Farmington Presbyterian Manor’s annual Chicken and Dumplings Dinner and Silent Auction benefits Presbyterian Manor residents who have outlived their resources. Held annually in March, the event is a chicken and dumpling dinner and silent auction. The 2016 event will be from 4 to 7 p.m. March 31.
Farmington Presbyterian Church, 403 W. Columbia, hosts the event. Dinner will be served from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of the Presbyterian Church. Diners may choose to dine in or carry out a classic chicken-and-dumplings meal with a traditional side, roll, dessert and drink. There also will be a silent auction with fantastic donations to bid on. Tickets are $8 in advance and $9 at the door. Or, you may buy 10 or more tickets for $7 each.
The Good Samaritan Program depends solely on donations from friends and supporters. Each year, Farmington Presbyterian Manor has a fundraiser to support the local Good Samaritan Program. This totals more than $950,000 in unreimbursed care each year. Last year's dinner raised more than $16,000.
