Dinner and beverages are included in the ticket price.
“The Wesley Foundation Gala is a key event to raise funds for the essential programming for the residents and will certainly make a difference in the lives of those that call Wesley Health Care Center home,” said Wesley Foundation gala honorary co-chair Stephanie Collins.
“We are honored to be a part of this annual celebration and look forward to a fun, festive evening to support the mission of The Wesley Community,” shared Wesley Foundation gala honorary co-chair Dave Collins.
Founded in 1972, The Wesley Community was established as a long-term senior care facility and has steadily grown into a continuum-of-care campus featuring independent and assisted living apartments, compassionate skilled nursing and memory care services.
“As we enter our sixth decade of providing exceptional care for our community’s seniors, The Wesley Community is excited to celebrate our rich history and bright future with this gala event,” said The Wesley Community CEO J. Brian Nealon. “The proceeds from this Enchanted Evening will allow us to continue to provide unique, personalized programming that enhances the lives of our residents and makes our organization truly special.”
