)-- The Jewish Housing Council Foundation is calling all nonprofit organizations and residents to help nominate eight worthy volunteers who are over 80-years-old for a special honor.
Eight Over Eighty is to be a celebration of the gems of Sarasota/Manatee’s senior population who have exhibited in the past and continue to show leadership, activism, altruism and/or philanthropy. The honorees will be people who continue to participate actively in the community and defy the stereotypes — people who just won’t slow down. They are the folks the rest of see as role models.
Nominations are now being accepted. Nominees must be over 80, serve as a role model for people of all ages, and have dedicated themselves to the betterment of the community.
Winners will be honored at a brunch on Nov. 4 at Michael’s On East.
For a nomination form, contact Denise Cotler, Director of Development of the Jewish Housing Council Foundation at (941) 377-0781, ext. 404 or email her at email@example.com.
