The following groups host a number of events every year including dinners, balls, quiz nights, cocktail parties and whatever else can work!
As the name suggests, this fundraising group, with an average committee member age of around 35, is comprised of young professionals with some form of connection to St Hilarion who bring with them new ideas, great enthusiasm and links to the South Australian corporate sector.
The first Next Generation event was a Quiz Night held in early 2011 with over 300 people attending and $26,000 raised after expenses - a fantastic start! This was followed by a highly successful Christmas Cocktail evening later that year at the Semaphore Palais. Some great events are planned for the next 12 months and we welcome your involvement.
Our Ladies Committee has been doing a fantastic job for many years, staging our very popular Pasta Nights, Melbourne Cup luncheons and other fundraising events across Adelaide.
With planning meetings generally held over a café latte and biscotti in our café at The House of St Hilarion, the committee offers a great way to support our ageing community while making friends with this dynamic and very social group.
We are delighted to announce a brand new initiative the Dolci Santi Committee, to engage our staff, volunteers and residents to utilise our multiple kitchen facilities at the House of Saint Hilarion.
As the name suggests, Dolci Santi will involve volunteers, in co-operation with our Lifestyles team and Community Liaison Officer.
The committee will be cooking a range of sweet (and savoury) biscuits, cakes and other treats on a weekly basis to engage our residents who will experience the pleasure of lovely aromas wafting through our home, not to mention the fun in observing the demonstrations and then doing the tastings.
We know that many in our community have great skills in the kitchen and personalities to match, and we invite you to put your hand up to volunteer by becoming a Dolce Santo! If you have two hours to spare on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis we would love to hear from you! We are sure you will have a fun time with us while helping to promote the wellbeing of our residents.
If you would like to join either of these fundraising groups or wish to find out further information, please call St Hilarion on 8409 1500 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
