RUDI HOENSON LAUNCHES $200,000 MATCHING GIFT CHALLENGE
Atomic bomb survivor, ex-prisoner-of-war and benefactor Rudi Hoenson has issued a matching gift challenge. He will match all donations from the community up to $200,000 to the Overhead Lift Campaign to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. It costs $5,300 for all the equipment and installation of an overhead ceiling lift in a resident's room; 80 rooms still need to be completed. With approximately $400,000 left to raise, the campaign's original $1.2 million goal is within reach with the combined donations from you and Rudi.

Select the image above to go to our 20th Anniversary video.
Lodge at Broadmead resident Mr. Maury Hundleby was host to members of the MARPAC Nijmegen team on Friday June 18, 2015. Team members are participating in an annual marching event in the Netherlands. They will walk the same streets that WWII veteran Maurice Hundleby did when he was stationed there during the Second World War. Mr. Hundleby has chronicled his tour of duty during WWII in a carefully detailed scrapbook that he will share with the MARPAC members to provide them inspiration during their walk at the Nijmegen event.
