We extend sincere thanks to all who participated in our event with PEAPN on June 15th, WORLD Elder Abuse Awareness Day. We have almost reached our goal of raising $10,000 as we are at $9400 with a few dollars still trickling in ! These funds are dedicated to providing assistance to victims of elder abuse. Thank you to all who have contributed.
It was a perfect sunny day with some walkers (not enough), great speeches and 40 colorful and informative exhibitors.
Special thanks to Gary & Annette for the Latin Dancing demo and Cha-Cha training; and Tara Brazier of Link2Success for her yoga warm-up;
