Wesley Manor Presents 2008 Cross & Flame Awards

October 27, 2008

On October 2 at its 2008 Celebration Dinner, Wesley Manor publicly recognized and thanked its Golf Committee Co-Chairs, Allen Snively and Mike Simpson, by awarding them the “2008 Cross and Flame Award.”  Each of these recipients, members of Louisville’s Christ Church, embody the spirit of benevolence, volunteerism, integrity, and social action espoused by John Wesley, the father of Methodism.

Through their efforts as Co-Chairs of Wesley Manor’s 2006-2008 Golf Scrambles, these energetic volunteers have helped Wesley Manor raise more than $77,000 for its Charitable Care Program.  One hundred percent of these funds were used to assist needy residents who have outlived their assets - making it possible for them to remain in their “homes” at Wesley Manor.

Following the “Cross and Flame Award” video and presentation, Bishop Lindsey Davis inspired and delighted dinner guests as Wesley Manor’s featured speaker at its 2008 Celebration Dinner.  His comments were filled with wit and wisdom as he spoke about the importance of senior care missions, sharing stories from his own experiences in ministry.

One of Wesley Manor’s assisted living residents Bob McKenerick gave a personal testimony about the value and importance of Wesley Manor’s benevolent care.

To date $62,000 has been raised through this event to aid needy Wesley Manor residents. A final total will not be available until later in the year.
