Invitations are now available for SAGE Eldercare’s “Supper with SAGE” benefit dinner on Thursday, October 24. The organization is honoring Dr. Rosalind Dorlen, a local clinical psychologist, and presenting her with the OWL (Outstanding Wisdom and Leadership) Award.
“Dr. Dorlen is a leading example of the type of honoree who should receive SAGE’s OWL Award,” noted Jessica Rosenzweig Gruber, Executive Director of SAGE Eldercare, located at 290 Broad Street, Summit. “She is an activist and innovator of programs to improve the psychological health of adults, youth, older adults, families and communities and she has been an advocate for helping older adults and their caregivers meet the challenges of aging.”
As part of the event, which is being held at The Crystal Plaza in Livingston at 6:00 pm, Dr. Dorlen will make a presentation on “The Road to Resilience.” The $225 per person cost also includes a cocktail reception, open bar, sit-down dinner, and auction. Corporate sponsorships, dinner tables, and program advertising options are also available; a complete list of sponsorship opportunities is available upon request.
SAGE Eldercare cordially invites the public to attend “Supper with SAGE” and honor Dr. Dorlen. To receive an invitation, please contact SAGE Eldercare’s Development Office at 908-598-5504 or email email@example.com.
