Jayhawk Area Agency on Aging will be having its annual "There's No Place Like Home" benefit Wednesday, May 9, to assist low-income seniors who have urgent needs.
The event will be from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at Great Overland Station in Topeka, 701 N. Kansas Ave. It will feature the Kings of Swing band and food from Aboud's Catering. There will be drawings for themed baskets that have been donated.
Tickets are $15 and may be purchased by calling the Jayhawk Area Agency on Aging, or JAAA, at 785-235-1367 or 800-798-1366 or by visiting the agency's Lawrence office at 2518 Ridge Court.
Proceeds will benefit the agency's Guardian Angel Fund to help seniors in desperate circumstances who live in Douglas, Jefferson and Shawnee counties. Funds have been used to help pay for medicines, repair furnaces during the winter and to purchase safety grab bars.
