Donations raised at the Winter Gala will help fund in-room upgrades in the oldest part of our Skilled Care Center. 

Raise your paddle by clicking the donation button above! 

Each complete room renovation is $7,000 and we have 42 rooms to upgrade. These upgrades include new flooring, lighting, hardware, paint and more.

Donations of $5,000 or more will allow us to purchase the new flooring, paint and window coverings for each room.

Donations between $750 – $2,500 can help purchase new touchless faucets, lighting, and shelving for each room for inside the rooms or to purchase much needed new wheelchairs or lift assist chairs for residents.

Donations between $25 – $500 make a significant difference too because every dollar matters. These gifts will go toward our overall goal.
