Kinneret accepting nominations for '8 over 80'


The Kinneret Council on Aging will proudly pay tribute to eight individuals over the age of 80 who have made significant contributions to the Jewish and Central Florida community on Sunday, March 1, 2015.

“The 8 over 80 event really resonates with our mission of the Kinneret Council on Aging and the inspiring stories we hear about seniors who contribute to our community through leadership, activism, altruism and philanthropy”, said Neal Blaher, president of the board for the Kinneret Council on Aging.

“This year we are honoring those who have made our community feel like a family by promoting the Jewish tradition of tikkun olam,” said Faye Novick, chairperson of the annual event. “We hope the community will join in honoring our 8 Over 80 with a traditional Jewish holiday meal.”

This year’s event will once again be held in the Delaney Dining Room located at Kinneret Apartments. The new in-house chef, Jocelyn Faulkner, will be overseeing the preparation of the meal in the recently named “Nanny and Papa’s Kitchen” in honor of Dick and Dottie Appelbaum.

Nomination forms are available on the Kinneret Apartments website at http://www.kinneretapartments.com or can be obtained by calling 407-425-4537. Individuals may nominate more than one person.

The Kinneret Apartments are the Jewish community’s twin residence towers for low-income senior citizens located in downtown Orlando. Funds raised at this event will subsidize the hot meal program for the residents of Kinneret. Each day, Kinneret Council on Aging spends over $300 to provide meals and services to the residents of Kinneret Apartments.
