HopeSpring Cancer Support Centre - Kitchener
Mark your calendars - dates for the 11th Annual HopeSpring Holiday Tour of Homes (formerly the HO HO HO Tour For Hope) have been booked! This year five (5) private homes, La Hacienda (1254 Union Street, Waterloo) and HopeSpring Cancer Support Centre (16 Andrew St. Unit 2 Kitchener) will be decked out for the holidays in style. The homes are professionally decorated by some of the best decorators and florists in the area, who donate their time, energy and skills to make this event one that sells out every year.
The Holiday Tour of Homes will take place Friday, November 9 and Saturday, November 10. Tickets will be available as of October 6 and this year the ticket price remains at $30. Tickets will be available at HopeSpring, or visit www.hopespring.ca
in late September to find a list of local retailers carrying tickets.
"It's a great way to get into the holiday spirit, get decorating and gift ideas, and support a worthwhile cause all at the same time. We have people coming back, who have attended the tour every year since it started. There are some who make a big event out of the evening, renting a limo and sharing it with a group of friends. It's great to see people having such a wonderful time all while knowing we're making a difference to our community", shared Marnie Magna, co-chair of the event.
All proceeds from the tour benefit HopeSpring Cancer Support Centre. Since 1995, people with cancer and their caregivers in Waterloo Region and the surrounding area have found inspiration, information, and empowerment at HopeSpring. HopeSpring's programs and services are confidential and free of charge. HopeSpring is a local not-for-profit organization funded entirely by community donations, without grants or support from the government or larger cancer-based organizations.
HopeSpring offers one-on-one and group peer support, free wigs and head coverings, gentle exercise programs, relaxation therapies such as reiki, therapeutic touch and reflexology.
