A Cause for Applause

On October 18th, we will be hosting A Cause For Applause, a benefit for the LGBT Elder Initiative. We are celebrating not only our work, but also the resilience, activism, and strength of our LGBT older adult communities.  We are also celebrating the accomplishments of the providers who have worked to improve their services to LGBT communities.

We will be honoring Holly Lange, President/CEO of the Philadelphia Corporation for Aging (PCA), with the Edwin J. Bomba Memorial Award for Advocacy. Throughout her time at PCA, Holly has worked tirelessly to make sure that all older Philadelphians, regardless of sexual or gender identity, are served with dignity and respect. Under Holly’s leadership, PCA has committed to developing an aging services network that will effectively meet the unique needs of LGBT older Philadelphians.

We hope you will join us on October 18th to celebrate the LGBT Elder Initiative and our LGBT older adult communities, honor Holly Lange and PCA, and build community with providers, community members, activists, and allies.
