LiLY Legacies Awards Gala 2023
This year, the 2023 LiLY Legacies Awards Gala will be in tribute to Irene Zola, our Founder. She was a vital part of so many lives, working tirelessly for our community of elders. Please join us to raise a glass and remember her extraordinary life and legacy.
 

Zola said, “Caring for elderly seniors also helps families who do not live nearby and gives them a welcome peace of mind; we receive such expressions of gratitude from families all the time”

Lifeforce in Later Years

LiLY Legacies Awards Gala

November 6, 2023

Columbia University Low Library Rotunda

 

Celebrate Incredible Individuals and an Organization
 That Make Aging Better

 

With less than 2% of funds from the nations largest grant makers focused on charity serving aging adults and 25% of adults age 65 and older admitting to social isolation, Lifeforce in Later Years aims to bridge this gap by operating a nationally recognized model to help seniors age safely in their homes with access to volunteers who help them with basic but critical needs as well as companionship and cheer.  LiLY, achieves its mission by coordinating and directing a net work of caring volunteers in community resources toward the help of elderly seniors or committed to aging in the homes they love.

 

On November 6, Lifeforce in Later Years he affectionately known as LiLY, will be holding its 12th LiLY, legacies gala at the Columbia University Low Library Rotunda.  Each year, they look forward to celebrating three exceptional New Yorkers who make aging in
 New York better.

 

This year's gala will honor three exceptional individuals; Rachael Ray, American cooking and TV icon, business woman extraordinaire and philanthropist;   Dr. Richard Mayeaux, Neurologist-in-Chief at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center and Dr. Rafael Lantigua, Director, Office Of Community Service Programs and Professor of Medicine, Columbia University Vagelis College of Physicians and Surgeons.

 

LiLY was founded in 2009 by Zola, after witnessing the limitations of the care available to her mother who lived in a nursing home facility, Zola brought a group of neighbors together to consider how they might help their neighbors remain in their own apartments, even at advanced ages. Soon after launching a friendly visiting program, the volunteer-led group saw that a majority of neighbors over 80 years had no family caregiver options and that emotional, social, and community connections were invaluable to improving the quality of living alone in the city. Over time, individualized and deep-levels of care were complemented by social group programs and expansion into new neighborhoods. There are no fees for LiLY programs; rather, a committed group of staff, volunteers, local businesses, and medical partners who contribute to the work.

 

This year’s event features the nation’s wildly popular cook, and television personality, Rachael Ray. Ray will be celebrated for her impact on the quality of life at home and for her expansive humanitarian initiatives. Because of Ray, nutritious home-cooked meals are again emblematic of home life; numerous generations are empowered with the know-how and inspiration to enjoy cooking with their own families. Rachael Ray’s philanthropy extends beyond cooking to emergency food, shelter and needs response.

 

Among our three honorees, this year, two of them are pre-eminent neurologists working at the forefront of Alzheimer's research and treatment, and aging:

 

Dr. Richard P. Mayeaux, Neurologist-in-Chief at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center.

 

Dr. Rafael Lantigua, Director, Office of Community Service Programs and Professor of Medicine, Columbia University Vagelos College od Physicians and Surgeons.

 

This year is especially challenging for the LiLY organization as we lost our founder Irene Zola unexpectedly in August, after an illness.  There will be a warm tribute to her life and LiLY, at the event.
