2021 PPH Garden Party Sponsor & Donor Appreciation Reception

2021 PPH Garden Party in Appreciation of Sponsors & Donors

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 Strengthening Connections the Campaign for Campus-Wide Wi-Fi, 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.

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
