On September 23, 2021, Phoebe held its long-awaited Phoebe Institue on Aging Generations Un-Gala: Twilight in Tuscany, presented by Citizens Bank, at the Folino Estate Vineyard and Winery in Kutztown, PA.
This much-anticipated event offered a new twist to our annual benefit dinner that raises funds for the Phoebe Institute on Aging (PIA), and provides scholarships and educational programs designed to address current-day needs and front-line solutions for health care professionals and caregivers.
More than 200 guests enjoyed a casual Tuscan-themed evening exploring the Folino Winery. Festivities included strolling music by the Dolcetto Trio, an array of Italian fare from antipasti to gelato, and a variety of “á-la-carte” Un-Gala experiences: including Bocce, Tuscan Toss, and an opportunity to sample a selection of Folino wines and sangrias. Guests also participated in our silent auction and sponsored “Give Back Baskets,” created to recognize Phoebe’s front-line workers, and baskets of art supplies and activities for residents at our personal care communities.
At the end of the Tuscan evening, Un-Gala guests, Phoebe Berks residents, and staff danced the Tarantella with castanets and tambourines in hand to the music of the Lehigh Valley Italian-American Band.
At this year’s Un-Gala, Phoebe honored the 2020 recipients of the Rev. Dr. Grant Harrity Award for Exemplary Service to the Aging, Mitch and Jami Possinger, and the 2021 recipients, Bob and Judy Miller. The Harrity Award is presented to individuals whose leadership, service, and commitment advance the aging services field. We are honored to recognize these individuals who advocate for and effect positive change in the lives of older adults and their caregivers.
Please take a moment to thank all of the sponsors of the 2021 Un-Gala.
