Now celebrating our 10th Anniversary, Meals on Wheels Orange County’s Senior Care Hero Awards™ celebrates the unsung heroes in the senior industry - from seniors to veterans, physicians to caregivers, to volunteers and family with a heart for seniors.
The awards Gala will be held at the Grove of Anaheim, on Saturday, October 17th at 5:30pm.
Last year's event drew 620 guests, whose generosity helped raise $280,000, providing thousands of meals and loving contact to at-risk seniors. The event received coverage from radio, cable TV, KTLA, print media such as the OC Register, Sunset magazine Senior Reporter, Newport Beach Life Style, and many social media venues.
All proceeds will benefit Meals on Wheels Orange County, who has been providing the Meals on Wheels program and other supportive services for at-risk seniors for over 50 years!
We are the largest non-profit Meals on Wheels and senior nutrition provider in Orange County. Our services include case management and in-home services, Adult Day Health Care programs, Care Management services to reduce hospital admissions and readmissions and our Friendly Visitor program which reduces loneliness and isolation. We want our community to share our vision of a world that honors people throughout life and engage in our mission to nourish the wellness, purpose and dignity of seniors and their families.
The public is invited to honor their dedicated and innovative heroes by nominating and voting online for the senior care professionals and senior supporters of their choice. Nominations and voting are open online from June 1 to August 31, 2020, and award recipients will be announced the evening of the event.
The event's Academy of Leaders, comprised of highly-regarded leaders and luminaries in the field of senior care, will select the final 2020 Senior Care Hero Award recipients, with the restriction that no Leader will be allowed to vote in a category that includes a member of his or her organization.
