Today the four Sea-to-Sky Rotary clubs; Squamish, Whistler, Whistler Millennium and Pemberton, proudly presented a cheque for $100,000 to the Squamish Hospice Society for the new Sea to Sky Community Hospice facility.. In recognition, one of the hospice rooms will be named the Rotary Room.
Accepting the presentation from the Rotary representatives, on the right, are Dr Judith Fothergill, and Mark MacKenzie from the Squamish Hospice Society.
In the background is the new Hospice facility under construction, which is planned to open within a few months.
This donation would not have been possible without the community and we are thankful for the support for this worthwhile and very needed project. The presentation is the culmination of a significant fundraising effort by each club: Rotary Club of Squamish -  Duck in a Truck lottery, Rotary Club of Whistler Millennium - Christmas tree sales & Santa projects, Rotary Club of Whistler - Jazz/Blues Night, and Rotary Club of Pemberton - Golf Tournament..
