Enjoy cocktails with the dolphins at Brookfield Zoo

May 28, 2012 by  

Solutions for Care is celebrating its 40th anniversary with the Dinner, Disco & Dolphins Gala at Brookfield Zoo on June 15, beginning at 5:30 pm. Tickets are $125 with proceeds going towards support for Solutions for Care’s programs for the elderly.

The gala will feature music, dancing, a silent auction, the chance to have “cocktails with dolphins”, a “sunset Safari Tour”, a sit down dinner, and an open bar. Business from the area, including nearby Lyons, will be donating items suitable for the silent auction. Printing companies in the area are also likely to be providing the program and banner printing services for the event to highlight sponsors.

There are sponsorships available from $400 to $10,000. Depending on their sponsorship level, sponsors will receive a mention in the event program, be listed on the Solutions for Care website, have a sign displayed at various areas of the event, be mentioned at the event, or be recognized on the gala banner. Local businesses can also buy ad space in the event program for $80 or $100.

With a rapidly aging population, organizations such as Solutions for Care are becoming increasingly important to our society. Solutions for Care provides necessary services and training for caregivers and provide driver re-training for older adults. They also arrange for home visits, plan day trips for seniors, provide access to fitness training, and help people apply for government programs that can help them as they age.

Proceeds from this event will help to assist seniors in Berwyn, Proviso, and Cicero, as well as the people who look after them.
