We hope you join us for this year’s gala, “An Evening On The Rhine.” We chose this theme to pay tribute to our German heritage during the 125th Anniversary year of the founding of our Home. Our gala is our major fundraising event to raise money for the Benevolent Care Fund at PPh. This fund allows the older adults who reside at PPh to continue receiving quality healthcare if they are no longer able to afford the costs on their own.
As older adults live longer, they face increasing costs for their care accompanied by decreasing resources. Many will encounter a financial hardship during a time in life they are also the most vulnerable. In 2014, PPh was able to provide $407,693 in benevolent care and an estimated $1,078,606 in under-compensated medical assistance to our residents. Our gala last year raised nearly $70,000 with 100 percent of the proceeds directly helping PPh residents in financial need. It is only because of generous and loyal donors that the seniors in need who have come to call PPh their home will continue to remain independent while aging with dignity and grace.
Please help us continue to make a difference by supporting our “An Evening On The Rhine Gala.” This event will be held at Cannstatter Volksfest Verein on October 9, 2015. It will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a cocktail reception during which a silent auction filled with items that everyone will be sure to admire will run until 8:00 p.m. A sit down dinner will follow in the main ballroom with entertainment provided by the much loved band, Jellyroll. This annual event is enjoyed every year and is a great way to have a night out with friends and family while supporting a great cause!
