This year’s theme was Light of Love, as the gala took place just a few days after Valentine’s Day. Guest enjoyed theme appetizers and desserts based on classic romantic movie titles, such as Breakfast at Tiffany’s, The Lady and the Tramp, When Harry Met Sally, etc. Guest also had the option to purchase a sweetheart table for a romantic date night which included a red rose, box of heart shaped chocolate, and a private table. Toward the end of the night, the guests were able to big during the live auction on date night prizes as well as vacations, auctioneered by Mark Roberts.
All of the attendees enjoyed the food until it was time for the formal presentations and announcement of the winners. Whispering Pines Gracious Retirement Living won the Peoples’ Choice Award and Atria Senior Living won the Silver Spoon awarded by professional chef judges.
After the winners were announced, a Live Auction took place.
After 7 years of La Cosa Bella planning and coordinating the Share to Care Gala, it is wonderful to see the growth of the organization as well as the event. The Transitions Guiding Lights Caregiver Support Center is an amazing organization that helps many people and we are so glad to have been able to work with them over the years!
