Please join us as we kick up our heels at The Ruby Slipper Event, our annual gala celebrating SASI's two core programs - Home Care Services and Senior Connections - which empower older adults to remain independent and in their own homes.  

This event will take place at a NEW fabulous location: the Wisteria Room in the Halim Time & Glass Museum. Join us for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres with open bar and silent auction followed by a seated dinner, program and a live auction with awesome prizes.

We also have a very special offering for attendees: private access to view the museum collection for one hour prior to the event. There are only 8 tickets available, they will go fast and can only be purchased online.
