Now Accepting Nominations for 2021 Seniors Who Rock

What makes a senior a Senior Who Rocks? 

Our honorees are people who are at least 70 years old, and they are still active, working or volunteering and adding a value and vibrancy to our community.  They are, in other words, inspirational.

To nominate an inspirational senior to be considered for 2021 Seniors Who Rock, please submit the completed form along with supporting information.  For the health of our honorees and guests, honorees will be invited to share their insights and motivation via recorded video, during  our virtual event on August 11, 2021.

While most people who seek Pro Seniors’ help are experiencing challenges associated with limited income, a health crisis, or even abuse, neglect or exploitation, we recognize that aging is also a time for triumph and celebration. Seniors Who Rock is an opportunity to promote positive images of aging by highlighting the insights that come with experience and a giving heart.

Join us in promoting positive images of aging with your sponsorship Seniors Who Rock 2021.  Learn more about sponsorship opportunities here.

In August of 2020 we celebrated virtually with our Seniors Who Rock and guests.  Watch a recording of our 2020 Seniors Who Rock
