Please join us as we kick up our heels at The Ruby Slipper Event, our annual gala celebrating SASI's two core programs - Home Care Services and Senior Connections - which empower older adults to remain independent and in their own homes.
This event will take place at a NEW fabulous location: the Wisteria Room in the Halim Time & Glass Museum. Join us for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres with open bar and silent auction followed by a seated dinner, program and a live auction with awesome prizes.
We also have a very special offering for attendees: private access to view the museum collection for one hour prior to the event. There are only 8 tickets available, they will go fast and can only be purchased online.
Halim Time & Glass Museum Sunday, October 28 6:00 - 9:30 PM.
Our 2018 Ruby Slipper Speaker is Dr. Emily Rogalski, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Northwestern University.
Dr. Rogalski will speak about The Secrets of SuperAgers: How Some of our Oldest Seniors are Living Longer, Healthier, and More Vibrant Lives.
Below are descriptions of just two of our unique live auction packages that will be offered (along with other surprises) at the event only. However everyone can enter to win the raffle drawings offered– you need not be present to win.
