A Musical Feast - LEC Foundation’s Signature Event
Mark your calendar for the Life Enriching Communities Foundation’s, A Musical Feast. This signature event features distinct musical performances by the talented Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) students who reside at Twin Towers while working on their Master’s Degree.
From the sounds of swinging jazz and ethereal harp, to stunning operatic vocals, the evening will be filled with a variety of beautiful music. While listening to these talented artists you will enjoy cocktails, savory bites, and have the opportunity to peruse a silent auction filled with unique and lovely items.
Last year’s event raised over $85,000 to support the many needs of our senior residents at Twin Lakes and Twin Towers Senior Living Communities, including Benevolent Care. The Benevolent Care fund ensures residents who have outlived their personal financial resources or experienced a catastrophic event, can continue to live in their Life Enriching Communities home and community.
This year with your support, we hope to raise over $110,000, allowing us to support and serve even more residents.
