In April SpiriTrust Lutheran® hosted the 14th Annual SpiriTrust Lutheran® Cornerstone Dinner, one of the largest annual fundraising event in York County. We are extraordinarily grateful for the ongoing commitment and overwhelming generosity of the many individuals and businesses that supported the dinner this year and especially appreciative of those who have supported us consistently through the years.
The Cornerstone Dinner recognizes significant contributions of philanthropy and celebrates an individual, couple or family who enrich York County with direct charitable support, leadership and volunteer service.
This year we had the honor and privilege to recognize the Bill and Kim Kerlin with the 2017 Cornerstone Award. Bill and Kim are community pillars who have served many local organizations with their time, talent and treasure including United Way of York County, WellSpan Health and York County Community Foundation. They also co-chaired the $1.3 million Creative York capital campaign in 2015. Their collective involvement has made a positive impact on the York community and exemplifies the mission of SpiriTrust Lutheran.
In 2016, SpiriTrust Lutheran’s life enhancing programs provided more than $400,000 in benevolent care in York County through Deaf Connections, Domestic Abuse Solutions, Financial Education & Coaching, Senior Companion Program, Stephen Ministry, Touch-a-Life and Volunteer Income Tax Assistance. This year, partners and sponsors of the Cornerstone Dinner helped raise more than $200,000 in support of these life enhancing services. Since its inception in 2004, more than $2.3 million has been raised through this event.
Our sincere appreciation is extended to our many sponsors and advertisers, especially M&T Bank, our grand sponsor who has generously supported us at this level for all 14 years.
We also are very grateful for the partnership of Glatfelter Insurance Group, Flagship Rehabilitation and Sodexo Quality of Life Services, our platinum sponsors; and Arnett Carbis Toothman LLP CPAs & Advisors, The Asbury Group Integrated Technologies, BNY Mellon, McConkey Insurance & Benefits, Reinsel Kuntz Lesher LLP, Strathmeyer Landscape and WellSpan Health, our silver sponsors.
In closing, we thank the Greater York community for its steadfast commitment in supporting both our community-at-large and the programs and services of SpiriTrust Lutheran.
