2019 Fundraising Events at Canterbury

Canterbury’s 22nd Annual Gala is in the books!

On Saturday, September 28, 155 people attended the Gala held at White Lake Oaks. Guests were entertained by the excellent musicians from Midwest Dueling Piano. They played music that spanned the last 25 years in honor of Canterbury celebrating our 25th anniversary this year!

More than $18,000 was raised for Canterbury’s Terrace Garden Project on the third floor of The Pavilion. Once built, the Terrace Garden will provide a secure outdoor setting for our residents to safely spend time enjoying activities, visiting with family and friends and gardening.

Three of Canterbury’s original residents attended the gala and were honored – Liz Hard, Fran Keem and Joe Lanni. Many of our residents and their families were guests and enjoyed a beautiful evening.

Two of Canterbury’s employees who have been with us for 25 years were honored as well – Kimberly Foster and Rosemary Parsons. We were so happy to have them and their guests enjoy the evening.

Dr. Ray Breitenbach, fondly known as “Dr. B” throughout our community, was celebrated as Canterbury’s first medical director. He has been a long-time friend and supporter of Canterbury and we thank him for all that he does for our residents.

The Windeler Family was honored as Canterbury’s original benefactors in our Waterford location. Their contributions to our community are long and many and they continue to serve and support us. We sincerely enjoyed having several of the Windeler family members with us for the evening!

Thank you so much to this year’s sponsors and attendees; your ongoing support of Canterbury-on-the-Lake and our residents means the world to us!

We have already started planning next year’s Gala! More details are coming soon.
