Our Fundraising Gala is Back!

Good Samaritan Home will hold our annual fundraising gala, themed “Stars & Sapphires” Friday, September 30th at The Corinthian Event Center in downtown Quincy. This will be our first gala since 2018 due to complications from Covid.

The evening will feature dinner, drinks, a silent auction, a wine pull, caricature artist, and LIVE music from the exceptional local band Raised on Radio!

Funds raised from the event will benefit the Good Samaritan Home Foundation, which financially supports our home and our mission of compassionate, Christian care, in a charitable community. The gala also celebrates our 65th anniversary in our community.

Donations and/or reserved seats for the occasion can be purchased at givebutter.com/65thgala or by calling 217-223-8717.

REMINDER!

Cottagers and guests are allowed to join in activities and meals beginning Monday, September 12th! Let me be the first to say, WELCOME BACK! Don’t forget, you must screen at the main entrance when entering, and masks are mandatory when not eating at your table.
