8th Annual High Tea & Hats

Sunday, April 19, 2015
See you at the Rosen Plaza Hotel!

7th Annual High Tea & Hats Recap

Thank you for supporting our High Tea & Hats event held on Sunday, May 18, 2014. Hundreds of stylishly dressed ladies and some very dapper gentlemen filled the Rosen Plaza Hotel ballroom and raised more than $41,000.

Silent auction items included theater and concert tickets, vacation cruises, romantic dinners, and weekend getaways. Seniors First presented the “Hats Off” award to Mr. Harris Rosen to recognize his significant contributions to Seniors First and the Central Florida community.

Heartfelt thanks to Mr. Rosen and our wonderful event sponsors, guests and volunteers for helping seniors live independently through the High Tea & Hats event. Special thanks to our emcee Lauren Rowe and our hat judges: Tuni Blackwelder, owner of Tuni Winter Park, Leslye Gale, Magic 107.7 morning show host, and Jeanette Scott, fashion blogger and creator of J’s Everyday Fashion.

Funds raised support our programs like Meals on Wheels and In-Home Care for clients such as Miss Gloria, who joined us for tea that day, to receive help with essential daily needs so that our clients are able to live with the dignity and independence they so deserve.

Be a Meals On Wheels Volunteer Driver

Approximately 300 volunteers are needed to deliver 5,020 meals each week in Orange County! The need for volunteers is growing every day, as more seniors turn to Meals On Wheels to help them remain independent and in their own homes. Most of our volunteers deliver meals one day a week, with routes that will take no longer than two hours to complete. Volunteer with your children or grandchildren! Meals On Wheels is a wonderful way to help teach responsibility and the importance of community service.

Create a Delivery Team

Adopt-A-Route” is a simple way for corporations, church groups, social and service clubs to give back to the community. Seniors First will work with your company or organization to create a tailored meal route that will support our seniors and promote team building. Those who “Adopt-A-Route” will take on the delivery requirements of one route, one day a week (Mon-Fri) by providing a team of two for no more than two hours (between 9am and noon).

For information on how to get started call Lorraine Shumaker at 407-615-8982.
