Gift of Age Cabaret
On Friday, October 4, 2013, the Eldercare Foundation held its 6th annual “Gift of Age” Cabaret, honoring three Central New Yorkers striving to make a difference in the community through their work, volunteerism or service to older Americans. The event raised more than $67,000 in support of the Eldercare Foundation.
The 2013 honorees were:
- Charlotte “Chuckie” Holstein ~ Eldercare Lifetime Achievement Award
- Amelia Greiner ~ Eldercare Accomplished Professional Award
- Laboratory Alliance of Central New York, LLC ~ Eldercare Corporate Champion Award
“We hold this event in the hope of raising our community’s compassion for aging individuals and their families,” notes Anita P. Lombardi, Chair of the Eldercare Foundation Board of Directors. “By recognizing the exemplary contributions of our honorees, we raise awareness of the importance of caring about, and caring for, our community elders.”
Attendees at the event thoroughly enjoyed a cabaret featuring the “Piano Prince of New Orleans” Davell Crawford. Crawford, the grandson of 1950’s R&B artist James ‘Sugar Boy’ Crawford, has become a major force in American roots music, traditional jazz, gospel, funk and R&B. Singer, songwriter and Central New York’s Sammy Hall of Famer, Todd Hobin served as the evening’s Master of Ceremonies.
