Last month the Sunrise Manor Red Hat Society had a very successful fundraiser to raise money for charities. This summer they will have bake sales and yard sales for five organizations: multiple sclerosis, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. The bake sales are indoors in the first floor foyer entrance; yard sales are outside in front of the Nursing Home entrance.
Sunrise Manor volunteers are proud to assist in past Red Hat fundraising activities. Hats off to the Red Hat Society!
