Connections Area Agency on Aging is pleased to announce an upcoming “Sugar & Spice Gingerbread Gala. This gingerbread themed event is a Family FUNdraiser - raising dough for services to keep seniors at-home. The Sugar & Spice Gingerbread Gala will be held on Saturday, December 4, 2021 from 10 am – 2 pm at the Ho Chunk Centre Atrium in downtown Sioux City. Parking is available in the neighboring parking garage.
The day will include a display of entries of Gingerbread houses, competing at Professional, Amateur Adult, Family and Child levels. Judging will take place at noon, with winners announced at 1:00 pm. An auction of the professionally built houses and other donated gingerbread houses will follow the prize announcements. Entries need to arrive at the Ho Chunk Centre between 9-10 am.
Family-friendly gingerbread themed activities will be available throughout the day. And of course, children will enjoy decorating sugar cookies from Sugar Shack bakery to take home for a minimal donation.
All proceeds from this event will support the variety of programs at Connections Area Agency on Aging. Connections works to keep our older community members independent, remaining in their own homes for as long as it is safely possible – helping them to age in place. Programs include senior center meals, meals on wheels, housing, case management, information and assistance, medicare/insurance assistance, options counseling, transportation, advocacy, caregiver support and much more!
Please join us for a fun, holiday event as we raise funds to support Connections Area Agency on Aging and older Iowans.
