Dinner held for legacy donors to Seacrest Village Retirement Communities

ENCINITAS, California (Press Release)– Members of Seacrest Foundation’s Legacy of Promise program gathered on May 27, 2010 for an intimate evening of appreciation and gourmet fare in the newly remodeled Mel’s Place at the Seacrest Village Encinitas Campus. The Legacy of Promise provides donors the opportunity to secure the future for the residents of Seacrest Village Retirement Communities while meeting their own philanthropic goals.

The evening began with a cocktail hour on the terrace and moved inside to the beautiful new Mel’s Place café for a delicious four-course meal prepared by the culinary team at Seacrest. Sylvia Geffen, President of the Seacrest Foundation Board, spoke on behalf of the Foundation thanking the generous Legacy of Promise donors for their commitment to ensuring the quality of life for our community’s seniors well into the future. Each guest was presented with a beautiful pin designed just for them. Bob Haimsohn, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, and Pam Ferris, CEO of Seacrest Village, welcomed guests as well and provided a State of the Homes update. Other guests included Michael Berlin, Howard Brotman & Mamie Sorokin, Ellen & Ingram Chodorow, Betty & Melvin Cohn, Esther & Bud Fischer, Merrill Haimsohn, Joyce & Jere Oren, Jane Ottenstein, Linda & Shearn Platt, Jeannie & Arthur Rivkin, Milton Roberts and Paul Roberts.

Jane Ottenstein, touched by the evening, said a few words thanking the other attendees for understanding the importance of planned giving and for sharing in her love for Seacrest Village. She expressed joy in the building of the new Ottenstein Vitality Center which will further enhance the lives of seniors living at Seacrest Village. Guests Jere Oren and Shearn Platt were also moved to say a few words thanking the wonderful staff at Seacrest Village for providing such outstanding care for the residents.

The purpose of Seacrest Foundation is to support Seacrest Village Retirement Communities in its service to the elderly. The Foundation and Seacrest Village Retirement Communities are working together diligently to raise the necessary funds to meet the needs of our growing senior community.

As a non-profit, charitable organization, Seacrest Village provides housing and healthcare services for the community’s elderly. Because Seacrest Village strives to provide these services regardless of one’s ability to pay, an annual shortfall of over $1.3 million must be met through fundraising. Each year Seacrest Village Retirement Communities serves almost four hundred seniors between the Encinitas and Rancho Bernardo campuses.
