OH! WHAT A NIGHT

 

Our first-ever fundraising Gala was held on April 14 at the Carolina Ballroom in Pinckney Hall. The Black ‘n White themed event brought out Sun City residents in everything from formal to smart casual black and white attire and their best dancing shoes. Amazing entertainment was provided by THE VISTAS, a well-known group from Charleston, who really know how to create a buzz. Our own Sun City Car Club arranged for an array of classic black and white autos at the entrance for some stunning photo ops. A delicious buffet by Jameson’s Charhouse, consisting of carved pork loins and grilled salmon, was enjoyed by all.

 

Of course, any event like this cannot happen without the support of generous sponsors. A huge thank you to Integrity Home Care (www.integrityhomecaresc.com) for their generous support and Encompass Healthcare Hospital of Bluffton (www.encompasshealth.com/blufftonrehab), who provided a most spectacular dessert display. Many opted to eat dessert before dinner! Many thanks as well to Memory Matters, Prestige Heating and Air Conditioning, Sprenger Healthcare, Crescent Hospice, Keith Funeral Home, and the generous “Friends of Staying Connected” who also supported this event. 

 

This event raised over $7000 and benefits our efforts to assist our members facing unexpected life challenges. We could not do it without you. THANK YOU!
