For ten years, from 2008 through 2017, Senior Neighbors hosted an annual gala called Twilight Shines. The event honored esteemed individuals or couples with the Twilight Shining Star award and shared more about the mission of Senior Neighbors with those in attendance. We thank our sponsors, attendees, and volunteers who made those ten years a success.

In 2018, Senior Neighbors began a new chapter with the inaugural 16 Over 60 Awards Gala, which annually recognizes 16 individuals 60 years or older for their inspiring impact on our community.
