2019 JKV Gala

Raisin' Moo-la for the Village Care Center

This Ain’t Our First Rodeo!

Come to the John Knox Village Gala where y’all will two-step to the fresh sounds of Michael Dale and the Hired Guns while enjoying some tasty grub. With your help, we hope to raise a passel of loot and help the good folks at the Village Care Center (VCC).

Last year’s generous sponsors and attendees helped us purchase a new ambulance and upgraded cardiac monitoring equipment. The proceeds from this year’s gala will be used to transform the dining experience of VCC patients with the purchase of new kitchen equipment and technology.  Transitioning from institutional, buffet-style with limited choices to a dining program that allows for custom made-to-order meals will richly enhance each patient’s dining experience.

Each year, about 1,000 patients from the surrounding community spend a few weeks in the VCC for post-surgery rehabilitation and about 200 permanently live in long-term care.  It is vitally important to preserve their dignity and enhance their experience by offering a great selection of healthy, nutritious food choices.  For our highly vulnerable seniors living in the VCC, daily meal time is a very important event because if offers a regular and cherished opportunity to socialize with friends.
