“DeLuca’s has been a tremendous supporter of our programs through the years and we are very grateful,” said Joan Lowry of the Lorain Senior Center. “The event is very popular. This year we put out ten extra tables.”

DSC_5719-50All proceeds from ticket sales go directly to the North Ridgeville Senior Center and the Lorain County Office on Aging. These two organizations assist seniors in North Ridgeville and throughout Lorain County in a variety of essential and recreational capacities. Their programs include transportation, meals-on-wheels, socialization and supportive services.

The Senior Center is located at 7327 Avon Belden Road and the Office on Aging is at 320 Gateway Blvd. N. in Elyria and 4575 Lake Road in Sheffield Lake.

The event is generously sponsored by certified elder law attorney David A. Myers of Fauver, Keyse, Walker & Donovan.
