Rocking for Residents 2013

6/8/2013 - 12:00pm - 3:30pm
Marian Manor, Vincentian Home, Vincentian de Marillac

Join Sister Patricia Eleanor, SHS, and all of us
June 8, 2013, from 12:00 – 3:30 p.m. when we’ll be Rocking for Residents—our Vincentian Residents—all across Allegheny County. 

Help our Homes raise money to buy some comforting "extras" for the elderly residents in their care:  blankets and blanket-warmers to soothe aches and pains and install personal television sets to allow residents to remain engaged and entertained in the comfort of their own rooms!

What is Rocking for Residents?

For Rocking for Residents, participants are pledging to sit and rock for a period of time.  Sisters, residents, friends and families will be rocking the day away—with pledged rocking in 15 minute intervals (for example $5.00 for every 15 minutes would mean $20.00 for one hour of rocking). More than a fundraiser, it’s a FUN raiser.  Entertainment! Food! Raffles! Games! Prizes! Bake Sales! Fun for families and friends of all ages.
