Cura Celebrates 20th Anniversary at LeadingAge PA

Our Happy Clients

Cura’s team was excited to celebrate 20 years hosting our client dinner at LeadingAge PA, an association of not-for-profit service organizations that advocate for quality senior services and care! 

Cura’s booth was the place to be where our chefs prepared fresh food (with samples of course) for attendees during the trade show exhibit at the Hershey Lodge in Hershey, PA.

Chefs prepared banana, blueberry and mango colada smoothies from the Handcrafted Delights recipe collection; as well as a power brain salad and rosemary cashew mix from Seasonal Plate, a program developed by Cura's parent organization, Elior North America to highlight seasonal ingredients.  Kudos to the team from Messiah Lifeways:  Lindsey Clinton, executive chef, who created the menu and decorated the booth; along with Keenan Alexander and Chase Walter, sous chefs, who prepared the recipes at the booth!

Following the show, more than 100 of Cura’s clients were hosted at the Hershey Country Club where our culinary team prepared and served an exceptional, five-star dining experience that rivaled some of the top chefs in the country!

According to Jim Crossin, Cura district manager and organizer of the LeadingAge PA client dinner, “This event gives us the ability to demonstrate Cura's strengths in culinary arts, customer service and special event programming.  While our competitors take their clients out to local restaurants... Cura brings their passion for food to our clients! “
