An Evening of Fine Dining Raises Funds To Benefit Parkinson’s Support Group


Litchfield, CT — Over one hundred professionals and members of the community gathered at Brandywine Living at Litchfield on February 13, 2019 to enjoy an evening of international delights prepared by the talented culinary team at Brandywine Living. The event, “An Epicurean Evening”, was hosted alongside co-sponsors, Hartford Healthcare Independence at Home and Agile Life Mobility System, to benefit the Greater Torrington Parkinson’s Support Group (TAPSG).

“When we learned that our friends at TAPSG were in need of funding for an additional exercise class at the Sullivan Senior Center, we wanted to help. The idea of “An Epicurean Evening” came from the wonderful food created by our professionally trained chefs for the Epicurean Adventures Program that our residents enjoy each month,” commented Amber Chapman, Director of Community Relations at Brandywine Living at Litchfield.

Attendees started their evening by tasting exquisite bites from around the world, sampling signature beverages and trying their luck on amazing raffle prizes. For dessert, they were invited to the community’s second floor Serenade Wing, which features beautiful concierge-level suites and deluxe amenities.

Interactive demonstrations by Blue Boy Boxing and the Agile Life Transfer Bed entertained and educated attendees as they mingled and toured the luxury senior living community.

The event raised over $3,000 to benefit TAPSG, whose mission is to maximize strength, minimize disability and achieve and maintain full potential of people with Parkinson’s and their caretakers.

Susan Pelchat, president of TAPSG, expressed the following words of thanks: “Community partnerships are so important for supporting people in need while creating lasting bonds among agencies. A simple thank you will never be enough, yet these are the sincerest words we can offer. We appreciate Brandywine’s outreach and the positive impact their contribution will have on our members with Parkinson’s disease. This fundraiser has strengthened our ability to offer an exercise program created especially for people with Parkinson’s. We extend our heartfelt thanks to the sponsors of the event and to the dozens of people who participated.”

Brandywine Living at Litchfield looks forward to continuing to support local Connecticut families affected by Parkinson’s disease through TAPSG’s mission.
