Keizer Chamber hosts fundraiser for local students
Avamere Court at Keizer, a senior living and nursing community in Keizer, Oregon, is an active member of the Keizer Chamber of Commerce. They have partnered with them several times for their Percy Event, a fundraiser that benefits local students during the Christmas season.
Avamere Court at Keizer donated a beach-themed basket this year, complete with an overnight stay at the Oregon coast, dinner for two, and other fun beach-themed items. The basket will be part of a virtual auction in September 2020 for the Percy Event.
Donations from the event will be used to buy gifts for local students in need during the holiday season.
More than just a fundraiser
Avamere Court at Keizer has teamed up with their memory care community, The Arbor at Keizer Court, and Signature Healthcare at Home, their home health partner, for this donation. Team members consider it a true honor to work for a company like Avamere that believes in giving back to their community.
Sue Horn, Director of Sales and Outreach, worked closely with independent living manager, Megan Neimeyer, on this donation. “I want to than Megan for her support with this endeavor,” noted Sue. “Without her dedication, we couldn’t have pulled this off!”
Sue was also thankful for the opportunity to present the basket donation to Corri Falardeau from the Keizer Chamber of Commerce, who is organizing the event.
