"Gala of Taste" Raises Fund for Mercy House of the Southern Tier
ENDICOTT, N.Y. -
Desserts from Southern Tier bakeries, drinks from regional wineries and a silent auction are all for a good cause.
Mercy House hosted its 5th Annual "Gala of Taste" Thursday night at Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish Center in Endicott.
All proceeds will go to the non-denominational community care shelter for the terminally ill.
This will help offset the expenses related to resident care.
"This is a way for us to give a big thank you to all of our supporters and donors of Mercy House that support our mission. When they come here they have a lot of fun and it's a big thank you to them," Linda Cerra, the Executive Director of the Mercy House, said.
Mercy House has taken care of more than 257 residents since opening in 2016.
This event will raise about $50,000 dollars for the organization.
