Senior Prom: Sponsor a Senior Citizen

Hello,
Thank you for reading our campaign! We appreciate you!

Can you Sponsor a Senior to attend AngelaCARES’ 8th Annual Senior Citizens Prom? Your sponsorship costs $40, yes $40!!!

We are having a prom for 400 seniors to attend!  

Providing an opportunity for our seniors to get out of the house, socialize with others, and enjoy themselves is essential to helping them maintain a healthy lifestyle and live life to the fullest. Unfortunately, as seniors aged, the lack of socialization comes into play. The two most pressing obstructions seniors are met with when trying to maintain a healthy social life, are availability and accessibility. How many events do you know of that are planned for your Senior Loved One? AngelaCARES Inc. challenges these obstructions by hosting social events. This year, we are hosting our 8th Annual Senior Citizen Prom to take place at Saint Peter’s University Mac Mahon Student Union Building, 47 Glenwood Avenue, Jersey City, NJ, Friday, May 24, 2019 from 6:00 pm until 10:00 pm.

The world we live in today provides us with various ways to extend our lives, from the food we eat, to the growth of science. They say 60 is the new 50 and it’s true, humans are living longer than they used to. Rush University Medical Center states:

“Social activity has long been recognized as an essential component of healthy aging, but now we have strong evidence that it is also related to better everyday functioning and less disability in old age,” said lead researcher Bryan James, PhD, postdoctoral fellow in the epidemiology of aging and dementia in the Rush Alzheimer's Disease Center. “The findings are exciting because social activity is potentially a risk factor that can be modified to help older adults avoid the burdens of disability.”

Our prom allows seniors to socialize, get dressed, get out of the house and DANCE!!!!! 

Your name will be displayed in our thank you communication and during the night, so that the seniors know that you helped make their prom night special! 

Thank you!
Forever care,
Team AngelaCARES
