    Ossorio Fall of Giving

    Dining for a Cause October 3rd, 2017 5:30pm-8:00pm

    Aging Matters and Ossorio’s are working together to raise funds for seniors in our community by enjoying an evening meal together. Proceeds from the event will support our Meals on Wheels and the Retired Senior Volunteer Program. Together they serve 1,773 homebound seniors annually through the 574 volunteers who deliver a meal, provide a safety check and a friendly hello.

    Let’s enjoy a meal together and celebrate a community of volunteers that serve 195,918 meals a year to the frailest of Brevard’s citizens.

    We will have staff and information on site to answers any questions you may have about the agency and how you can get involved.

    Passport to Wines Around the World ~ A 50th Anniversary Celebration

    SOLD OUT!!!

    Thank you for your continued support.

    Established in 1965, Aging Matters in Brevard celebrates its Golden Anniversary as the Lead Agency for Senior Services in Brevard County serving in excess of 5,400 seniors each year. We invite you to help Aging Matters in Brevard celebrate its 50th Anniversary on April 18, 2015, with our signature fundraiser “Passport to Wines Around the World ~ A 50th Anniversary Celebration.” 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.

    Launched in 2008 by Miller & Hurt Financial Group to benefit the programs of Aging Matters in Brevard, proceeds from the 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.

    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. This year will be one to remember.

    Your support will help our Brevard aging community for years to come.
