Abramson Senior Care, formerly the Madlyn and Leonard Abramson Center for Jewish Life, held its 28th annual Rainbow Ball on Saturday, October 13th at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel. Over 300 guests gathered to congratulate Ann and Richard Frankel (Gladwyne) as they received the Family Award, Abramson’s highest honor, in recognition of their extraordinary dedication to improving the quality of life of older adults.
Mr. Frankel is a board trustee and has been instrumental in fostering the partnership between Abramson and Main Line Health which led to the establishment of the Edna Young Gordon Healthy Brain and Memory Center in Bryn Mawr and Birnhak Transitional Care at Lankenau Medical Center.
The evening’s theme “Celebrating Partnerships” recognized all the trusted relationships – from the families of those receiving care through one of Abramson’s many services throughout Greater Philadelphia to the Board of Trustees, donors and caregivers – that help Abramson realize its vision of providing exceptional care to seniors.
The gala and its Family Album ad book raised in excess of $715,000 to support Abramson’s commitment to providing care for older adults who do not have the financial means to pay for their own care.
