The fifth anniversary fundraiser for Big Hearts for Seniors (BHS) presents the screening of “Lives Well Lived” on Thursday, May 17 at the Michigan Theater.
Big Hearts for Seniors is a collaboration of five community-supported organizations at Michigan Medicine: Ann Arbor Meals on Wheels, Housing Bureau for Seniors, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, Silver Club Memory Programs and Turner Senior Wellness Program.
The film’s director Sky Bergman will be traveling to Ann Arbor to hold a discussion with the author of “On Purpose” Victor Strecher. Sky’s inspiration for the movie was her 103-year-old Italian grandmother who enjoyed exercise, making the best lasagna anyone has ever tasted, and being with family. She showed Sky, by example, that age is truly just a number.
Four years and 40 interviews later, Sky hopes to inspire people of every age to think about what they can do to achieve the longevity of both health and spirit that these people have.
The event emcee is Rob Reinhart, founder and host of the Acoustic Café, and the evening will feature an appearance by fabulous dance group The Golden Year Troupe.
General admission movie attendance is $15.
VIP reception and movie is $60 and includes refreshments, a cash bar (wine/beer only available with a $5 annual limited membership to the Michigan Theater – see me if you’re interested), and a meet and greet with Reinhart, Strecher and Bergman.
The VIP Reception Caterer and Sponsor is Atria Park of Ann Arbor.
