Waveny Care Network Launches Annual Fund Drive to Enhance Dining Experience throughout Network
Posted on October 5, 2011
Waveny Care Network’s annual fund chairperson, Joan Dionne, prepares to launch a $350,000 campaign designed to support the transition to “Point of Service” or “Restaurant Style” dining throughout the entire continuum of care including the Care Center, The Village, and Adult Day Program.
New Canaan, CT – Joan Dionne, chairperson of Waveny Care Network’s Annual Appeal Committee, announced the kick-off of the organization’s annual fund drive. “This year’s campaign focuses on enhancing the dining experience throughout the entire continuum of care, including the Care Center, The Village and the Adult Day Program,” said Joan Dionne. “We are excited to transition to “Point of Service” or “Restaurant Style” throughout the network.
The first phase of the transition will involve the refurbishment and renovation of the Care Center’s main dining room to include serving carts, grills, steam carts, furniture, plants, new carpeting, wallpaper, and paint to transform the room into a spacious, warm and inviting environment perfect for enjoying a relaxing meal. These changes will help to provide individualized service in cuisine presentation and delivery, while facilitating additional options to accommodate special dietary needs and preferences. The overall plan will be implemented in stages and will begin before the new year.
“Throughout my involvement with Waveny Care Network, I have been inspired by it’s loyal family of staff, volunteers and donors who contribute selflessly to upholding Waveny’s mission, vision and values,” said Joan Dionne. “I am honored to chair this year’s annual appeal campaign designed to raise $350,000 seeking to provide all whom we serve with the highest quality of service, selection, convenience and dining flexibility.”
