Shasta High School students, Shasta Senior Nutrition Programs (SSNP), and the AARP are hosting a fundraiser titled “The Really Senior Prom” for senior citizens throughout Shasta County.
“The Really Senior Prom” will take place on Friday, April 8, 2011 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at SSNP, located at 100 Mercy Oaks Drive in Redding. The theme is “1940 Hollywood Red Carpet.” Music will be provided by the Shasta High School Band. Seniors will have a chance to re-live their high school prom and raise funds at the same time.
The cost is $5 per person and all proceeds will benefit seniors in Shasta County. Funds raised will provide services to homebound and underserved seniors through SSNP’s Meals on Wheels and Brown Bag programs.
To purchase tickets, call Jan Blood at 530-226-3067.
Meals on Wheels brings nutritious food, daily human contact, and a sense of security to frail, elderly seniors in Shasta County. These are shut-in seniors who are often alone and no longer able to prepare meals but want to remain in the familiarity of their homes. The Shasta Senior Brown Bag Program provides nutritious food twice a month to underserved, low-income seniors.
