Celebrate the roaring 20’s at this year’s 14th Annual Older Persons’ Commission’s (OPC) Charity Event on Friday, April 29 at the Royal Park Hotel. Benefiting OPC’s Meals on Wheels, A Gatsby Gala will feature an exquisite dinner by the Royal Park Hotel chefs, and dancing with the amazing Henry Ford Big Band. The event is being presented by Sanctuary at Bellbrook.
Something new this year will be “The Great Grab Bag” ,OPC’s unique spin on the traditional raffle, giving guests the chance to take home one-of-a-kind gifts. “The Great Grab Bag is a great way to go home with an amazing gift and give back to Meals on Wheels,” said Alysa Hunton, OPC Development Manager. “Each bag will have a value of at least $50. Many of the items will be worth much more giving each person the opportunity to win big!”
This year’s Charity Event hopes to raise $100,000 for OPC’s Meals on Wheels. The Meals on Wheels program at OPC provides home delivered and site meals to homebound or disabled seniors, and served a record number of 116, 151 meals to area seniors in 2015.
