Arts for the Aging Announces

the 22nd Anniversary Benefit Gala

at Washington Golf and Country Club on

October 8, 2010


Dateline - Washington, D.C. - The 22nd Anniversary Arts for the Aging Benefit Gala will be held on Friday, October 8, 2010 from 6:45 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. at the Washington Golf and Country Club.  The Gala will include a sit-down dinner, live and silent auctions, and a program highlighting 22 years of service to older adults throughout the region. It will feature the presentation of AFTA’s third honorary Lolo Sarnoff Award to performance artist and master teacher Jerome Barry for his outstanding vision and creativity. Dr. Joyce S. Hagel-Silverman and Mrs. Joan Polk are the Chairs of this year’s Gala.  A private performance for VIPs and sponsors at 6:00 p.m. will precede the event.

The AFTA Gala draws support from a diversity of Washingtonians, including public officials, and members of the congressional, diplomatic, social, arts, and medical communities. Proceeds from the Gala are for the benefit of Arts for the Aging’s mission, which promotes the philosophy that physical and cognitive activity, especially in the arts, is key to healthy aging. Research shows that the arts have a positive impact on mental and physical health, longevity, and the overall quality of life in seniors.

AFTA is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization chartered in Maryland and founded in 1988 by nonagenarian and sculptress Lolo Sarnoff.  It provides a participatory curriculum of visual, performing, literary and intergenerational arts outreach programs, as well as cultural outings and museum visits. AFTA programs give seniors innovative tools to experience constructive, dignified, positive, and healthful living. Special outreach is focused on non-profit adult day care centers and nursing homes serving disadvantaged seniors living with a broad range of age-related impairments such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. The diverse AFTA program underscores an imperative mission to enhance the quality of life of the fastest growing age-group in the U.S. today -- seniors.

Advanced registration for the 22nd Anniversary Benefit Gala is required by October 1.  Event details and admission including levels of sponsorship are available on the web.
