About Crossroads Hospice
For over 30 years, Crossroads Hospice has been providing palliative care support for terminally ill adults in the Tri-Cities, as well as grief and loss support programs for those who are grieving the loss of a loved one. This past year alone, over 815 hospice patients and their families and community clients, received support through Crossroads Hospice Society’s hospice residence and Crossroads Grief and Loss Support Centre.
With over 80 volunteers in our hospice and in our community, Crossroads provides life-affirming care for patients and their families to help them with emotional, physical and spiritual concerns that arise as end of life approaches.

Every year, Crossroads Hospice Society hosts a signature fundraising event, our Treasures of Christmas Gala, to raise the funds necessary to provide compassionate, quality care for people with life-limiting illness and grief support for our community.
2020 has been a year full of unexpected change and continued perseverance. Like you, we have worked hard to adapt in this ever-changing world. To ensure the safety of the communities we serve, we knew our signature event would have to look different this holiday season. We committed to create an amazing, interactive and safe event that our communities could enjoy from the comfort of their own homes.
We are excited to welcome you to our first ever, I’ll Be Home for Christmas Virtual Gala! On Saturday November 21st from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm, dress up in your best festive wear and join us online! The evening will include exciting entertainment, inspirational stories, a breathtaking mix of spectacular Christmas trees, an extensive online silent auction and a delicious dinner you can order delivered to your doorstep.
We have seen firsthand the amazing things that happen when caring communities come together to support an important cause. We are so grateful for your ongoing support and cannot wait to bring this stunning Virtual gala to our community.
The event will be LIVE via YouTube Live Stream! Ticket holders will receive the hyperlink by email on Friday November 20th, 2020
