Gourmet Gala

Dear Friends of Ascension Providence Rochester Foundation,

We are pleased to inform you of an exciting new opportunity to bring the community together this fall. Prior to the pandemic, we hosted our Annual Gourmet Gala each November. The two-year interruption due to COVID and the continually changing climate of healthcare led us to reconsider our plans for special events. At the same time, a very special opportunity presented itself, and we have decided to take some of the well-loved elements of the Gourmet Gala and add them to a fun event at the Palazzo di Bocce in Lake Orion on October 8, 2022.

This new event, named Mangia Bocce, will offer a taste of Italy from the food and drinks to a bocce tournament complete with prizes and bragging rights! You will have a chance to enjoy delicious food,
good company and participate in a little friendly competition, if you wish – all in one evening. We hope you are as excited as we are to bring the community together this fall at this outstanding event. We look forward to having you join us for Manga Bocce on October 8 at 5 p.m. This means we will not be hosting the Gourmet Gala on November 12 as previously communicated.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. For more information, please visit our Mangia Bocce event page or email specialevents@ascension.org.
