November 16, 2018 : Toast Our Golden Years
On behalf of the residents of Luther Home, thank you to everyone who supported our November 16, 2018 “Toast Our Golden Years” fundraising event. Thank you to those who donated gifts for the silent auction, those who provided beverages for the tasting and food for enjoying, and those who gave us music and their volunteer time. This event was the beginning of our celebrations for 50 years of service.
The evening could not have happened without all of the above. The success of the evening has been measured by the number in attendance, the positive feedback and by the funds raised to support our Personal Care Home.
Thank you again for being a part of our evening.
