This Wednesday, May 13th, the Presbyterian Village is hosting their annual Good Samaritan Auction and Dinner. The Village is a wonderful, not for profit independent and assisted living community that provides excellence in service guided by Christian values.
Part of the Good Samaritan program provides assistance for seniors that have outlived their financial resources and allows them to continue to receive services at the Village. This is only made possible by generous donations and the Village’s once a year fundraiser: dinner and auction.
