Rat Pack-era celebrated at ElderSource gala

“A Night with the Stars” was the theme of the recent gala that gathers supporters of ElderSource and Friends of ElderSource. The nonprofit acts as a resource for those living with age-related difficulties and disabilities, many requiring assistance and ‘hands-on’ help.

With the goal to empower individuals to live independent, dignified lives, the agency supports seniors who are seeking resources and assistance to live life to their fullest. Many seniors in our community, over 60 million living within a seven-county service area, depend upon the guidance and provisions provided by programs offered by the institution. Some are close to having their lights turned off, many need repairs to their homes, and many require meal assistance and delivery of resources to live day-to-day.

Support from the local community and donors help to deliver these much-needed services. Special thanks went out to Senator Aaron Bean and Emcee Nicky Kimbleton for sharing their talents alongside the Crescendo Amelia Big Band.

Dr. Kenneth Tannenbaum of Avondale was awarded the 2017 Delores Barr Weaver Elder Advocate Award. “It’s overwhelming and I’m very flattered,” said Tannenbaum, who plans to maintain his advocacy for the aging in Northeast Florida.
