Thank You!
A special thank you to all of our dear friends and guests that participated and supported our “Friendsgiving: A Celebration of Care Benefit” on Saturday! We are so grateful for your continued interest and support with the work and programs of the Farrell Foundation. Many enjoyed seeing our new Carolyn’s Greenhouse Gallery & Garden along with our new Little Library. We appreciate the many individuals that helped make this vision and benefit possible. First, Karen King Catering in Lakewood for the wonderful dinners and desserts! We appreciated the following Board Members help: Charlie Farrell, Ed Farrell, Dorothy Faller, Carmen Iditoiu and family, Kathy Kassimatis, Andrew Mangels, Gretty Myers, Dave Clements and Betsy Wallace. An enormous thank you to Richard Skerl, Kate Fayen, and Linda Santanen, plus all of our artists that donated artwork for the benefit; Lee Ann Eyre, Luanne Becker, Beckie Tweedle, Richard Skerl, Elizabeth Revy, Luise Easton, and Joanne Wolk. A special thank you
to all of our musicians for their wonderful performances: Chris Kilbane,
Beckie Tweedle and Ruth Williams.
Thank You!
We especially appreciate the financial support for the Garden & Gallery from Dorothy Faller in honor of her late husband Dolph Faller, Dr. John Eyre and Lee Ann Eyre and Elaine Cohen. If you have not been by the Center, stop by and enjoy the beautiful new deck, view the gallery filled with art by participants in our Creative Connections (TM) art enrichment program and the small garden, all from the safety of outside. Visit day or night! Brochures and flyers fill our new Little Library. Thanks to the efforts of Mark Brinich and the artistic talent of Lee Ann Eyre. Special mention to Howell Landscaping of Westlake for their work in constructing the deck and landscape design. Your gift can help offset costs for these improvements and for future guests and the community to long enjoy! Visit out website to donate.
