There are many ways to judge an event a success. Obviously, when it is a fundraiser, a successful event raises more money than it did last year. It also would attract more people and hopefully garner more support for the organization. But all accounts, this year’s 8 over 80 was a tremendous success! We anticipate to raise almost $60,000 and we had just over 220 people attend. This is an increase over any event previously held.
What is wonderful about our 8 over 80 event, is it is not just about raising money. I love the way we have the opportunity to honor some amazing seniors and showcase their talents, their commitment to their community and their love of their family.
I know there is no one secret to longevity. But I know that this year’s honorees showed us that laughter, family, and love are what is most important in life. It was such a pleasure getting to know Morris, Helen, Avie, Harvey, Ron, Betty, Sandy, and Mark. Check out our 2016 8 over 80 Photo Album. Check back for a link to our video produced by A Magic Moment that tells the stories of these amazing people.
