One hundred percent of the proceeds raised by Magnolia Manor events go directly to resident support. This annual event benefits The League of the Good Samaritan, the charitable arm of Magnolia Manor. The League was created in order to assure Magnolia Manor stays true to its founding fathers’ promise; “no one, having chosen to come to Magnolia Manor, would ever have to leave due to an inability to pay for care.” This fund directly pays for the care of residents whose funds have been depleted and otherwise would have no ability to provide for their basic needs.
Come out, enjoy the fun, enjoy the fellowship and most importantly know you have helped some others in need.
For questions, to register locally or if you are interested in sponsoring the event, contact Sheila Bivins, event manager at Magnolia Manor. She can be reached by calling 229-931-5928 or by email
