ElderSource 2019 Luminary Award

Congratulations to our 2019 Luminary Nominees:

With the help of the community, we’ve been able to identify and nominate individuals who are “leading lights” working in a myriad of jobs in the aging industry and deserve to be recognized for their contributions.

What is a Luminary?

Someone who is an inspiration to others; one who has achieved success in their chosen field, a leading light.

Luminary nominees and winners will be recognized at our our annual fundraising event, A Night with the Stars on Monday, October 28 at the Alhambra Dinner Theatre.  A Night with the Stars is an evening celebration honoring professional caregivers in the aging industry who go above and beyond in their daily service to seniors in the community. The event will feature a “Parade of Stars,” recognizing all of the nominees and the special presentations of the Luminary Awards and the Delores Barr Weaver Elder Advocate Award.

Congratulations to our 2019
