46th Annual SeniorCare Valentine’s Day Breakfast Fundraiser Breakfast

SeniorCare Inc.will hold its annual Valentine’s Day Breakfast Fundraiser Breakfast at The Gloucester House, located 63 Rogers Street in downtown Gloucester on Friday, February 14, 2020, from 7:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.  Tickets are $15 per person and include a buffet breakfast. Tickets are available online at www.seniorcareinc.org or may be purchased at the door. Proceeds from the breakfast will benefit SeniorCare’s Meals on Wheels program.

SeniorCare’s Meals on Wheels program brings a daily meal right to the door of homebound elders, Monday through Friday. Menus are designed by nutrition experts to meet the needs of older adults and are prepared by a professional caterer.  In addition, homebound elders have a daily interaction with the delivery team—sometimes their only human contact that day.  SeniorCare serves lunch to more than 550 elders each day through the home-delivered meals program (Meals on Wheels) and the community dining program.  Annually, this means 175,000 meals served throughout SeniorCare’s service area of Beverly, Gloucester, Ipswich, Rockport, Topsfield, Essex, Manchester, Hamilton, and Wenham.

Sponsorship opportunities for the Breakfast are available at a variety of price points. For information about the breakfast or to become a sponsor, contact Paula Curley at 978-281-1750 x-560 or paula.curley@seniorcareinc.org.
