Supporting the Council on Aging's SmileMaker's Holiday Gift Project

Hi Friends and Family,

I am excited to share with you an amazing campaign and virtual event that I am supporting this year, the 2020 An Evening of Comedy. This annual event is unique this year due to COVID -19 and the inability to hold the Gala at the hotel. Instead, it will be a live-streamed comedic hour of humor, fun and compassion for their mission.

Three amazing comedians, Jay Mohr, Fritz Coleman and Frances Dilorinzo will be entertaining us on October 3rd, as a celebration of the virtual fundraising campaign effort that takes place from July 1st – October 3rd, 2020.

Just as in years past, this special campaign will directly support their SmileMakers Holiday Gift Program and other services for thousands of lonely, isolated seniors. But without a silent or live auction as part of the event this year, it is your personal contribution that will provide the necessary funding to support this program.

This event is hosted by the Council on Aging – Southern California (COASC) which provides a wide range of free programs and services to over 240,000 seniors in a 5 County area, helping them remain healthy, connected and protected.  You can learn more about COASC at

As a dedicated supporter of the Council on Aging this event is important to me because I joined the Board of Directors in December of 2009.  I also became a Friendly Vistor at that same time.  If you want a rewarding way to give your time and financial support for deserving seniors, please give to the COASC.  

You do not have to donate to watch the event. 

We are asking people to register for this free event on Eventbrite: 

By registering, you will receive a direct link to view on either FacebookLive or Youtube Live, as well as information on how to view the event.

I need your help to raise these vital funds for the SmileMaker’s Holiday Gift Program and help me reach my fundraising goal of $2,000. No gift is too large or too small.

Thank you for joining me in making a difference in the lives of seniors in nursing homes in our local SoCal communities.
