ABOUT THE AGELESS HALL OF FAME:
Older adults set the bar for volunteering in East Tennessee but often go unnoticed in their efforts. This event was created to recognize and honor 16 individuals, age 60 or older, who demonstrates their care for their community and its citizens. These people are nominated by their communities. All nominations were reviewed and selected by a committee made up of each of the counties’ leaders and human service agencies that serve the East Tennessee community.
Nomination Period – October 1, 2019 – February 14, 2020

WHO DOES THIS EVENT BENEFIT?
Senior Citizens Home Assistance Service (SCHAS) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the quality of life for the elderly, persons with disabilities, and their families by providing accessible care and supportive services through compassionate personnel. SCHAS serves all the East Tennessee region. Unlike other care giving agencies, SCHAS offers financial aid to clients who need the services but cannot afford the full fee; are not eligible for government assistance or do not receive full coverage from government assistance. Through grants, fundraisers and support from the United Way, SCHAS can help those with the greatest need. All net proceeds from this event will go to benefit SCHAS clients who rely on this fund.
