We have a GOLDEN announcement...

The countdown is on to the 4th annual Handbags for Hospice on October 27th, and we're excited to announce that the Golden Ticket Lottery is BACK, thanks to returning Golden Ticket Sponsor Industrial Contracting Solutions Inc. !✨⭐️

What is the Golden Ticket Lottery?
For a ticket price of $100, this is your chance to WIN YOUR CHOICE OF ONE LIVE AUCTION ITEM from the selection of FIVE live auction items (pictured below) each valued at $2000 (or more). WOW!

How does it work?
There are 100 Golden Tickets up for grabs at $100 each. On event night (Thursday, October 27th) a few minutes after 7:00pm we will draw the winning golden ticket, call the winner and they will select their prize. Ticket holders MUST be by their phone, ready to choose their item! If not, another ticket will be drawn. Once the winner chooses their item, it will then be eliminated from the Live Auction.
