"Each year the Gala brings together both people who live and work at Linden Ponds with our supporting vendors and local community members," said Mairi Bleakie, Philanthropy Manager, Linden Ponds. "From a sit-down dinner, to a live auction and entertainment from the Winiker Band, everyone dances the night away! This event really showcases how wonderful it is to both live and work at Linden Ponds."
Menu items were named after famous musicians;
Ella Fitzgerald Boston Lettuce, Endive, Avocado, Toasted Pecans, and Goat Cheese, with Dried Cranberries and Citrus Vinaigrette

"The Gala Committee made up of residents and staff work very hard to put this event together every year," said Bleakie. "I can't thank them enough for all their help."
More than $50,000 was raised at the event this year. Proceeds from the Linden Ponds Gala benefit the Resident Care Fund which is a Fund set up to provide support to residents who, despite careful planning, outlive their financial resources. This Fund enables residents to remain at Linden Ponds, knowing they will always receive the care they deserve
