2021 PPH Garden Party
2021 PPH Garden Party
The PPH Garden Party was held on Sept. 23, 2021, in appreciation of sponsors and donors who contributed $1,000 or more during the 2020 calendar year.
Contributions supported the campus-wide Wi-Fi project, Benevolent Care, and other areas of need associated with pandemic relief efforts. The event was slated to be held outdoors in the PPH Arts, Culture, and Education (ACE) Center Courtyard and surrounding gardens, but due to inclement weather, was moved inside to the adjacent private dining room, Bistro, and Fountain Room.
During the reception, guests enjoyed butlered hors d’oeuvres, pasta and crudité stations, an open bar, and an assortment of desserts. Top-quality display screens and audio were located throughout the spaces to allow guests in any area to comfortably see and hear the evening’s speaker program and awards ceremony.
The program included brief remarks from John Dubyk, PPH President and CEO, who spoke about our community’s appreciation for, and the value of, the contributions of our generous supporters. John’s remarks were followed by the awards ceremony. The awards included the PPH Donor Appreciation Award, which honors a donor who embodies a culture of benevolence, and the PPH Community Leadership and Service Award, which honors a partner in our community who shares our values and whose leadership serves the needs of others.
The premiere of “Family Means…” a video testimonial that highlighted the connections between residents and employees and their links to the time-honored mission of PPH, culminated in a successful and enjoyable event.
