The Circle of Life Committee at Phoebe Allentown Health Care Center, 1925 Turner Street, will host their 16th Annual Basket Social in Moyer Hall from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 8, 2015 and from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Friday, October 9, 2015. Last year, the basket social raised over $11,000.
Over 100 themed gift baskets will be raffled with values of up to $100 or more. Tickets are 5 for $1.00 or 30 for $5.00. Food will be available for purchase.
The Basket Social provides funds to put Phoebe Allentown’s “Circle of Life” program into action in ways that make the Health Care Center more home-like. An integral part of this is Phoebe’s award-winning intergenerational program which includes activities like a summer day camp for children and grandchildren of staff, volunteers and residents. The “Circle of Life” at Phoebe Allentown also provides opportunities for residents to garden, volunteer, care for house plants, bake, and tend to live-in cats, birds and fish.
The event is free and open to the public. Please call 610-794-5126 or e-mail [email protected] for more information or to make a donation.
