ELDERSOURCE HOSTS A NIGHT WITH THE STARS GALA, SAT., JUNE 3rd EVENT TO RAISE FUNDS FOR NE FL SENIORS WITH CRITICAL NEEDS

2017 Delores Barr Weaver Elder Advocate Award Winner,  Dr. Kenneth A. Tannenbaum, to be honored 

ElderSource is hosting its 4th annual A Night with the Stars gala on Saturday, June 3 from 7 to 10 p.m., a fundraiser featuring a “Crooners, Cars & Cocktails” theme. WJCT Studios will be transformed into an elegant club atmosphere featuring the region’s best big bang orchestra, dancing and a light buffet presented by Blue Bamboo Restaurant. A Night with the Stars focuses on raising funds to support seniors in critical need and to provide resources and services to families and the community.

Devoted supporter for seniors, Dr. Kenneth A. Tannenbaum, has been named the 2017 Delores Barr Weaver Elder Advocate Award. He currently serves as chair of the Baptist AgeWell Institute Community Advisory Council, founder of the Coalition to End Senior Hunger in Northeast Florida and is a member of the ElderSource Institute Board.

“As an octogenarian myself, I have been blessed with so much and, frankly, it disturbs me a great deal to see people my age (and older and younger) living a life with limited quality—many of our elders need a great deal of what I’d regard as basic necessities; they deserve better,” said Tannenbaum. “I am pleased that I have been able to help in some small way and it is my hope that I can continue to do so for many more years,” he added.

The event is supported by the Delores Barr Weaver Forever Event Fund and sponsored by Swisher International, Florida Blue, Brooks Rehabilitation, Blue Bamboo, BDO, and Mutual of America.

ElderSource is diligent in empowering seniors, adults with disabilities and caregivers in Northeast Florida as they face the challenges of aging with dignity. By connecting them to useful resources and guiding them to solutions, ElderSource has become a popular starting point for those seeking answers. The agency proudly celebrates 44 years of service in Northeast Florida, covering Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, St. Johns and Volusia counties.

“Many seniors and caregivers call ElderSource looking for answers when they don’t know where to start,” said Linda Levin, Executive Director of ElderSource. “The vital information and resources we provide are pivotal in helping those individuals age with true independence and dignity.”

Tickets are $100 per guest and $1,200 for a reserved table of eight which includes a light buffet, big band entertainment, parking and elegant ambiance.
