The Senior Adult Activities Center of Montgomery County is hosting its second annual Corks & Forks fundraiser, a Tasting to Benefit Montco SAAC on Thursday, February 28th from 6-9 PM at Cedarbrook Country Club. The Montco nonprofit will partner local restaurants and beverage vendors for an evening of food, drink, music, and fun to ensure that its three Meals on Wheels programs, two senior centers, and inter-generational art center can continue to serve thousands of older adults across the region annually.
The senior-centric nonprofit empowers seniors to live full, meaningful lives by providing to crucial, individualized services such as home delivered meals, educational programming, affordable fitness classes, volunteer opportunities, and access to social workers in an inclusive, welcoming environment. This approach allows older adults to remain comfortable, independent, and more involved in their community at every age.
“Montco SAAC depends on support from the communities that we serve in order to guarantee vital services for the older adults who rely on them” says Whitney Lingle, the Executive Director of Montco SAAC. “Events like Corks & Forks help provide us with the funding our organization needs, especially when unforeseen costs arise, such as the flooding that our Norristown center experienced this summer. After an especially strong thunderstorm, we had to get our dining room floor completely redone, which was not an inexpensive process.”
The organization is excited to once again partner with local favorites such as Five Saints Distillery, Haymaker Meadery, Boardroom Spirits, and Bernie’s of Glenside for delicious samplings of food and drink. Live tunes will also be provided and exciting auction items from local businesses will be up for bid.
Tickets to Corks & Forks are available here for $75 and at either Montco SAAC location (45 Forest Ave, Ambler PA 19002 or 536 George St Norristown PA 19401).
