The Sunset Auxiliary of Wesbury was founded in 1954 by Mrs. Florence Braun and is a network of individuals and groups within the Western Pennsylvania Conference of the United Methodist Church who make friends and raise funds for the residents of Wesbury.
The Sunset Auxiliary operates a Gift Shoppe, which is located in the lobby of Grace Rehabilitation and Health Center, sponsors special events like the Annual Chicken BBQ and Craft Fair and conducts membership drives within the churches and on the Wesbury campus to raise funds for their special projects.
Over the years, the Auxiliary has donated a van with a wheelchair lift, minibus with hydraulic lift, handrails and furnishings for Cribbs Residential Center, large print books and hymnals, audiotapes, a blanket warmer for Grace Rehabilitation and Health Center, Christmas and birthday gifts for residents and much, much more.
The Wesbury Foundation is honored to partner with these devoted fundraising volunteers and members.
