Family Service Agency’s pie auction Tuesday night

November 19, 2018

DeKALB – Got enough moving parts on your Thanksgiving menu? Couldn’t someone else handle pie duty this year? Voila! Just in time for the holiday, Family Service Agency is hosting its annual Pie Auction on Tuesday night at Faranda’s Banquet Center.

The annual gala, which includes a light dinner, cash bar, entertainment, a 50/50 raffle and live and silent auctions, will go from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the banquet hall, 302 Grove St. Single tickets are $25, but you can get two for $40.

The event supports one of the agency’s key programs, Senior Services, which is is made up of two initiatives: Club 55 locations, or Senior Centers, and the relatively new program Senior Connections.

For more than 50 years, Senior Services has helped community seniors maintain physical, emotional, and social wellness, thus promoting senior independence through local Club 55 Senior Centers, according to a news release from FSA.

Senior Connections pairs volunteers with residents 55 and older to provide socialization to an older adult through various activities such as arts and crafts, reminiscing, community events, gardening, and more.

“This event is a great opportunity to get together with others in the community and support programs that help a lot of people,” said Erin Tamms, FSA’s community programs director. “There are so many seniors that attend our Club 55 locations, and we wouldn’t be able to offer the activities and programs that we do for low or no cost without the community’s support.”

For more information on the auction event or the senior programs, call Diana King, FSA’s program manager, at 815-758-8616.
