The Salvation Army ARC Auxiliary to Hold "A Mayfair Garden Party" Fundraiser
Annual Luncheon to Feature Michael Snowden as Special Guest Speaker
Cincinnati, OH (February 20, 2014) - The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) Auxiliary today announced plans for their upcoming fundraiser. The annual event, which benefits The Salvation Army's Adult Rehabilitation Center, will be held Thursday, May 1st, 2014. The event includes a silent auction, Kitchen Korner shop and luncheon. Special guest speaker for this year's luncheon is Mr. Michael Snowden, Director of the Hamilton County Emergency Management Agency (EMA)/Homeland Security. The event will be held at the Radisson Hotel in Covington, starting at 11:00 am. This year's theme is "A Mayfair Garden Party."
"It's an important fundraising event that supports our work with the men at the (Adult Rehabilitation) Center," stated Mary Davis, president of the Salvation Army ARC Auxiliary. "We enjoy working with the men in the program, and this event raises funds that allow us to enhance the experience for the men."
In more than five decades of service and support, the ARC Auxiliary has walked side-by-side with the men enrolled at the ARC, providing them with monthly birthday dinners, fellowship, encouragement, and gifts at Christmastime. Proceeds from the ARC Auxiliary's fundraising activities have been used to purchase blankets, curtains, washers & dryers and other goods to enhance the living conditions for the men in the ARC dorms.
"The Auxiliary group is such a blessing to us," stated Major Nancy Beauchamp, Administrator at the regional Salvation Army ARC. "We serve hundreds of men each year through our facility and programs, and the women of the Auxiliary help us immeasurably in this work. Thanks to their support, commitment and contributions, each man is better positioned to have a positive experience at the center."
"A Mayfair Garden Party" will feature a silent auction and Kitchen Korner shop starting at 11:00 am, followed by the luncheon at Noon and the guest speaker. Kitchen Korner includes an assortment of delicious, homemade items. Tickets for "A Mayfair Garden Party" are $40 per person ($20 of which is tax-deductible). For more information and to make reservations, please contact Jill Hoff @ email@example.com by April 24th, 2014. As always, men are welcome to join the ladies at this event.
