Celebrating Sarah Reed’s 150th Anniversary

Sarah’s Fall Fling (historically) is a fun filled day that begins with the time to shop with local vendors and buy tickets for a multitude of beautiful, unique themed baskets. A lovely luncheon is served and is followed by a style show. This is a great way to get together with friends while supporting the residents of Sarah Reed Senior Living! All proceeds raised from the Fall Fling benefit the Special Purpose Fund which is used to purchase items that will enhance the lives of our residents. This year we are holding a modified version of the event on-line.

Coming in October:  View baskets here and buy raffle tickets for them using the paypal button below.

Become a Sponsor

By making a financial commitment as a sponsor to the Fall Fling, you will be supporting a popular function in the community while helping out our residents. Last year the event raised nearly $17,000. We anticipate close to 400 attendees this year.

Donate items for Raffles

One of the most popular activities during the event is our Themed Basket Raffle. Last year, we created 60 different theme baskets – each valued around $100 plus. The baskets contained various gifts from businesses – staff and friends of Sarah Reed. As donor, you will be recognized in our Fall Fling program and on the basket displayed. If you cannot donate a complete basket, please consider an item or two, gift cards and gift certificates are most welcomed!

Be a Vendor

Do you have unique items to sell? Why not be a vendor in our shopping concourse at the Fall Fling. This event offers its attendees a great opportunity to shop local.


It takes many dedicated workers to pull off this event! We are looking for people to solicit businesses for donations, pick them up, and also volunteers to work at the event.




Your support will not only help us with this awesome event but will enable us to continue providing quality care and services to all our residents. We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, so donations are tax deductible in accordance with the law.
