volunteering your time to help out.

If you’re able to, please sign up for a shift at https://signup.com/go/oxiwnek

For more information on the event itself, please go to https://powtownshakedown.ca/.  If you have any questions, please contact Cathy Fisher at president@prhospice.org.

Thank you for your ongoing commitment to and support of Powell River Hospice Society and for volunteering your time to help your organization.

Cathy Fisher, President
