The great Canadian bucket list is the theme for the Prince George Hospice Society's annual gala that takes place Saturday at the Civic Centre.

The gala was created to emphasize that people should live with purpose by creating their own bucket list.

"At hospice, we regularly see and hear the conversations of 'I wish I would have,' 'I should have taken the time to,' 'I really wanted to but now it's too late,'" Donna Flood, executive director, for the Prince George Hospice Society, said. "We want to take our experiences and help others in the community live their lives to the fullest by creating a bucket list and accomplishing the items on it."

As a grand prize for a draw at the gala, the local hospice society will offer the winner $5,000 in cash towards their bucket list wish or fulfill the wish.

Tickets are $90 each plus service charges and are available at www.eventbrite.com.
