Visionaries in Philanthropy is an organization of young professionals who see value in our seniors’ health, well-being and strive to make a difference in their lives every day. Can you think of a better way to spend some of your time than to help the generation that came before you? Without them none of us would exist.
The biggest joy in a senior’s life can be given by the smallest effort on your part. Every day Meals-on-Wheels Greater San Diego, Inc. serves homebound seniors 2 meals per day, but it’s not the meals so much as the companionship that really brings them joy. Many of the seniors only contact with another human being that day is with the Meals-on-Wheels delivery volunteers. Every senior deserves to go through the day and not be hungry, but most of all they deserve to feel valuable. In their lifetime they have seen and heard so many things, if only someone would take the time to listen to them we could learn so much.
Each of us at one time or another has felt the need to give back. It can be done with financial or material donations or with time. I started with Visionaries in Philanthropy in order to help give back to seniors. I had a very special grandma, Doris Kook, who I loved dearly and lost in 2011. I wanted to find a way to help seniors in her honor; I found that with our group. We organize events and fund raisers to feed San Diego seniors. So I invite you to do your part by joining our group or just coming to events and supporting our cause.
Our next event is February 28th at 6pm. Join us at Po Pazzo, which means “a little crazy” in Italian. Tickets are $5 for non-members; the event is free for VIP members. All attendees will enjoy the following: We’ll buy your first drink! Choose from draft beers, house wine, or well cocktails, delicious pesto penne and eggplant and short rib lasagna, raffle prizes, including bottles of wine, live music starting at 7 p.m., a fun Italian parting gift from Po Pazzo. Plus, you’ll get to meet and chat with a great group of young professionals! What more could you ask for? We hope to see you there!
