Rockin’ Out at UMRC Foundation’s Annual Garden Party
The UMRC Foundation was delighted to once again host its annual Garden Party, after missing last year due to COVID-19. Honorary Chairs, Steve and Lori Sarns of Dexter, Michigan; Steve Fetyko, President and CEO of UMRC & Porter Hills; and Wendy Brightman, President of the UMRC & Porter Hills Foundation welcomed approximately 85 guests for strolling tours of the beautifully landscaped gardens and grounds of Chelsea Retirement Community, including the latest outdoor space – the Kresge Courtyard – surrounding the newly renovated and expanded Kresge Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center.
This year’s Garden Party was a little different, in order to keep everyone as safe as possible. Groups of ten to twelve at a time enjoyed a walking tour of campus, delectable treats and sips, entertainment and karaoke provided by Chuck Colby, and the chance to design and take home a bouquet from the cutting garden!
The Kresge Courtyard, made possible with funds raised from the 2019 Garden Party, includes handicapped accessible walking paths, putt-putt golfing, musical chimes, raised garden beds, colorful bird feeders, a fire pit, fairy garden, and, of course, lots of beautiful flowers.
The UMRC Foundation is grateful for its Presenting Sponsor, AZ Shmina Building Contractors; Diamond Sponsors, St. Joe’s Mercy Hospital, Steve and Lori Sarns, and Green Magic Growers; Sapphire Sponsor, CareLinc Medical & Supply; and Ruby Sponsors, Innerspace Design, Inc., and the Bob and Jan Lyons Foundation.
