Memorable Celebrations

Cura’s teams are helping to create memorable celebrations and special themed meals for residents and their families!

Happy 65th Wedding Anniversary to a very special couple who reside at the Presbyterian Communities of South Carolina at The Village at Summerville.  They enjoyed our menu of she crab soup, tossed salad with house-made honey mustard dressing, steak and potatoes for the entree and a wonderful lemon cake with raspberry filling made by our resident Pastry Chef William.

 

A note from their daughter…
Mom and dad thoroughly enjoyed their lunch and everyone’s part in making their day special. Dad couldn’t stop talking not only about how delicious the steak was, but also how it was cooked to perfection! He also commented on how much he enjoyed eating on china with silver! Mom was delighted that so many staff members stopped by to speak to them. She was glad to see people, even if from a distance!

The cake was beautiful! William did a spectacular job on it! I am going to divide it up and share with the family.
Thank you so much in being a part of mom and dad’s special day and being willing to do something a bit different!
Everything was perfect!

The Cura team also helped to pull off a surprise 65th wedding anniversary party for a Newhaven Court couple at Lutheran Seniorlife at the Passavant Community. With a no visitation policy still in place, the Cura team set up a special romantic table for two in the private dining room and the family table on our porch outside. The family brought in a few props and some pictures for them to enjoy! We served both the happy couple and the family their dinner and dessert so they could celebrate this joyous occasion together!

 

Our third 65th anniversary was celebrated at The Florence Presbyterian Community in South Carolina.  The Cura team helped Mr. Kelham create a very special celebration! What a day to remember!

It’s Viva Italiano at Providence Point in Pittsburgh, PA. This wonderful themed meal for our residents was prepared by our outstanding Executive Chef Caleb Hicks and Sous Chef Malana Falconer who prepared an Italian stuffed pork tenderloin with wild rice mushroom stuffing topped with an Alfredo chardonnay sauce; or prosciutto wrapped shrimp with fresh mozzarella balls and basil pesto; or Grilled swordfish with beurre blanc sauce. All served with salad, sides and a cannoli – of course! This is fine dining prepared by talented chefs!

Providence Point also enjoyed an authentic luau themed feast! Delicious salmon salad, Laulah pulled pork, pipkaula (marinated flat iron steak), sesame seared tuna steak with balsamic lime reduction, and more!  The dining team also donned Hawaiian attire!

 

Sherwood Oaks in Cranberry Township, PA, also goes Hawaiian!  Residents enjoyed this creative themed event in the main dining room – 6 feet apart – while enjoying chilled mango soup, coconut lime tilapia, jerk chicken, steamed rice and fresh veggies!  Who couldn’t resist red raspberry pie and chocolate lava cake for dessert!
