Though attendees hid behind masks in keeping with the masquerade theme, it’s no mystery as to why this year’s Savoy event was the most successful yet, with $50,000 raised by Bayview Manor Foundation! This far exceeded the fundraising goal of $39,000 – the average cost in 2018 of one year of financial support to a Bayview resident.
The secret to Savoy’s success?
Sponsors. Fourteen fabulous sponsors underwrote the cost of the evening’s food and entertainment for guests.

Residents. Bayview residents are famous for getting involved but this year they blew the top off with their fantastic support! Approximately two dozen volunteers did everything from donating and designing decorations and centerpieces, to inflating balloons, registering guests and providing auction support. Their hard work and energy made a huge difference!
Donors. Guests reserved their attendance through donations ranging from $25 to $2,000!
Many who couldn’t attend also sent in donations. A new twist to the night this year was a small but exciting live auction that included a “raise the paddle” portion; 192 spirited guests raised
well over half the event’s proceeds just during the auction!
Bayview Manor Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) organization, thanks everyone for their generous support of their mission to: First and foremost, help those residents of Bayview who, through
no fault of their own, are without sufficient financial resources to continue to live with their friends and neighbors at Bayview; enrich the retirement years of Bayview residents; and Fund
any other programs and services furthering Bayview’s mission.
Mark your calendars for Savoy 2020 on Friday, September 11. To donate, go here.
