In Pennsylvania, our Foundation events make news!
Presbyterian SeniorCare Foundation hosts two annual signature events. The annual Your Holiday Home Event is a festive start to the holiday season for our friends and supporters in Washington County. Our annual Golf Outing, set at the historic Oakmont Country Club is a perennial sell-out event.

Tuesday Table Ladies
Check out this creative way some of our Longwood at Oakmont residents are helping us to raise funds for benevolent care.
Eight Longwood at Oakmont Residents Co-author Mystery Novel
As the Tuesday Table Ladies gathered for dinner one evening, a question arose.
“Where’s Muriel?” one of the women asked. That sounds like the title of a mystery, mused Doreen Boyce, the former head of the Buhl Foundation.
Eventually, Muriel Weeks, former executive director of the Westmoreland County Mental Health Association, appeared. But this incident prompted her and seven other women in the group to write a mystery.
The eight live in Longwood at Oakmont, a retirement community. So they decided to set their first book — “Where’s Laura?” — in Oakwood, a mythical retirement community located in a historic Maryland mansion.
Proceeds from the book’s sales will benefit the Longwood Benevolent Fund of Presbyterian SeniorCare, which aids older people who have outlived their money.

Your Holiday Home
The annual Your Holiday Home event on Saturday morning November 12th featured laughter, fun and fellowship as mothers and daughters, girlfriends and business colleagues from throughout Washington gathered to kick off their holiday season and show support for the SeniorCARE FUND in Washington. The SeniorCare FUND provides benevolent care for residents who no longer have sufficient resources to pay for their care.
This year, the event was held at the Hilton Garden Inn, Southpointe. We filled the room with over 350 guests! It was fantastic to see the Washington community rally around our organization! Guests were entertained with a breakfast buffet, a massive gift and basket raffle and holiday presentations.
Special thanks to the Your Holiday Home committee, community volunteers from throughout the Washington area who help to plan this special day. Front, L to R: Connie Simon, Christine O’Brien, Betty Courson, Betty Robinson and Gayle March.

The Silver Factory Experience
Sparkly silver outfits. Disco lights. Go-go boots. Wigs and funky frames. You may think we’re talking about a movie from the 1970s, but we’re not – we’re talking about The Silver Factory Experience and about celebrating a milestone in our history. On November 5, we danced and celebrated 25 years of excellence in dementia care, marking the silver anniversary of the opening of our revolutionary Woodside Place dementia-specific personal care community on our Oakmont campus.
The evening captured the same spirit of innovation and personalization as Warhol and his Silver Factory regulars in the 70s. For those of you who were at the event, we cannot thank you enough for your enthusiasm and support. Whether you grooved on the dance floor or were a social butterfly – you made the scene, and made the evening special!
At the event, we presented awards to individuals and organizations who have helped to enhance the lives of older adults. Take a few moments to watch the awardee videos - you're sure to be inspired!

Annual Golf Outing at Oakmont Country Club
On May 3, 2016, the 21st Annual Golf Outing featured an excited field of golfers at the historic Oakmont Country Club, located next door to our Presbyterian SeniorCare Network Oakmont campus. Beautiful weather greeted the players who took on the challenging Oakmont course, site of the 2016 U.S. Open championship. Residents, family members and employees volunteered their time to help with the event.
