Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Senior Services hosts the 30th Annual Soirée, a black-tie Gala Dinner and Auction, on Saturday, November 1, at the Museum of Flight. The silent auction and reception begin at 6pm, followed at 7:30pm by a performance by Sensible Shoes, the Seattle Women’s Chorus pop and vocal jazz ensemble, dinner, and live auction.

The evening’s emcee is KIRO 7 anchor and reporter Monique Ming Laven, who is also a volunteer driver for Senior Services’ transportation program. Auctioneer for the evening is Stephen Kilbreath.

“Our Soiree is an opportunity for the community to provide support (while having a great time) to make a difference in the lives of older adults and those who care about them throughout King County,” said Paula L. Houston, CEO of Senior Services. “From the frail, homebound elders to healthy, active Baby Boomers, our programs provide older adults with information, food, transportation, legal advice and more.”

More than 100 items will be available in the silent auction, from weekend escapes to high-tech gadgets. Highlights of the live auction include international vacation getaways, group wine tasting experiences, and unique culinary feasts.

Tickets are $200 per person and are available online. For more information, contact Brittany Blue206-727-6261.

The 2014 Platinum Sponsor for Soirée is Swedish Medical Center. Benefactor Sponsors are AAA Washington, Regence and Symetra.

Proceeds from Soirée help fund Senior Services’ programs that support older adults throughout King County, including Information / Assistance, a one-stop phone line for resources; Meals on Wheels, Community Dining; Volunteer Transportation; Hyde Shuttles; EnhanceFitness and Enhance Wellness; Minor Home Repair; Caregiver Advocates; Senior Rights Assistance; Statewide Health Insurance Benefits Advisors (SHIBA); and seven senior centers.
