Highlighting and recognizing Kent County older adults and the important role they play in our community continues to be a major goal for Senior Neighbors. We have countless individuals over 60 in Kent County who positively impact our community every day. Whether it be through business excellence, caregiving, or other extraordinary efforts, this population is an important part of the fabric of our community.
Through sponsorship, individual reservations, and event contributions, the 16 Over 60 Awards Gala will continue to provide support for Senior Neighbors and its variety of programs serving Kent County older adults living independently.
