Morning Pointe FUN-Raiser Supports Aging Care

Monday, September 11, 2017

Morning Pointe of Collegedale at Greenbriar Cove and The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Collegedale celebrated another year putting the "fun" in "fundraiser," during the Carnival at the Cove event at the assisted living and Alzheimer’s memory care campus.

 

The audience was entertained by the talented Southern Adventist University Gym-Masters gymnastics team, and local officials, including Hamilton County Mayor Jim Coppinger, County Commissioners Sabrina Turner-Smedley, Chester Bankston, joined in on the fun.

Residents, family members and guests of all ages enjoyed carnival fare, games, live music, and – best of all – the opportunity to dunk their favorite dignitaries.

 

The festivities kicked off a week-long celebration of seniors and their families during National Assisted Living Week.

 

Morning Pointe invites the greater community to celebrate seniors through annual observances, as residents, associates, relatives and local partners embrace family every day of the year as part of the life enrichment and Meaningful Day programs.

 

"What we love most about our programming is that family is always at the heart of everything we do," said Jennifer McFarland, executive director at Morning Pointe. "This event was our way of celebrating the seniors, associates and their loved ones who truly are our family."

 

All event proceeds benefited the Morning Pointe Foundation.
