January 26, 2018
The Kinneret Council on Aging, a nonprofit agency that provides ongoing programs and services to residents of Kinneret Apartments, has announced the honorees for their 2018, 8 over 80 Gala to be held on Sunday, Feb. 25th, 2018.
"We are once again thrilled with the support we have had from the community and were truly inspired by the number of outstanding individuals over the age of 80, who continue to contribute to our community and promote the Jewish tradition of Tikkun Olam," said Lynn Fenster, 8 over 80 co-chairperson. "We hope the community will join in honoring our '8 over 80' once again with a cocktail reception and dinner in the Kinneret dining room."
The honorees for the 2018 event are: Lillian Berkowitz, Doris Gilbert, Bette Ann Leider, Roz Levitt, Eva Ritt, Gerald Robison, Charles Schulman, and Dick Weiner.
"It is truly a privilege to recognize these amazing and dynamic individuals," said Sharon Weil, director of Programming and Development for KCOA. "These are active, inspiring people who still show a love and commitment to their community and family."
The 8 over 80 honorary dinner will be held in the Delaney Dining Room at Kinneret Apartments and will benefit the KCOA which provides programs for residents that are not included in the resident's monthly rent. These programs include onsite weekly exercise classes, cultural activities and holiday celebrations as well as excursions including trips to Publix, Walmart and area restaurants. KCOA also continues to fund the popular twice-monthly food pantry, which provides a bountiful grocery bag to residents at no cost. This program offers an array of healthy foods to residents, many who enjoy cooking their own meals. Currently over 120 residents are participating in this program.
