Last weekend, the Harvesting Hope for Hospice Quinte Charity Car Rally and Artisan Market, presented by Tara Lyons Royal Lepage Proliance, raised over $25,700 in support of local hospice palliative care services. More than 200 people turned out for the event that was held Saturday, September 24th at Grills Orchards with all proceeds going to Hospice Quinte’s ‘The Comfort of Home’ annual fundraising campaign.

Over 100 golfers took part in the event at Timber Ridge Golf Course in Brighton, with all proceeds benefitting Hospice Quinte’s The Comfort of Home annual fundraising campaign.
