Senior Social Soirée To Be Held In Honor Of Local Senior Residents

A free Senior Social event will be held on Saturday, Sept. 9 at the Wellington National Golf & Country Club for residents in the western communities.

The event is free and is open to seniors 65 and older, however space is limited. In order to attend, RSVP at

The Senior Social was created to help local senior citizens meet other individuals with common interests in the hopes of encouraging new connections and friendships.

“We saw a need for local seniors to make new friends and acquaintances,” said host Ryan M. Tarnow of McLaughlin & Stern. “Our seniors deserve a night to have a dinner party in their honor where they can mingle and have fun.”

The event will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. In addition to dancing, dinner and drinks, guests will be treated to live entertainment.

“I have so many friends with parents who have moved from other states to be closer to their families,” said co-host Aimee Weisberger Stern, founder of the Mom’s Club of Wellington (PBC) & All Across Florida. “Although my parents are no longer with us, I’ve met so many seniors who remind me of my mom and dad. I’m confident that the seniors attending will meet new people they can connect and bond with.

Each table will be designated with a sign indicating a different hobby or activity, which will determine where guests will sit based on their interests.

“Rather than have assigned seating, guests can sit wherever they will feel most comfortable by common interests they have with other guests,” Tarnow explained.

Categories such as mahjong, golf, travel and dining are just a few of the tables that will be labeled for guests to be seated at.

“Not all of our seniors have been able to meet friends, especially those who are new to Florida,” Stern said. “Both Ryan and I are very family-oriented and wanted the best for our parents and in-laws. This is our way of helping connect local seniors.”

Community businesses will also be donating gifts to be given away in a raffle for the guests. Additionally, local residents will be volunteering their time to help make this event the best it can be.

Local leaders that oversee groups and programs for seniors will be in attendance. They will be on hand to introduce guests to fun activities that take place in the surrounding areas to help offer attendees more information on events they can attend on a more regular basis.

During the pandemic, programs had been on hold. Now that there are so many activities up and running for seniors, the goal is to make guests aware of all the options they have close to home.

“We are really looking forward to this event and hope our guests have a wonderful time,” Stern said. “Our seniors deserve the best!”
