70th Anniversary Benefit Dinner
October 24, 2014
The Board of Directors and the Auxiliary of Villa St. Francis will host a celebratory dinner to mark the 70th anniversary of the skilled nursing center located in Olathe, Kan., and sponsored by the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas. The benefit dinner is scheduled Friday, Oct. 24, 2014 at Church of the Ascension, Overland Park, Kan.
The theme of the event is based on words attributed to St. Francis of Assisi, patron of Villa St. Francis: “Do the necessary, do the possible and suddenly the impossible happens.” Proceeds from the benefit will go toward providing charitable care for the more than 50 percent of Villa St. Francis residents on Medicaid. Medicaid payments fall significantly short of allowing the skilled nursing facility to meet operating expenses.
The 70th Anniversary Benefit Dinner will begin with a social hour at 6 p.m. followed by a prime rib or salmon dinner prepared by the Church of the Ascension Knights of Columbus Council #10932. The evening will include special remarks by Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann. Alex Shum, violinist, Kansas City Symphony, will entertain guests. Members of the Driscoll School of Irish Dance will be featured performers. The evening will also include a silent art auction.
To make reservations or contribute to the event as a benefactor or for more information, contact Gloria Adams, 913-768-4323.
