ComTec Sponsors The Philly Pops Concert to Benefit The Foundation of Morris Hall/St. Lawrence, Inc.
We’re a proud sponsor of The Philly Pops Concert to Benefit The Foundation of Morris Hall/St. Lawrence, Inc. scheduled for this Saturday, October 7 at 7:30 p.m. at Patriots Theater at the Trenton War Memorial in Trenton. The concert is held to benefit the patients and residents of St. Lawrence Rehabilitation Center and Morris Hall. These facilities consist of St. Mary’s Assisted Living, Grace Garden Memory Care, St. Joseph’s Skilled Nursing Center and Morris Hall Meadows.
“This is the sixteenth year that the Philly Pops have performed this benefit concert for us, and we are pleased that in addition to raising significant funds towards charity care, we have also been able to provide thousands of students in Mercer County with a unique cultural experience,” said Co-chair Honorable Pasquale Colavita.
The executive team of ComTec chose to support the foundation because they provide vital work in our communities through programs that:
- provide substantial dollars towards delivering quality healthcare for uninsured patients and indigent residents on their campus, and
- provide medical equipment for patients and residents that are not reimbursed by healthcare insurance, and
- promote safety education and injury programs in the community for children and their caretakers.
What tunes will you here at this year’s concert?
Get ready to tap your foot to “Broadway’s Greatest Hits,” featuring Broadway performers Christiane Noll, Doug LaBrecque, Dee Roscioli, and the Voices of the POPS. The concert will be followed by a reception with Maestro Michael Krajewski and the guest artists in the ballroom of the War Memorial for patrons and sponsors.
About Morris Hall
Morris Hall was established in 1904 with a bequest from Colonel Daniel Morris of Atlantic City and functioned as a nursing home until 1994, when the facility underwent a major renovation project. It now consists of St. Joseph’s Skilled Nursing Center, with 120-beds and St. Mary’s, the first licensed assisted living facility in Mercer County. In 2011, Grace Garden Memory Care was incorporated into the second floor of St. Mary’s. Residents are able to “age in place” so that as their needs increase, they will receive more care and may eventually transition to St. Joseph’s Skilled Nursing Center.
Morris Hall Meadows
Morris Hall Meadows at Lawrenceville offers a refreshing, contemporary approach to nursing home living, based on THE GREEN HOUSE® model developed by Dr. Bill Thomas. This innovative concept in nursing home care, the second of its kind in New Jersey, incorporates three core values: a meaningful life, a real home and empowered staff. Morris Hall Meadows residents live in actual homes offering more privacy and comfort than traditional nursing home settings. The Meadows provide another option for those who may want a different approach to nursing home life.
St. Lawrence Rehabilitation Center
St. Lawrence Rehabilitation Center is a fully accredited, private, not-for-profit physical rehabilitation hospital. It was established in 1971 and offers comprehensive rehabilitation services and therapies, such as Brain Injury Rehabilitation, Vision Rehabilitation, Driving Rehabilitation, Vestibular Rehabilitation and Dysphagia Therapy. A Wheelchair Seating Clinic, Prosthetics, and pain management services are also available. St. Lawrence also has a 23,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art Outpatient Therapy Department, which includes private examination and treatment rooms, lounge and splinting area, a spacious gym and on-site apartment for Activities of Daily Living.
The Foundation of Morris Hall/St. Lawrence, Inc. has focused on the safety and physical well-being of our community’s families. We also believe in the importance of encouraging and enhancing children’s exposure to the arts and cultural events. We believe that this dual effort would focus on the complimentary roles of both physical and emotional well-being, and would help foster the development of a well-balanced individual. Each year, we present programs in several schools in Mercer County that are designed to expand students’ musical knowledge by demonstrating various instrument sounds, the evolution of different instruments, music from different continents and an appreciation for the arts. These programs are educational as well as entertaining and enhance the cultural experience of The Philly Pops concert for the students. One lucky student will be selected to be the “Student Guest Conductor” and conduct the orchestra at the end of the concert. We are seeking sponsors who will provide tickets for students from these school districts to attend The Philly Pops concert at the War Memorial in October.
