Celebrating 50 Years, Embarking on the Next 50
November 14, 2017
November 3 was a special night in the history of Senior Resources. We hosted the Golden Age Gala, a celebration of our 50th anniversary. It was the grand finale in a year-long series of events meant to celebrate our proud history of serving the Midlands’ seniors, and to raise awareness of the needs of the elderly in our community.
The gala featured delicious food and drinks, live music, dancing and a silent auction. We honored television personality Joe Pinner (aka Mr. Knowzit) for the many ways he has supported our agency and advocated for seniors throughout his career. And the evening included plenty of fellowship and conversation between our staff, board members, volunteers and supporters. Check out our photo album from the evening.
While we all had a wonderful time together, we did not forget the reason underlying the festivities. We came together because we want to continue and expand our mission of supporting the seniors in our community who are in need. As the Baby Boomer generation continues to age, we know the needs will continue to grow in the coming years. There will be more seniors in need of meal delivery service. Of assistance within their homes. Of transportation to medical appointments. Of companionship.
Through the generosity of our sponsors, donors, and those who attended the gala and bid on auction items, the Golden Age Gala raised more than $80,000. That will go a long way toward supporting local seniors with the services they need to remain healthy and independent.
We believe the Golden Age Gala was just the starting point for a renewed sense of purpose and dedication among our staff and supporters. We are embarking on our next 50 years with new ideas, creative energy and a determination to meet the needs of our elderly neighhors, whatever the challenges. We hope you’ll join us in this important work.Back to All News & Blog
