Held at Granite Ridge Golf Club in Milton on February 15th the Valentine Dinner & Dance in support of Townsend Smith Foundation was organized by the Milton Knights of Columbus.
Daniel Varanelli has been the lead volunteer to spearhead the event each year with additional support provided by fellow knights, such as Kevin Guthrie and Michael O’Gorman.
“Providing palliative care is consistent with our Christian belief that everyone deserves to live out their lives with dignity and comfort” said Varanelli explaining why the Knights choose Townsend Smith as their charity for this event. The Foundation’s mission is to establish and maintain a residential hospice in Milton to serve the needs of the terminally ill and their families.
John Barrett, Chair of the Board at Townsend Smith Foundation was in attendance and spoke eloquently about the real need for a Hospice in Milton. “It’s been said a community without a hospice is like a body without a heart” said Barrett.
Guests were served with a full 4 course dinner with wine, music, silent auction as well as door prizes.
