Special Events

Backyard Picnics

Thursday, September 24, 11:30 am – 1:00 pm
The Village is planning small in-person gatherings in our backyards. A few Village members and volunteers will host up to 4 guests each in their backyard. Everyone will bring their own food and drink, sit at least 6 feet apart, and enjoy the company of others. Contact us if you’d like to attend.

Power of Community Fundraiser: Alone Together

Thursday, October 15, 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Please join us for the 9th Annual Power of Community online fundraising event. During the pandemic, we’ve seen a heightened risk of social isolation and loneliness, especially among older adults. Join us to celebrate and support PNA’s senior services, which help to combat these problems and foster belonging and well-being for our elders. Includes a keynote from Carla M. Perissinotto, M.D., M.H.S., associate professor in the Division of Geriatrics, Department of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. RSVP here or click here if you cannot attend but would like to donate.

Want to help spread the word about the event and our senior programs? Be a Virtual Champion! It’s like being a table captain, but without the tables. Invite your friends, colleagues, and family, with support from us. Email Mary at [email protected] if you’re interested.
