Event Description

WHAT: Inaugural Ageless Hall of Fame Celebration WHERE: Bridgewater Place, 205 Bridgewater Road, Knoxville, TN 37923 WHEN: Thursday, May 16, 2019. Doors open 11:45am. ABOUT THE AGELESS HALL OF FAME: Older adults set the bar for volunteering in East Tennessee but often go unnoticed in their efforts. This event was created to recognize and honor 16 individuals, age 60 or older, who demonstrate their care for their community and its citizens. These people are nominated by their communities. All nominations are reviewed and selected by a committee made up of each of the counties’ leaders and human service agencies that serve the East Tennessee community. WHO DOES THIS EVENT BENEFIT? Senior Citizens Home Assistance Service (SCHAS) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the quality of life for the elderly, persons with disabilities, and their families by providing accessible care and supportive services through compassionate personnel. SCHAS serves all the East Tennessee region. Unlike other care giving agencies, SCHAS offers financial aid, known as the sliding scale fee fund, to clients who need the services but cannot afford the full fee nor are eligible for government assistance. Through grants, fundraisers and support from the United Way, SCHAS can help those with the greatest need. All net proceeds from this event will go to benefit SCHAS clients who rely on the sliding scale fee fund. Nominations can be place on the event website - https://www.jotform.com/jpopek/ageless-hall-of-fame
