The Annual Pasta Dinner is a Sellout!

Penne PastaWe are proud to announce that we exceeded our goal of raising $10,000 at our 7th Annual Pasta Dinner! We would like to thank the greater northwestern Macomb County community and our sponsors for their generous support.

We especially want to thank the event sponsor, Michigan Credit Union League & Affiliates, and additional sponsors Heidebreicht Chevrolet, State Representative Pete Lucido, Kiwanis of Romeo Area, Preceptor Delta Beta of Beta Sigma Phi, Michigan Oil and Gas Association, Tim and Margaret Trublowski, and Macomb Welding and Assembly LLC for making this event a success.

The February 1st event was highlighted when Shelby Township Supervisor, Rick Stathakis, presented a $1,500 check to Samaritan House donated by Roco Juncovic of Utica Van Dyke Towing. Kroger, located at 26 Mile and Van Dyke, matched the $1,500 gift!

We also would like to thank John and Rick Salsido of Wayward Wind, and strolling magician/comedian Jason Abbott, for the wonderful entertainment provided for the enjoyment of our dinner guests.

Mark your calendar! We have confirmed next year's Pasta & Chicken Dinner date with Greystone Golf Club and Banquet Center. It will be held on Wednesday, February 7, 2018.

Making the Season Jolly with Sharing Tree!

Christmas Tree
Sharing Tree is a very large program. Christmas gifts were provided to 970 individuals, which included families and residents of nursing homes and adult foster care homes. In addition, each family received a gift card to a local grocery store to use for their Christmas dinner. More than three hundred volunteers served 1,794 hours to make Christmas merry for our friends and neighbors.

We want to thank the Romeo Goodfellows, and all who sold or bought newspapers so gift cards could be purchased for Christmas dinners. We also want to thank all who purchased gifts or donated money to provide gifts to families and seniors, and all of our wonderful volunteers that have worked so hard interviewing clients, preparing tags, shopping for and wrapping gifts, sorting and distributing gifts and everything else that's needed to make this a successful program!

Samaritan House would like to acknowledge and thank the Four County Community Foundation for its role in our 2016 Sharing Tree program. We couldn't do our work without broad community participation, and this includes our friends at the community foundation.
