Midsummer’s Eve Soirée a Success
Written by Admin | June 25, 2019 | In The News
A Shakespearean-style garden party was a wonderful success June 20. A new fundraiser for Independent Living, Inc., the Midsummer’s Eve Soirée featured mouthwatering hors d’oeuvres and delectable desserts displayed on a feasting table, plus a magic potion cocktail concoction that changed colors. The repast was created by the talented chef at Vignette Dining Club, where the event was hosted. The camaraderie was delightful with guests, sponsors and donors enjoying a truly beautiful evening. Many dined at themed tables named for prominent characters in the bard’s famous “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” A few tried their skills at the wine bottle ring toss. A pair of connoisseurs hosted a wine tasting station. A magician, musicians and theatre troupe entertained periodically throughout the evening. Concluding the evening was the luxury raffle with prizes ranging from a Florida getaway to beautiful jewelry, and from original art to a culinary cooking and fine dining experience. Proceeds support the mission of ILI which is to support seniors and adults with disabilities through comprehensive in-home services and options in senior living communities.
Guiding the event was Jo Hoffman, of BR Diamond Suite and board member at Independent Living. With support from ILI’s full board, plus staff and amazing group of volunteers, Midsummer’s Eve Soirée became one enchanted evening to remember!
