Greenspring Hosts Over Two Hundred Residents and Guests at 15th Annual Charity Gala

 

             (Springfield, Va.) – On Friday, September 19, more than 200 guests and residents attended the 15th annual Benevolent Care Fund Gala at Greenspring retirement community—a sold out event for the fifth consecutive year!

            The gala is a Greenspring charity event organized each year to raise money for the community’s Benevolent Care Fund.  The fund provides support to residents who, despite careful planning, outlive their financial resources.  The money raised allows residents to continue living at Greenspring, receiving the care that they need.

           “With your help, we are pleased to make Greenspring home for life for all of our residents and extend this amazing lifestyle to our recipients,” said Jean Landreville, Greenspring’s Executive Director.  “Our residents who benefit from this fund have lived in our community for many years.”

            This year, the gala featured cuisine and entertainment inspired by French culture with an overall theme of “Paris Awaits”.  Guests and residents were treated to entertainment by a strolling French mime, a pianist, a vocalist, caricaturists, and The String Angels, the world’s leading Electric String Trio direct from New York!  A four-course meal delighted taste buds all around; selections from the menu included lobster bisque, frisse with duck confit, seared turbot in a peach beurre blanc, eggplant with fresh mozzarella, and a French dessert trio inclusive of napoleon, profiteroles, and éclair.

            Very special thanks to the generous Benevolent Care Fund sponsors including the Greenspring Treasure Chest, The Davis Family Foundation, Cypress Contracting, LLC, Positive General Contractors, Inc., NovaGold, LLC, and many more!
