TRANSCRIPT

  • Dear Friends, Each year at this time, we reach out to corporate leaders like yourself to join AGE of Central Texas as an Official Sponsor and reach thousands of Central Texans who share in your companys commitment and desire to improve the quality of life for older adults and caregivers in our community. AGEs co-founder, Bert Kruger Smith, left us with a vision of aging as a shared journey of triumph. Yet almost daily we can find headlines and news reports that sound anything but triumphant:

    U.S. Faces Explosion of Senior Citizens -PBS News Skyrocketing Alzheimer's rates to burden world's caregivers -CBS News Going broke caring for aging parents -New York Times Austin not ready for 'silver tsunami' of poor seniors -Austin American Statesman

    We cant stop aging. There is no cure. In his book, How We Age, geriatric psychiatrist Dr. Marc E. Agronin writes, The relationship we establish with our elderly, and with their loved ones and caregivers by extension, ultimately trumps the agony of uncertainty. Thats what our organization is about. Through each one of our programs, we work to build relationships with aging adults and those who care for them. By joining forces with AGE, you stand beside older adults and caregivers. Together, we take on the challenges of aging and share in the journey. The annual AGE Awards Dinner is our premier event celebrating the achievements of outstanding individuals and organizations that have helped improve the quality of life for older adults and caregivers. Your involvement as a sponsor of this event supports a critical lifeline to our elders and helps us to achieve our mission of tackling the challenges of aging with expert solutions. Please consider the enclosed sponsorship guide as a place for us to begin. Contact me at 512-600-9283 or donate@ageofcentraltx.org to discuss ways we can partner together. Thank you in advance for your consideration. Sincerely, Lora Hollingsworth Director of Development & Outreach
