MHCO’s Inaugural Gala October 13th

Mennonite Home Communities of Ohio will host their inaugural Gala on October 13th, 2022.  This year’s theme will be “Game Day”, and guests will be invited to wear their favorite sports attire – from a hat to a full team uniform. MHCO’s Gala is a fundraising event to benefit the Mennonite Home Communities of Ohio Benevolent Care Fund, which provides support to care for older adults who have outlived their resources.

This event will take place at The Centre at Bluffton, at 601 N. Main St from 6 to 7:30 pm.  Guests will be treated to a Game Day dinner of Philly Steak, BBQ Smoked Chicken, Fried Potatoes, macaroni salad, Tossed Salad and cookies and brownies .  The meal will be catered by The Centre.  Entertainment during the dinner event includes raffles, silent auctions and a live auction.  Corporate, Church and Family sponsorships are available for the event.  Prizes are also still being collected for this event.

MHCO would like to thank Plante Moran for being a Platinum Sponsor for this event.  If you or your business or organization would like to contribute with a sponsorship or a prize, please contact Chris Moser at or at 419-358-1015, x263.  In discussing the purpose of the event, Chris shared, “MHCO is looking forward to this first Gala.  It serves our community well by enjoying a good meal, supporting a cause worthy of our generosity, and to also have some fun!  In general, we are seeing people live longer, more active lives – which is a good thing.  This can cause challenges when it comes to affording care, however, and people often think that Medicaid pays the full cost of long-term care.  In reality, elder care providers like MHCO typically are reimbursed only two-thirds of the cost of care, which is why we are focusing on the need for benevolent care support.  Please join us for an enjoyable evening and support the older adults we serve.  We have some really neat prizes and experiences that have been provided to support this effort.  We are looking forward to seeing you at the event!”
