Seniors Ready to Set Sail for a Nautical Night
By Linette Young
All indications are that Seniors Night Out at the Fremont/Newark Hilton Hotel, a fundraiser benefitting the Tri-City senior community, on Friday September 23, 2011 will once again have record attendance. For many seniors, this 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 elder community.
Event organizers are thrilled to once again produce this event in the Tri-City community. A record number of volunteer escorts have also stepped forward helping to make this event a success; however, there is still a need for more. As an escort, you will be paired with a senior residing in the Tri-City area. You will pick them up from their home, attend the event, and drive them back home. The cost of an escort ticket is $50 (dinner included).
Since 1993, the City of Fremont Human Services Department and Tri City Elder Coalition have sponsored Seniors Night Out when community leaders, organizations and individuals celebrate seniors by escorting them for an evening of entertainment, good food and friendship. As the Coalition's annual fundraiser, proceeds benefit seniors in need and supports Pathways to Positive Aging projects.
Like many others, our fundraising efforts have been adversely affected by the sluggish economy so we appreciate any additional support from the community. To make a contribution toward this event or participate in the raffle for a chance to win a cruise, please do so today. We will be collecting funds to defray costs long after the event is concluded.
