ST. LOUIS — Nominations are now being accepted for seniors across the metropolitan area to be recognized at the St. Andrew’s Resources for Seniors System’s 2017 Ageless Remarkable St. Louisans Gala.
Each year, the event honors outstanding St. Louis area older adults, age 75+, for their many incredible contributions on the job front, and in areas such as philanthropy and volunteer service. Nominations are being accepted now through March 10, via the St. Andrew’s website at www.standrews1.com.
A printable version of the nomination form is also available via the website and may be completed and mailed to the St. Andrew’s offices at: 6633 Delmar Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63130. Seniors from across the entire St. Louis metropolitan area and Metro East are eligible for recognition at the 2017 gala, which will take place Saturday, Oct. 28, 2017.
The Ageless Remarkable St. Louisans Gala continues to play a critical role in helping to reshape the face of aging in the region, while also transforming, enhancing and improving the image of older adults. Over the past 15 years, more than 300 seniors have been recognized for their amazing contributions well past the traditional age of retirement. The annual gala has also raised more than $3.8 million dollars since 2003 to help meet the needs of low-income and at-risk seniors in the St. Louis area.
Said Mary Alice Ryan, president and CEO of the St. Andrew’s Resources for Seniors System: “Over the last decade-and-a-half, we’ve had the opportunity to showcase the incredible lives of so many diverse and outstanding area seniors who are demonstrating how truly fulfilling life can be after age 75. And, as we look forward to recognizing our 15th class of amazing honorees, we encourage individuals from across the St. Louis Metro area to nominate the many inspirational philanthropists, volunteers, business people and other notable seniors who continue to make a difference in our community.”
