The Delta Hospice Society is grateful to community members that started their holiday shopping on Nov. 17 at Open Space Yoga's fourth annual Shopping Day for Charity.
Kicking off the holiday season, retailers set up shop inside the newly re-built Open Space Yoga studio on Delta Street and raised a grand total of just over $2,800 for the Delta Hospice Society.
Retailers included: Sonja Picard Jewelry, Potters for Hospice, The Upstart Crow, The Portal, Raintree Day Spa, Lyck Bodycare, Pebble Creations, Henna by Hini, Lara's Cuisine, It's All About The Yoga and Open Space Yoga Boutique.
Fifteen per cent of all sales were donated to the Delta Hospice Society, with the exception of Potters for Hospice, which donated 100 per cent of all pottery sales. Bombay Joe's and Lara's Cuisine were on hand offering shoppers food, dessert and refreshments.
"Thank you to Michael Rudd and his kind yogis from Open Space Yoga for creating such a welcoming shopping space," said Delta Hospice executive director Nancy Macey. "The combination of gifts, food and company that day were perfect; it was a really enjoyable day."
Open Space Yoga is a proud supporter of the Delta Hospice Society and hosts signature events each year: the Heart of Ladner Night Market, the Shopping Day for Charity and candle-light yoga classes. To date, Open Space Yoga has raised over $30,000 with the help of the community for patient care in Delta.
Open Space offers yoga for every level from beginner to advanced in the heart of Ladner Village.
