  • Passport to Wines Around the World Welcomes New Host

    We are thrilled to announce that B.W. “Bernie” and LaVonn Simpkins will be this year’s hosts of the 10th Annual Passport to Wines Around the World.

    Proceeds from this signature fundraising event support the Meals on Wheels Program, Seniors at Lunch, In-home Personal Care, the Sunflower House, Caregiver Support and Respite Care, Transportation for Seniors and Veterans, and Volunteer Recruitment; all services that help seniors remain living in their own homes and avoiding long-term care placement.

    B.W. “Bernie” and LaVonn Simpkins and Aging Matters in Brevard invite you to help serve seniors in Brevard County by supporting our signature fundraiser on Saturday, March 25, 2017. The event will be held from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. at the Space Coast Convention Center (Holiday Inn, 520 & I-95), 301 Tucker Lane, Cocoa, FL 32926.

    The evening promises to be filled with tempting hors d’oeuvres, distinctive wines, enjoyable entertainment, balloon pops, a live auction, and much more! The event will feature a live auction with auctioneer Sheriff Wayne Ivey, culinary creations by The Kitchen, special guest chefs and wine curated by Florida Wine and Spirits. Your support will help our Brevard aging community for years to come.

    Thank you again for your support and enthusiasm for helping Brevard seniors.
