Warm Hearth Foundation’s Annual Cheeseburger in Parrot-dise Fundraiser Celebrates 10 Years of Fun and Funds For Seniors

August 28, 2023

On August 11, the Warm Hearth Foundation kicked off its annual fund drive with the 10th annual Cheeseburger in Parrot-dise fundraising event. Thanks to the support of sponsors, local businesses, volunteers and guests, the record-breaking event raised more than $53,000 to provide vital programs for seniors at Warm Hearth Village through the Neighbors In Need Fund.

The 16,000 square foot Village Center was transformed into a tropical island getaway complete with steel drum music, tropical beverages, pirate booty at the silent auction and nearly 300 lively partygoers. “The silent auction is always full of great pieces of beautiful works of art. This year’s scavenger hunt was a great way for attendees to get to see the beautiful building and get to interact with new friends. What a wonderful and fun way to help our neighbors at Warm Hearth,” said resident Mary Scesney
