Redstone Highlands Gala draws 300-plus to Greensburg Country Club
Greensburg Country Club was in regal form Nov. 15 for the 12th annual Redstone Highlands Gala, A Night at the Castle. The glow of red and gold lights set off the crystal and crimson table coverings.
Attendance was well over 300 for the benefit for the Benevolent Care Fund for the senior communities of Redstone Highlands in Greensburg, North Huntingdon and Murrysville. The evening’s honorary chairwoman and mistress of ceremonies, Kathy Svilar, snapped a picture of the McNamara family crest that hung near the podium. Svilar is president of KMS Advertising in Monroeville. Her mother, Norma McNamara, 84, is a resident at Redstone.
“Supporting the Benevolent Fund is crucial,” Svilar said. “She’s so excited I’m doing this tonight.”
Among the many items up for auction was a hockey stick signed by the entire 2013 Chicago Blackhawks team, donated by the George and Sandy Saad family. The Saads are the parents of Blackhawks left wing Brandon Saad.
