Senior Moments Gala Set for August 25th

Jefferson Council on Aging (JCOA) is gearing up for its 7th Annual Senior Moments gala Saturday evening, August 25, 2018 at Chateau Golf and Country Club in Kenner. 

This year our guests will enjoy Senior Moments featuring the local band Lost in the 60’s with music featuring The Beatles and the Beach Boys. Savory cuisine, an exclusive patron party, an open bar and an extensive auction line up will be highlights.  Our featured local artist is Joyce LaPorte. Her painting, Royal Street, will be featured on our invitation and in our auction.  We thank local metal sculptor, Hernan Caro who will donate his original work to our top level sponsors. Look out for Caro’s work in our live auction.  We are proud to have one of our new board members, Claudia Shabetai, as our Event Chair.

We invite you to help Jefferson Council on Aging further its mission as a sponsor, patron, or gala guest.  Through our Senior Moments event, we have found a way to create awareness and raise funds to ensure our seniors can live with dignity in their own homes.
