With the help of generous volunteers alongside Tabitha TEAMember, Kyle Duke, GracePointe clients and their families enjoyed delightful ice cream floats and banana splits.

The night included a drugstore-inspired soda fountain complete with a jerk, a soda jerk that is, Tabitha’s Executive Chef Oliver Gift and Food and Nutrition Associate Kyle Duke. Tasty treats were ordered up and drinks were served in original glass bottles. Memorabilia from the era were on display from 45 records, a drive-in filled with classic cars and guests sporting their best saddle shoes, letterman sweaters and poodle skirts.

“This is one of our favorite events of the year. It’s so much fun to plan and bring to life an evening that residents and their guests buzz about before, during and long after the night wraps up,” added GracePointe by Tabitha Administrator Megan Novell.
