Labyrinth fundraiser planned for Hospice House

The Bellingham Business Journal

The public is invited to participate in a Labyrinth Vigil at Whatcom Hospice House on Aug. 21, 2010, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The event, hosted by Karen Ssebanakitta, director of Whatcom Hospice, and Myra Smith, owner of The Laughing Flower Labyrinth & Landscape Co., will be held at the site of the new Hospice House opening this fall at 2806 Douglas Ave.

A suggested donation of $10 per person is fully tax-deductible and will directly benefit the Hospice House fundraising campaign. Smith will be available to teach labyrinth walking methods.

“I will be forever grateful to Whatcom Hospice for helping me care for my uncle in our home,” Smith said. “Thanks to Hospice, his last months of life were spent at home with our family instead of alone in a hospital. The memories and moments we shared are priceless, so I am honored to create a labyrinth fundraising event for Whatcom Hospice House.”

  1. Thank you to Myra Smith for her invitation to the HarpSpirit Labyrinth Harpers who will bring their colorful lap harps to offer deeply meditative music in support of those who walk and contemplate the gift of the Whatcom Hospice House to our community. We will play for approximately 30 min. soon after 7pm. Generous donations from proceeds of the On Wings of a Dove CD will be donated to the Whatcom Hospice House. For more information, visit .
