Thanks to another successful fundraiser, custom cabinets will soon be built at Heron Grove.
Recreational coordinator Chris Smith said with 90 tickets sold, a popular silent auction and generous supporters, the recent event was a huge success, raising $7,000 to build custom cabinet sets in the entertaining environment rooms.
“These cabinets are designed to house recreational equipment specifically for dementia care and complex care cottages and the residents who reside within,” said Smith. “The night was an elegant affair, with volunteers bringing appetizers around on silver plates to our hungry guests, a volunteer harpist playing in the background, and white linens with yellow runners and chair ties filling out the space. Fun was had by all.
“Heron Grove’s fundraising committee would like to thank all the table sponsors, silent auction donors and volunteers who helped leading up to the event and the evening of. Furthermore a special thanks to Lauren Cornish of Sysco, our food sponsor, as well as Phil Southward and the Southward Medical Supplies team for once again being our title sponsor of our event. Hope to see everyone back again next year.”
Operated by the Good Samaritan Society, Heron Grove offers seniors multiple levels of care and the ability to age in place. This campus of care includes the main building which houses the assisted and independent living suites; four 12-bed dementia care cottages and two 14-bed cognitively well residential care cottages.
