Join Elderfriends for our second annual “Better with Age” wine tasting benefit May 22 from 7-9:30pm at E.B. Foote winery in Burien. The event features a silent auction, music by a local jazz trio, and food by Precise Catering. Each $35 ticket helps Elderfriends train volunteers to be paired with isolated older adults for friendly visits and run programs like a popular Thanksgiving meal delivery service.

ElderFriends’ mission is to relieve isolation and loneliness among elders through friendly visits (sometimes known as “Adopt-A-Grandparent”) and help older adults remain independent and avoid life in isolation or nursing homes.

Elderhealth Northwest and Elderfriends have both seen their budgets shrink significantly due to the economic downturn, just as more seniors are finding themselves in need. The money raised through “Better with Age” helps Elderfriends train and match volunteers for pairings with older adults and other social services.

Featured items in the silent auction include dinner at Etta’s, brunch for four at Portage Bay Café, Northwest Film Forum passes, a night at the Mariott Waterfront, items from Fossil and JL Designs, original artwork and more.

Elderfriends is a non-profit, volunteer based program of ElderHealth Northwest that provides companionship, outreach, and advocacy to isolated older adults throughout Seattle and King County.
