STORY AND PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK

The Senior Connection kept seniors safe and nourished at home as the valley was ordered to shelter in place during the pandemic, the demand for its services growing 420 percent.

And now it’s continuing to serve seniors in their homes, in addition to providing safe opportunities for in-person dining, exercise and other social activities to address the isolation many felt during the first few months of the pandemic.

The community is coming together to ensure the organization can continue to provide such services with the 5th annual Cocktails for a Cause.

The event will be offered in a virtual format. People can watch the program from the comfort of their own couch. Or they can join one of the small groups that will watch the event.

The Senior Connection is creating party platters to make the evening more festive.

Those who register to donate will be entered in a drawing to win a 2020-21 season ski pass compliments of Sun Valley Resort.

The food and video are underwritten by Robin Leavitt and Terry Friedlander, Dr. Joe and Ellen Fastow, Linda and Bob Edwards, Don and Chris Keirn, Kathy Jones  and Nancy Eccles and Homer Hayward of the Hayward Family Foundation.
