PLAINVIEW, NY - July 24th, 2013 - As we gear up for another election season, Long Islanders are invited to cast their votes for another important race, 2013 Savvy Senior. Long Island’s Association of Generational Experts for Seniors (AGES) is now accepting nominations for Long Islanders’ favorite “Savvy Senior” citizens until Saturday, August, 31, 2013. Each senior entered will be considered a candidate for 2013’s Savvy Senior King and Queen, both of whom will be announced and crowned during AGES’ Fourth Annual Savvy Senior Day, which is fittingly taking place just before Grandparents Day on Saturday, September 7, 2013 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Holiday Inn in Plainview, NY. All seniors nominated will be publicly recognized, with the King and Queen receiving gift certificates toward professional studio portraits, compliments of Bradford Renaissance Portraits.
“There are so many exceptional seniors living on Long Island who have not only made but are continuing to make tremendous contributions to our lives and the communities we live in,” says Rita Medaglio-Barrera, AGES Chairperson. “The whole concept behind AGES’ Savvy Senior Day is to provide a day in which the many seniors who make up Long Island can deservingly shine among family and friends and can be showered with our great respect, admiration and appreciation for of their accomplishments. We encourage everyone out there to vote for their special senior and to take part in this special, celebratory event.”
