Supporters of LSS Benevolent Care at Richmond Terrace packed Schlafly Bottleworks in Maplewood, Missouri on July 27 to help those older adults who have outlived their financial means.
“It’s a good event for increasing awareness about Benevolent Care,” said Katrie Spink, Senior Living Counselor at Richmond Terrace and event organizer. “Benevolent Care helps pay for the care needs of residents at Lutheran Senior Services communities, like Richmond Terrace, who have outlived their income. The need is tremendous.”
Which is where the idea for A Toast for Seniors came from. In partnership with Schlafly Bottleworks, 25% of all the beer sales that evening went to support Benevolent Care. “Schlafly is extremely active in the community and are huge supports of Richmond Terrace as a member of the Maplewood Chamber of Commerce,” said Katrie. “It is an honor to work with them on an event like this.”
Making the night even more memorable was the music of One More Round, a Johnny Cash tribute band featuring the vocals of Bill Forness. They rocked the house with Johnny Cash favorites including “Folsom Prison Blues” and “Cry, Cry, Cry”, of which Katrie also attributed their success to.
“I look forward to next year being even bigger and better with great music again from One More Round, great beer, great conversation, and a great benefit to Benevolent Care.”
