Kinneret Council on Aging Readies for the 8 over 80 Gala

The Kinneret Council on Aging is in final preparation for the 2018 8 over 80 Gala to be held on Sunday, Feb. 25th, 2018.

Committee members Lynn Fenster, Carol Feuerman, Phyllis Kamanoff, Mollie Savage and Geanne Share along with Kinneret Director of Programming and Development Sharon Weil are hard at work finalizing what will be a grand evening. The event recognizes active, inspiring people who continue to make a difference through volunteerism and philanthropy to their community and family.

The honorees for the 2018 event are: Lillian Berkowitz, Doris Gilbert, Bette Ann Leider, Rosalind Levitt, Eva Ritt, Gerald Robison, Charles Schulman and Dick Weiner.

The 8 over 80 honorary dinner will be held in the Delaney Dining Room at Kinneret Apartments and will benefit 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.

For ticket and sponsorship information, contact Sharon Weil at 407-425-4537, ext. 211. KCOA is a nonprofit agency that provides ongoing programs and services to residents of Kinneret Apartments, a limited income independent living senior facility located in downtown Orlando.
