Building on last year’s successful campaign, The Jewish Housing Council Foundation, which supports Kobernick House, Anchin Pavilion and The Benderson Family Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, will sponsor its second annual Keeping the Dream Alive event on Monday, November 5th, 2012 at 7:30 pm at Michael’s on East in Sarasota.
Featuring a champagne and dessert reception followed by an exclusive performance by The Sarasota Opera, this fundraising event, co-chaired by Sheila Birnbaum and Debbie Haspel, will benefit the Benevolent Care Program, which provides financial abatement for those residents who have outlived their financial resources, allowing them to continue to live and be cared for on the Kobernick-Anchin campus.
It was the dream of the Kobernick-Anchin founders to provide a senior housing campus where residents would never have to leave their homes despite changes in their health or financial status. “High quality healthcare extends lives, and because our residents are living longer, some are outliving their financialresources,” explains Darlene Arbeit, CEO of Kobernick- Anchin. The Benevolent Care Program has continued to grow over the years, and now averages approximately $500,000 per year in abatement costs for the campus. “We have never asked a resident to leave for financial reasons and the proceeds from this event will help to ensure that we never will,” Arbeit said.
The event is supported by Presenting Sponsors: KBR Foundation, Gulf Coast Community Foundation, Margot and Warren Coville, Gerard Daniel, Beatrice Friedman, Stanley Kane and Dan Paradies; Platinum Sponsors: Eileen and Howard Curd, Debbie and Larry Haspel, Betty and Ed Rosenthal, The Benderson Family and Gersh Cohn; Corporate Sponsors: BB&T, Dex Imaging, Atlas Insurance, Doctor’s Choice – Help at Home Homecare, Udell and Associates and Bottomline Solutions.
Individual tickets can be purchased for $100 and sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information, contact Denise Cotler at (941) 377-0781 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Established in 1993, Kobernick-Anchin is the only rental full continuum of care community in Sarasota. It is a state-of-the-art retirement complex on a beautiful campus, convenient to all the many cultural and recreational attractions in the greater Sarasota-Manatee area. It is a not-for-profit enterprise developed by the Sarasota Manatee Jewish Housing Council, offering seniors the very best in independent and assisted living as well as skilled nursing care and rehabilitation. The community has two residences, Kobernick House, with 191 apartments for retirees who enjoy active, independent living, and Anchin Pavilion. Housed within Anchin is a 70-bed assisted living facility, including the Fannie Green Memory Care Center, and the Benderson Family Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, a 5 star rated 50-bed skilled unit. All options are available on the same campus so those who choose to live here are able to age in place.
