“There are only four kinds of people of in the world: those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers,
and those who will need caregivers.”
Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter
Join us on Thursday, October, 18th at the Chase Center on the Riverfront for an inspirational evening featuring some of the many family caregivers served by Easterseals. The theme of our dinner this year is: “What Does A Caregiver Look Like?” We will explore the increasingly important role that caregivers play in our community and celebrate these unsung heroes.
The keynote speaker for the evening is nationally-known speaker on caregiving, Peter Rosenberger. For the past 30 years, radio host, author, speaker, accomplished pianist, and black-belt in Hapkido, Peter has personally traveled the path of the family caregiver. Seamlessly weaving frankness with his outrageous humor, Peter brings freshness, hope and laughter into the painful places of caregiving. He regularly speaks on a wide range of topics that include healthcare and finances, caregivers in the workplace, facing adversity, thriving as a caregiver, and family relationships.
The evening’s activities will include an opening social hour at 5:30 p.m., with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, dinner at 6:30 p.m. and a program at 7:30 p.m., including testimonials from Easterseals clients.
Community support at events like our annual dinner is important so Easterseals can continue to provide life-changing services to families like Emily and her mother, Julia Hurst. Read more about Emily here.
