Legacy Senior Communities hosted their annual Yes! Luncheon on Nov. 19. Journalist and author Jane Pauley acted as the guest speaker, with more than 500 people in attendance.
In total, the event raised more than $400,000 for the communities, benefiting the residents’ financial-assistance funds for the Legacy Preston Hollow-Dallas Home for the Jewish Aged and The Legacy at Home.
Molly Bogen, president and CEO of The Senior Source, was presented with the first-ever Carmen Miller Michael Award.
The event also featured a silent auction, including jewelry, sports packages, and dining specials.
“My dad died of Alzheimer’s five and a half years ago,”co-chair Elaine Pearlman said. “The elderly are often overlooked, and it’s important that we don’t forget about them.”
Legacy is unique in its endeavor to provide financial assistance to many of the elderly and aging population.
“There are always people who need financial aid,” chair Carol Aaron said. “The community is aware and saying ‘yes.'”
