Donation helps fundraising effort

NORTHVILLE – The Sacandaga Task Force for Senior Living announced recently the receipt of a $l,700 gift from St. Mary’s Healthcare in Amsterdam.

The gift is in support of STFSL efforts to purchase property for senior housing in the village, a news release said.

“This is the second year that we have received a generous donation from St. Mary’s for this project and we are grateful to them,” said Jim Conkling, STFSL president, in the release.

The donation will be used to underwrite expenses incurred for a May 17 reception and concert that will kick off a fundraising effort for the senior housing. The pre-concert reception will be held at The Inn at The Bridge. Tickets are limited to 100 people.

Those who attend the reception will enjoy appetizers, a complimentary glass of wine and three tickets for a raffle, the release said. Raffle items include a overnight stay at the Inn with complimentary champagne and breakfast for two, an archival photo print by Harry Wirtz, and a one-of-a-kind hand-painted silk scarf by Lynne Holstein.
