McCormick Care Foundation Announces 2017 Ritz Fundraising Gala
Dinner and Silent Auction Raise Funds to Enhance Quality of Life for Residents of McCormick Home and Clients of McCormick Dementia Services
December 2, 2016
LONDON, ON – The Ritz, McCormick Care Foundation’s annual fundraising gala and silent auction, is taking place on Thursday, January 12, 2017.
Held at the London Convention Centre, the event includes a three-course gourmet dinner, wine, and complimentary underground parking. A cocktail reception and silent auction begin at 5:30 p.m. with dinner to follow. Tickets are $150 each and can be purchased online or by calling Lynne Ryckman, McCormick Care Foundation director, at 519-432-2648 ext. 2318.
“We truly value this opportunity to celebrate our valued supporters and to demonstrate in some small way how much their assistance has made a difference to those in our care,” says Lynne Ryckman, director of the McCormick Care Foundation.
This event also marks the first time the Ritz has been offered under the Foundation’s new name. Formerly known as the McCormick Home Foundation, the McCormick Care Foundation rebranded this past spring to reflect the new organizational identity introduced by their partner in care, the McCormick Care Group (formerly the Women’s Christian Association). Together, the Foundation and McCormick Care Group, the governing organization of McCormick Home, McCormick Dementia Services (formerly Alzheimer Outreach Services) and McCormick Dementia Research, are working toward a 2022 dementia leadership goal.
The McCormick Care Foundation is a charitable organization that was established in 1984. The Foundation supports enhanced life enrichment programs and activities for the residents of McCormick Home and McCormick Dementia Services, including art therapy, music therapy and day program subsidies for those in need. Through a variety of fundraising initiatives, the Foundation has contributed a cumulative total of more than $1 million in support of these two organizations.
The McCormick Care Foundation wishes to gratefully acknowledge presenting sponsor Medical Pharmacies Group Limited, entertainment sponsor Medical Priorities and reception sponsor Energy Place Property Management.
