A record crowd of more than 300 people attended the 10th annual Spirit of Giving Gala Saturday at Greensburg Country Club.

The event benefited the Benevolent Care Fund, which supports residents with depleted financial resources in the Redstone Highlands Senior Living Communities in Greensburg, North Huntingdon and Murrysville.

Newlyweds Todd and Adrienne Boslau, guests of ParenteBeard LLC, were the excited winners in a drawing for a trip for two to Scotland.

In addition to a live auction, there were chances to win in silent and Chinese auctions.

Tom Luscombe of Greensburg Floral sought out fragrant, fresh lavender for the table arrangements to complement the lovely purple place settings.

Honorary chairman and master of ceremonies was actor Bill Smitrovich, star of the '90s series “Life Goes On,” who has had roles in numerous television shows. He was recently seen in the movies “Ted” and “The Rum Diary.” Smitrovich's mother-in-law is a Redstone resident.

Seen: John and Linda Dickson, Chuck and Nancy Anderson, Lisa Dormire, Terry and Debbie Reese, David and Linda Assard, Art andSheila Caramella, Nichole Gantshar, John and Anne Driscoll, Dr. Jack and Georgia Smith, Robert andJo Ann Lightcap and Terry Graft and Linda Brown.
