11th Annual Celebrating Senior Champions Dinner and Auction

October 18, 2018 marked the tenth year that UPMC Senior Services has recognized remarkable individuals and organizations who have created a better life for seniors and caregivers living in western Pennsylvania. The Celebrating Senior Champions Dinner and Auction was held at the Omni William Penn Hotel with more than 600 supporters contributing to the success of the event. All proceeds help to sustain the UPMC Senior Communities Benevolent Care Fund. Through the kindness of donors and sponsors, the event has presented nearly $1.3 million in net proceeds to further charitable care throughout UPMC Senior Communities since 2009.

“We truly appreciate the generosity of the individuals and corporations who have partnered with us in supporting UPMC Senior Services. We are a stronger, healthier community for their contributions to the cause of aging well.”

— Deborah Brodine, President of UPMC Senior Services
