Join Us for a Virtual Celebration!
Due to increased COVID concerns, Avenidas presented the 2021 Lifetimes of Achievement virtually through Zoom this year. Watch our event highlight video.
As always, we will celebrate with music, good friends, outstanding honorees, and even food and wine!
We will be providing treat boxes filled with an array of freshly made, delicious savory snacks, a decadent dessert, and wine, to guests requesting this option. (Delivered locally.)
Joe Simitian, Santa Clara County Supervisor, will be our Emcee for the event, and you’ll get to meet our new President and CEO, Amy Yotopoulos. Then you’ll learn about our impressive roster of honorees and their contributions to our community!
We are looking forward to you joining us at this safe, fun, memorable, virtual event!
This event is open to the public, and ticket sales go toward supporting all the Avenidas programs that help re-invent aging.
