Residents and guests tuck into some sweet treats at the Decadent Dessert Fundraiser at Heron Grove earlier this month. A silent auction also helped to raise funds for the Raise the Roof Campaign.

Fundraiser is a sweet success

Heron Grove holds third annual Decadent Dessert Fundraiser and brings in the funds it needs for its Raise the Roof Campaign

Thanks to tables filled with sweet treats, The Good Samaritan Society’s Heron Grove’s third annual Decadent Dessert Fundraiser Sept. 12 was a smashing success.

The wonderful affair was a smashing success. More than $14,000 was raised, the most of any event, for Heron Grove’s Raise the Roof Campaign. This monumental achievement was aided by many generous donors including one anonymous donation of $10,000.

The project’s goal has been met, thanks to dedicated sponsors, including title sponsor, Phil Southward of Southward Medical Supplies, attendees, volunteers, community members and, of course, the residents and staff at Heron Grove.

Thank you for dedicating your time and generosity to such a worthy cause.
