Tabitha Signature Event Celebrates Community Support

Tabitha, Nebraska’s industry-leading provider in care for older adults, hosted sponsors, donors and community leaders at its annual Signature Event fundraiser, themed “Harmony Through the Ages.”

Nonprofit Tabitha spotlighted its eras of service since its founding in Lincoln, Neb. in 1886, first as an orphanage, then a dedicated senior care organization by the 1960s.

The Lincoln Country Club transformed into a live music venue as the Southwood Lutheran Church’s Men’s Quartet took to the stage with acapella tunes. Then, local vocalists Angelia Lalece Onuoha and Oneike “Niki” Onuoha—sisters of the late Sue Hill, an integral leader in Tabitha’s nursing education program and namesake of the Sue Hill Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Sponsorship—performed a selection of tunes that were well-loved during significant eras in Tabitha’s history.

Funds raised at this event are dedicated to supporting the seniors Tabitha serves, directly supplementing the care of many older adults throughout Nebraska, and funding Tabitha Meals on Wheels, the long-standing meal delivery and safety check program that allows hundreds of vulnerable Lincoln neighbors to remain independent in the comfort of their own home.

“Tabitha’s long-term success is thanks to harmonious relationships with other like-minded leaders and local organizations making an impact on Nebraska,” said JP Lauterbach, Director of Tabitha’s Foundation. “Each year, the Signature Event strengthens these bonds and provides Tabitha the opportunity to show exactly how their charitable contributions benefit Clients, Residents and families. We couldn’t be more grateful for our Connections with these change-makers.”

Davidson, Immanuel, Pinnacle Bank, Runza, Talent Plus, TheKey, and U-Stop, as well as multiple other corporate and individual donors.
