Raising Funds for the Benevolent Care Fund
St. Andrew's Charitable Foundation ensures that financially struggling St. Andrew's residents won't have to say goodbye to their friends, their community - their home. Instead, we provide financial assistance through the Benevolent Fund to bridge the gap so that they may enjoy their remaining time with peace of mind and comfort.
On June 2nd, nearly 200 guests attended our Celebrate Summer event to raise funds for seniors-in-need at Brooking Park. Friends and family gathered on the patio at The Willows to enjoy BBQ, and FUN! Over $70,000 was rasied thanks to our Presenting Sponsors World Wide Technology and the Steward Family Foundation. "We make a living by what we get out of life. We make a life by what we give," says Dorothy Willis, member of the Steward Family.
Juanita Hartwig, Honorary Chairperson, personally contributed a $10,000 matching gift challenge to encourage additional support. "I strongly believe that you should contibute whatever and whenever you can. In the bible, it says 'To those who have been given much, much is expected,' so that's why I feel good when I give," shared Juanita.
The event was a huge success and led by a committee of outstanding individuals: Juanita Hartwig, Honorary Chair, Lonnie & Bill Aronson, Mariann Baker, Nancy Knowles, Ann Lazerson, Ted McClure, Barbara Prokop, Nancy Rosenstock, Renee Steffy and Dorothy Willis.
