MILWAUKEE–Did you know that there are more than 153,000 adults over the age of 60 in Milwaukee County?
Interfaith Older Adult Programs provides endless amounts of support, care and resources to help older adults remain in their homes while staying active and connected to our communities.
We are excited to announce our Ninth Annual Pearls of Wisdom Benefit Dinner being held on Thursday, May 8, at Pier WIsconsin at Discovery World, 500 N. Harbor Dr., from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. This event is vital to our ability to continue providing the services and support our senior neighbors and their caregivers need. Older adults’ needs range from a daily safety “check-in” phone calls, rides to a doctor’s appointments, help with snow removal or yard work, to caregivers visiting them at home.
“The Pearls of Wisdom event is an event that aims to inspire,” said, Felice Green, public relations and marketing director for Interfaith. “We want to give older adults and caregivers an opportunity to know their unique talents and gifts are needed to help grow and strengthen the communities we live in.”
Interfaith is always looking for new sponsors. Sponsorship helps us to ensure the success of this event and shows the community’s commitment to support older adults, caregivers, families, friends and neighbors that do so much for others as they age.
“Our annual event invites the community to celebrate our work, get to know us a little better, and support our efforts,” said Green. This year guests will enjoy Emcee and Auctioneer Thelma Sias, VP of Local Affairs for We Energies, great entertainment and lots of fun.
