Notably, Shirley Bernstein’s grandfather was an original founder of the SGLC. A one-day celebration just isn’t enough for attaining the ripe old age of 100 years old. Accordingly, Seashore Gardens Living Center, which just celebrated its 100th anniversary with a gala on August 4, will continue the celebration with a Black and White Ball on Saturday, October 22, at 7 p.m. at the Tropicana Atlantic City. The black-tie fundraiser will feature entertainment by the Eddie Bruce Orchestra.

The theme of the August gala, which raised $50,000 for SGLC’s foundation, was “A Century Of Caring, A Compassionate Future.” The evening featured a slideshow honoring the living center’s past, as well as an awards presentation recognizing several dedicated staff and community members.

President/CEO Martin Klein accepted the Martin H. Klein Leadership Award on behalf of the leaders who have guided SGLC. Board members Shirley and Howard Bernstein accepted the Labov Bernstein Community Service Award on behalf of the community members and volunteers who have donated time and funds. SGLC Executive Director Janice Cambron accepted a special Centennial award on behalf of the dedicated staff, and the residents and families who have been part of the SGLC family over the past 100 years. Board member Dean Scarpa, who served as Master of Ceremonies, also received the SGLC Centennial Master of Ceremonies award.

Also honored were the co-chairpersons for the event: Drs. David and Norma Blecker, Jerry and Shelley Bernstein and David and Caren Karp.
