Congratulations to ElderSource Luminary Nominees!

We received over 40 nominations for the Luminary Award. Thank you to everyone who took time to recognize these special people working in the aging industry. We appreciate their hard work and the impact they have on our seniors in the community. The nominees listed all exhibited qualities of leadership, passion and dedicated service in serving seniors and being a leading light to others.

Join us to celebrate the Luminary nominees and more!

A Night with the Stars: Monday, October 29

All individuals nominated will be designated as HONOREES and will be recognized at the event. A Luminary Award will be presented to one person in each of the job categories from each of the work environments. For example: A Luminary Award could potentially be presented to a case worker, maintenance and dietitian who work for an assisted living facility. This format allows for many individuals to be recognized for their work.

The Nominators and HONOREES are invited and encouraged to attend the event on Monday, October 29 from 6 to 9 pm at The Alhambra Dinner Theater on Beach Boulevard. Dress to impress. The attire for the evening is business attire.  Tickets are $75 per person for all those attending including the nominees. Click here to purchase tickets
