Escorts needed for Seniors Night Out
Submitted By Asha Chandra
Since 1993, the City of Fremont Human Services Department and the Tri City Elder Coalition have sponsored Seniors Night Out. It is a time when community leaders, organizations and individuals celebrate seniors by escorting them for an evening out which includes entertainment, good food and friendship. This event is the Coalition's annual fundraiser and proceeds will benefit seniors in need, as well as support Pathways to Positive Aging projects.
This year, Seniors' Night Out will be held Friday September 23, 2011 from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the Newark Hilton. The theme is a "Nautical Night." Tickets cost $55.
Seniors are registered but more escorts are needed. As an escort, you will be paired with a senior residing in the Tri-City area. You will collect them from their home, attend the event and drive them back home. Please register as an escort by September 6.
For some, it is their only night out for an elegant dinner and dance. It's a great evening of fabulous food, fun and laughter, all the while supporting our Tri-City senior community. The cost of an escort ticket is $50 (dinner included).
To become an escort and/or register to attend the event, contact Linette Young at (510) 818-9888 or SeniorsNightOut@comcast.net.
