More than 200 people gathered at Silver Creek senior living community recently to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association in honor of the community’s first anniversary. The funds were raised through a silent auction that featured original artwork, donations from local health and wellness organizations, and gifts from local businesses. In total, the event raised more than $1500 for the Association’s Central and North Florida Chapter.
“We’ve had a remarkable year thanks to the extraordinary support of the community, local senior services, medical professionals and so many others. We were eager to show our gratitude for the wonderful reception we’ve received by giving back to the community,” said Sharon Benjamin, Executive Director at Silver Creek. “Alzheimer’s research is a cause that is very near and dear to our hearts, so it was only natural to use the occasion of our first anniversary to raise money for our local chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.”
The anniversary celebration also featured one of Silver Creek’s most popular amenities: chef-prepared, restaurant-style recipes.
“Silver Creek is designed to not only support but to celebrate our residents with an interesting and engaging lifestyle,” Benjamin continued. “Sharing healthy food made from local ingredients with friends, family and neighbors is just one example.”
Silver Creek senior living community opened last November to provide assisted living, memory care and short-term respite care with a focus on holistic wellness, person-centered care and life fulfillment. Silver Creek residents enjoy a wide range of amenities, including a multi-media center and movie theater, a creative arts studio, library with computer center, a fitness center, walking paths and a game room.<< News
