“The Senior Source will present the 2016 Spirit of Generations Award to Jan and Fred Hegi during the Spirit of Generations Luncheon, which will be held on Monday, November 14, at 12 p.m. in the Chantilly Ballroom of the Hilton Anatole. The Spirit of Generations Award is given annually to an individual or group of individuals who have helped build the foundation that supports our community and the bridges that connect the ages. Awardees have a universal appeal and ageless spirit that transcend the generations.
“The Hegis are well known for their unwavering support of a variety of human-service focused causes both individually and as a couple. They’ve been married for 48 years and have two sons and daughters-in-law and six grandchildren.
“Anyone who has attended a Spirit of Generations Luncheon will remember the event’s unique, lighthearted, tongue-in-cheek approach to recognizing its honorees and entertaining the crowd of more than 1000 guests. Previous send-ups have featured a Clydesdale horse, a senior stand-up comedian, an Elvis impersonator, a spoof style show and many other funny and memorable moments. A few surprises are already in the works for the 2016 event.
“Monies raised at the event help The Senior Source to operate a variety of programs and services that assist more than 30,000 older adults annually by providing community engagement, support, independence, advocacy, financial security and protection.
“Individual patron tickets begin at $150 per person and can be purchased online. Sponsorships are still available. For more information, please contact Stephanie Russell at 214.823.5700 or [email protected].”
