ASHEVILLE, N.C., July 25, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Council on Aging of Buncombe County, Inc. "Celebrates 50 Years" with a gala Saturday, August 23, from 6:30-10 p.m. Since 1964, Council on Aging's senior-centered support remains respected for its leadership and commitment to quality of life for aging adults and their care givers. Today, the agency's services remain relevant and popular, serving a growing number of Buncombe County residents.

"This golden 50th anniversary is certainly worthy of a true celebration," says Eric Mills, development director.

"Over the years, the agency has changed and grown into a well-kept secret that doesn't need to be secret anymore," says Mills. "People need to know about our in-depth programs and services, the magnitude of our reach, the way we help people -- we make that phone call, sort out a question, provide a service, or address a problem, whatever that need may be."

The gala gives Council on Aging the opportunity to thank those who have lent a hand over the years and share success stories of senior adults living independently in their homes while aging successfully, thanks to the resources available through the organization, its staff and volunteers.

"Now, we get the chance to celebrate what we can do for the next 50 years," says Mills. "This gala is a bit like a standing ovation mixed with an encore presentation."

The event is co-presented by Parsec Financial Wealth Management.

Entertainment and dancing with the popular Asheville band Citizen Mojo will be a highlight of the evening's festivities, which will also include a plated dinner, silent auction, and opportunities to support the Council on Aging. Proceeds will go to fund vital programs and services developed to enhance and extend the agency's mission, such as the popular Senior Dining Sites at five locations community-wide, the Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP), Medicare open enrollment classes, and more.

"Our 50th anniversary gala will be an event to remember," says Mills.

"Celebrating 50 Years" golden anniversary gala will be Saturday, August 23, 2014, from 6:30-10 p.m. at Double Tree Hotel, Biltmore Village. Event proceeds will support Council on Aging of Buncombe County, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit agency dedicated to assisting and linking senior adults and their families with information, opportunities, and services that promote and enhance the quality of life.
