Annual Events

Senior Resources hosts several annual fundraising events to support our programs. We welcome you to get involved, whether you want to run or walk in a 5K, volunteer to help at an event, become a sponsor of an event, or support our programs with a donation.

March for Meals

March for Meals began with Senior Resources in 1997 and is now a nationally recognized fundraising event for Meals on Wheels America. Every year, nearly 300 runners and walkers participate in March for Meals, as well as 60 to 80 volunteers.  In addition to raising additional funds to serve the Richland County seniors in need, this event raises awareness of the issues of senior poverty and food instability. 

Gala

One of our major annual fundraisers, our gala is held early in November each year. It features live music and dancing, an open bar and heavy hors d'oeuvres, and a silent auction. Sponsorship opportunities are available for this signature event, and donations for the auction are always welcome. 

Share the Love Holiday Campaign

This holiday campaign is held during November and December each year. By making a donation to Senior Resources in someone’s honor, you will provide meal delivery to the elderly in our community. For a $5 donation, a card will be sent to the recipient you choose informing them of the donation and wishing them a happy holiday. You will also receive an acknowledgement of your gift. It’s the gift that gives again.
