The Association of Generational Experts for Seniors (AGES) is accepting nominations for “Savvy Senior Citizens” through Sunday, August 31.
“Long Island is made up of so many wonderful seniors who have not only made but continue to make tremendous impact within our communities,” said Kevin Lawrence, AGES Chairman. “Each year, we are touched by the many families who take the time to nominate and look forward to casting that much deserved spotlight on their special seniors. We encourage everyone out there to vote for their senior and to join in this celebratory event.”
Each senior submitted will be considered a candidate for 2014’s Savvy Senior king and queen, who will be announced and crowned at AGES’ Fifth Annual Savvy Senior Day on Grandparents Day Sunday, September 7 at the Parker Jewish Institute in New Hyde Park from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
All nominated seniors will be publicly recognized, with this year’s king and queen receiving gift certificates toward professional studio portraits.
“It’s to honor somebody who has contributed to someone’s life significantly. It doesn’t matter what they do, whether it’s a civic service or a contribution to an organization, it’s in the eyes of the nominee. Everyone is a winner just by just being nominated,” said Lawrence.
In 200 typed words or less, individuals can submit their favorite senior, along with a photo or video, to: AGES Savvy Senior Award, AGES P.O. Box 774, Melville, NY 11747. Nominations are also accepted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or directly through AGES’ Website, www.agesresourcenetwork.com. For details, call 631-630-9498 or 516-617-5176.
