The Night of Knights is sponsored by the Father James J. Farrell Council (No.
3296) of the Knights of Columbus, the Bendale Acres Volunteers and a variety of
Bendale Acres has a long tradition of providing quality long-term care to its
302 residents. Located in the former city of Scarborough, the residents rely on
a customized, wheelchair-accessible bus to enjoy outings, special events, and
just to see the sights of our city. As well, seniors in the community rely on
this same bus for escorted transportation to the Adult Day Centre at Bendale
Acres. But the existing bus needs to be replaced, and through the Night of
Knights, the community is stepping up to make this possible.
