President’s Point

October 1, 2014

October is associated with autumn in the Northern hemisphere – a time when seasonal change is imminent and summer fades away. In the western world, October is also commonly associated with Halloween, falling leaves and abundant harvests. And, in Tallahassee, October has for the last 16 years become associated with Elder Care Services’ signature fundraiser Oktoberfest.

The last week in October is the only time of the year during which all four major North American professional sports leagues schedule games. Fans cheer for baseball, football, basketball and ice hockey. The NBA begins its regular season at this time; the NHL is about one month into its regular season; the NFL is about halfway through its regular season; and MLB concludes its postseason with the World Series.

One week earlier, and for one night only – Friday, October 17 – under the majestic oaks at Mission San Luis, you are invited to one of Tallahassee’s most entertaining events, Elder Care Services 16th Annual Oktoberfest! Festivities begin at 6 PM for VIPs and 7 PM for general admission. You will enjoy an unlimited supply of fine German cuisine, desserts and beer, live music and a fabulous silent auction. It will be an evening to remember, and a way to help more seniors receive the services they need to remain safely in their homes.

We anticipate that this year’s event will be completely sold out, so be sure to make your reservation to be a part of the best fundraiser in Tallahassee and help all of us improve the quality of life for our seniors!

With warmest regards,




Mark
