Support of the Golden Achievement Awards benefit the Senior Hunger Fund of the Rose Centers for Aging Well. Funds raised through the event directly benefit low-income seniors in our community by providing home-delivered meals and social contact.
Last year, Rose Centers for Aging Well delivered more than 178,000 meals to homebound seniors, who are unable to leave their homes without assistance, shop for food or prepare meals. An additional 51,705 hot meals were served in our community senior centers.
