Thank You Grand Gala 2017

Moonlight in Paris

With almost 300 attendees, the Grand Gala 2017: Moonlight in Paris on February 25, 2017 was a wonderful celebration of the Senior Center’s programming, travel, and our local community. Many thanks to those who sponsored the event, contributed raffle prizes, and made generous donations to Fund Healthy Aging at the Senior Center. Thank you also to all those who attended, purchased raffle tickets, and advertised in the program. We are especially grateful to everyone who volunteered their time to bring the event to life. All of your contributions combined raised over $165,000 to benefit the Senior Center and its programs in the coming year. Through your efforts, the Gala also raised awareness about how the Senior Center provides our community with opportunities for healthy, active aging – every day. Thank you!
