Bike inspections and mini tune-ups, safety sessions and lessons are all part of a bike clinic and barbeque being hosted by The Bridge Hospice (TBH) healing cycle riding team.
Any hospice palliative care organization that wants to raise money through the annual Healing Cycle Ride in Mississauga can enter a team and TBH supporters are gearing up for the big event.
“One hundred per cent of the funds raised by our team will go directly to The Bridge Hospice,” said David Pollack, one of the cyclists who will be participating in the healing cycle ride which takes place June 23 in Mississauga.
The bike clinic at the Warkworth arena is one way they hope to raise sponsorship for the ride.
The Third Annual Bridge Hospice Golf Tournament took place on 21 July at Pine Ridge Golf Club, Warkworth. It was a perfect day for golf with 55 golfers taking part. Nearly 40 additional guests joined in on the evening festivities which included dinner, silent auction draws and prizes. Through the generosity of our participants, donors and sponsors the tournament raised more than $7,000!

Bev & Ross Roy orchestrated another fabulous fashion event at the Warkworth Centre for the Performing Arts. The sold out event took place on Fri and Sat Oct 21st and Oct 22nd, 2012.
There was an amazing variety of models and the clothing was supplied from several local Northumberland clothing stores – Trentmendous! from Warkworth and
Dragon Fly & Gina Boyd Boutique from Brighton. Many exciting brand names and wearable clothing for all occasions!
The audience was also entertained by the beautiful Lemmon Sisters and some very funny skits, a sort of Dolly Parton and Willy Nelson theme compliments of Bev Roy & Gerhardt Marzinski. There was much laughter and audience participation.
Behind the scenes, there were eight dressers helping with the many clothing changes. All in all it was an incredibly sophisticated and professional event. Numerous phone calls and emails of congratulations poured in after the event.
And best of all, there was $5000 raised for The Bridge Hospice. Many thanks to Bev and Ross Roy and all the people that helped put together this great event.
