2023 Emerald Evening Raises Benevolent Care Funds

The final figures are in from our annual Emerald Evening held on Friday, Sept. 29th! This is Lutheran Community at Telford’s premier fundraising event, and the theme for 2023 was “Swinging Sixties.” 

This year, we welcomed 165 attendees including residents, staff, friends, board members and sponsors. The event featured a silent auction and 12 raffle baskets contributed by departments at Lutheran Community at Telford (LCT), with the Halloween-themed bundle by Maintenance being the highest bid item. 

Along with a buffet dinner, guests received a chip voucher at check-in to play casino-style games including blackjack and roulette. Lucky winners could earn more chips while others were able to purchase additional chips. Throughout the night, all chips were cashed in for raffle tickets among bidding on the separate silent auction items.
