To recognize its “inspirational volunteers who served during the pandemic,” Interfaith Caregivers of Greater Mercer County will hold its Shining Lights Gala Nov. 10 at The Stone Terrace, Hamilton.

“We are calling this year’s event a ‘Celebration of Resilience and Service’ as our volunteers worked so creatively to help us provide the most essential caregiving services to our elderly and disabled residents,” said Linda Gyimoty, ICGMC executive director. “This includes volunteers from all the Catholic parishes who work with us.”

Honorees include volunteers from the parishes of St. George, Titusville; St. Alphonsus, Hopewell; St. James, Pennington; Incarnation-St. James, Ewing; Mary, Mother of the Church, Bordentown; Our Lady of Good Counsel, West Trenton; Our Lady of Sorrows-St. Anthony, Hamilton; Our Lady of the Angels, Trenton; Sacred Heart, Trenton; St. Ann, Lawrenceville; St. Anthony of Padua, Hightstown; St. Gregory the Great, Hamilton Square; St John the Baptist, Allentown; St. Joseph, Millstone; St. Raphael-Holy Angels, Hamilton, and St. Vincent DePaul, Yardville.

The evening, which includes dinner, dessert, speakers and fundraising auction, will be both in-person at The Stone Terrace’s ballroom, and livestreamed for those who wish to attend virtually, courtesy of Riverview Studios, Bordentown. More than 250 guests are expected to attend.

“As we all work on re-opening and rebuilding our world, we are so thankful to these generous volunteers whose compassion and commitment ensured that our mission endured and our most essential services continued,” Gyimoty continued. “Our elderly and disabled neighbors needed us, and our volunteers continued to answer the call, crafting unique and loving solutions to nearly insurmountable and often frightening obstacles. We are so proud to stand with them this year and spotlight their generosity, courage and dedication!”
