The fourth annual Sage Utah Garden Party and Awards Brunch will be held this Sunday, September 15.
Sage Utah is a project of the Utah Pride Center that provided services and advocacy for Utah’s senior gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community. The group focuses on the complex healthcare, housing, physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual needs for this fast growing demographic.
The party and brunch are open to anyone wishing to support LGBT seniors through the group’s services. Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill is the the keynote speaker.
“I am honored to speak at this event for SAGE Utah, since we are all sages, coming together, sharing our stories, and creating a new and enriched reality and world,” Gill said.
Two Outstanding Contribution Awards will be presented to Jim Struve, LCSW, and Maggie Snyder, PA, who have served the greater community throughout their outstanding careers. Struve and Snyder have been superior in their long and significant contributions to the mental health and physical health of so many LGBT people.
“Gratitude and thankfulness are at the core of this annual event,” said Sage Utah program manager Charles Lynn Frost. “As September also metaphorically connects to time of life for the many members of SAGE Utah, we are focusing on programs centering around co-housing & home sharing, end of life planning, financial planning, care-giving support, loss and isolation and many other relevant issues facing Utah’s LGBT aging.”
WHEN: Sunday, Sept. 15, 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
WHERE: The I.J. & Jeanne Wagner Jewish Community Center, 2 N Medical Dr. North of University Hospital.
