Havana Nights!

Posted on: Aug 21, 2016

Part of the PPh way is celebrating the diversity that makes our family unique. The celebration will continue on September 30 at Havana Nights, the 11th annual Gala presented by Select Rehabilitation & Temple Health Jeanes Hospital and Temple Physicians, Inc. This year’s Havana Nights theme will serve as homage to the Spanish influence of one of the oldest islands in the Caribbean, Cuba and its historic and colorful capital city. The gala is our largest fundraising event and this year will be no different. All of the proceeds from ticket sales, raffles, sponsorships, and donations will go to the Benevolent Care Fund. The Benevolent Care Fund supports our residents who have outlived their financial resources and are no longer able to afford the cost of their care. Last year’s gala raised almost $70,000 and we are excited to attempt to eclipse that mark this year.The evening’s festivities will be held at Cannstatter Volksfest Verein and will kickoff with a welcome cocktail reception and silent auction from 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. The second half of the night features a sit down dinner, PhotoBooth, raffle prizes, and great music from the Chatterband. We thank those who have continually invested in the PPh mission and look forward to your support for Havana Nights!

What Residents Say

"In my nine years at PPH, I’ve grown to like it very much. At first, I felt like a stranger and then as I began to talk to people, we increasingly became good friends. A way to meet people is to join clubs. I’m now part of the PPH Auxiliary. I love helping with their flea markets because you never know what you can find. Recently, I’ve joined an evening quilting class. I love that I can continue to enjoy my life outside of PPH while experiencing the offers here.…especially the pool! Everything is just so convenient.

– Lucille Hite, Independent Living resident

What Families Say

"My mom is sooo happy at PPH, I can’t even describe it in strong enough words. She’s met so many new friends and these ladies do EVERYTHING together! She sees Dad every day in Pathways, but can have her life too. She’s gone to so many activities and I think I’ve already been to Scoops with her at least 15 times. She loves the dining room and Bistro too. My sister, Ilene, and I are so delighted that Mom is happy.......Wow, it feels like Mom’s been there about 2 years—but it’s only 2 months!! That’s how comfortable and natural it feels for her – and for all of us.

– Rhonda Frenkel, daughter of resident Bernice Segal
