The Foundation for Senior Care has announced details for its 12th annual fall benefit, a major fundraising event for their various community services.
Fallbrook, Calif., September 27, 2017—
Day after day, the Foundation for Senior Care provides a number of meaningful services to seniors in the Fallbrook community—and once each year, it throws a gala event, formerly called Dinner with Docs, to raise funds, build awareness, and thank the community for their investment.
This year will mark the 12th annual fall benefit, with the theme of Prohibition. The event, which includes auctions, hors d’oeuvres and dinner, will be held on the evening of October 28. The gala will be held at The Vineyard at 1924 in Fallbrook, and tickets are on sale now.
Gangsters & Molls, A Prohibition Bash will be a trip back to the 1920’s & 30’s to an era of rebellion, ingenuity, and plain old-fashioned frivolity. A silent auction will begin the event, during this time appetizers and drinks will be served. Following the auction, gala guests will be ushered into a rustic barn where a magnificent dinner will await them. Special presentations and a live auction will also take place during the dinner service. Plans are in place for the new wheelchair-accessible van which was purchased as a result of fundraising from last year’s event to be on site.
Those who participate in the auction will have unique opportunities to win some truly remarkable packages. Some of the live auction items will include a one-week stay in a two-bedroom suite at the Tamarack Beach Resort, one week at a two-bedroom luxury Nicaraguan villa on the Pacific coast, a one-week African Safari, and a trip to Alaska to watch the start of Iditarod dog sled race. More than anything, though, the event will provide a chance for guests to support the good work being done by the Foundation for Senior Care.
“These services are not offered anywhere else in the community,” Rachel Mason, Executive Director said. “Last year we were able to meet an over 20% increased demand for our services—and that’s only possible through the generous support of our community. This gala will be an important night for us all to work toward a better future for Fallbrook’s senior population.”
A big goal of Gangsters & Molls is to raise funding for a new program launching this fall, Door-Through-Door, Hospital to Home (without going back!). With that said, proceeds will ultimately go to each of the Foundation’s core services— Senior Advocacy, Transportation, a Senior Computer Learning Center, and The Club, an adult day care that provides respite for seniors and caregivers alike.
“We invite anyone who supports our mission to join us for what promises to be a roaring good time,” Mason said.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.foundationforseniorcare.org or at 760-723-7570. Sponsorships are still available.
