In 2014, all proceeds raised from the Bonspiel event went to support the Hope Starts Here campaign to help revolutionize how Palliative Care is provided at Providence Hospital. In 1999, this event first began following the exceptional care that Leslie’s mother received during her final days in Palliative Care at Providence. His family wanted to give back to help benefit other families. This is a wonderful opportunity for this community event to come full circle. Dollars raised will support a new, remodeled and home-like environment for patients and families to celebrate a life well-lived together.
