District 4 Newsletter
I am honored to have been asked to again serve as Chair of the The Yolo Healthy Aging Alliance for 2019. The Yolo Healthy Aging Alliance (YHAA) is a nonprofit organization that serves as a unified voice for older adults and caregivers in Yolo County. Our mission is to promote the well-being of older adults through education, collaboration and advocacy .
As the Yolo Healthy Aging Alliance is classified as a 501(c)3, it is not government funded. This means we rely completely on private donations and grants. Next month we will be hosting our annual 2019 Spring Fundraiser and Superstars Celebration!

The fundraiser will be held on Sunday April 7th from 4 pm to 7 pm at the Odd Fellows Hall at 415 2nd Street in Davis. Tickets sell for just $35. This year's theme is Aging in Action and the event will certainly deliver plenty of action as well as delicious farm fresh food, incredible music, terrific raffle prizes and the best of company. Your contribution allows us to continue serving the community through 2019 and beyond.
In 2018, we helped advance the expansion of adult day healthcare services and supported long-term care reform. We held numerous public education events on Alzheimer's Disease and dementia, conducted a Fall Prevention Workshop, and partnered with other California organizations to hold the Senior's Rally at the State Capitol.

The Yolo Healthy Aging Alliance's plans for the future include efforts to increase affordable housing options for older adults and educating Yolo County adults about the need to plan ahead for long-term care, financing, and later life choices. We also plan to address the needs of rural communities for access to health, social, and long-term care services.
You can purchase tickets and get sponsorship information for the Yolo Healthy Aging Alliance Spring Fundraiser via their website which is linked below. A link is included for directions to the venue as well.
We hope to see you in April!
