Redstone Presbyterian SeniorCare, a Christian non-profit provider of senior living communities throughout southwestern Pa., raised more than $59,000 for its Benevolent Care Fund during its annual Spirit of Giving Gala held on November 17 at the Greensburg Country Club.
More than 300 people attended the eventincluding Honorary Chair and Emcee, Bill Smitrovich. Smitrovich is a television and film actor best known for his work as the father on the television series, “Life Goes On.” More recently, he’s appeared in films such as TED, The Rum Diary, Seven Pounds and Iron Man. His mother-in-law is a resident at Redstone. “Redstone has a rich history of providing services to those entrusted in our care. Since our beginning, Redstone has had the ability to provide benevolent care to residents, who, through no fault of their own, could no longer pay for their care,” said John Dickson, president and CEO of Redstone Highlands. “Thanks to the generosity of donors in the greater communities we serve, we look forward to continuing this wonderful tradition as we continue to build our Benevolent Care Fund.” Guests were given the opportunity to participate in a live and silent auction and one lucky person received a trip for two to Scotland. Since its first Gala in 2002, more than $329,000 has been raised for the fund and approximately 65 residents across Redstone’s three campuses are currently receiving support.
