Essence of Life Awards and Charity Auction
It was a glorious day on Sunday, March 20th at the Southwestern Yacht Club. This year we celebrated 42 years of ElderHelp supporting seniors to live independently and with dignity in their homes. In 2015, ElderHelp impacted the lives of over 5,500 vulnerable seniors who needed access to healthcare, transportation, or simply to hear a friendly voice over the phone. Our dedicated donors, volunteers, community partners and staff work together to build a community where all are loved and supported. These awards allow ElderHelp to recognize outstanding individuals, businesses and organizations whose contributions truly capture the Essence of Life.
