Every year, SOS Meals on Wheels hosts a variety of events designed to connect with our community, celebrate the work we do, raise some money, and hopefully have a little fun too. Here is the latest and greatest of recent events and those that are coming up. Why don’t you join us for the next one?
Sip & Swirl for seniors
Our first ever wine and paint party was a blast! Staff, volunteers, friends, family, board members and even a few new additions to the SOS community all came together for a lovely, laughter-filled evening. Wine was sipped. Paint was swirled. Funds were raised. All-in-all, a great event. Who’s in for the next one?
11th annual Spring luncheon
This year’s Luncheon was held at the San Leandro Senior Center on May 18th. Despite inclement weather outside, we had a great turnout and it was all smiles inside. The Golden Gate Young Marines helped serve up barbeque with all the fixins. The Raffle and Silent Auction were a hit (Helicopter Tours, Southwest Flights, and Giant TVs, oh my!). A touching video produced ALL IN Alameda County left us all misty eyed as we were reminded of the real reason we all showed up—for the Seniors Who Count on Us.
