The Waterford Annual Alzheimer Society Coffee Break Fundraiser!

On Saturday Oct. 7th, we kicked off our Annual Alzheimer Society Coffee Break Campaign.  We held our event at 2:30 pm in the Saint Lawrence Lounge with Music by “The Trott Brothers”, coffee and treats, our annual gift basket draw and of course our silent auction and a brand new addition to the day was our ” New To You Jewelry Boutique”.   Every year our Silent Auction items feature some hand maid or crafted items by staff and residents. This year Beatrice Groves, donated a wonderful work of art to the cause and the highest bid on that piece was $110!!  We also had a very unique piece in our collection, the Windsong ladies were given a lovely table to give a makeover to and they truly succeeded and this hand painted accent table raised $115. Thank you to the Zlepnig family for their very generous donation of $1000 in support of this fundraising venture.  There are still some donations coming in but currently our total is $2200.00.  This amount may qualify us for the Annual Coffee Break Trophy – which is awarded to the  community with the largest amount of donations. Thank you to all for your support of this cause very close to our hearts — thank you for making your coffee count!
