Senior Matters 2018

Oct 6, 2018
10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Drury Plaza Hotel and Conference Center

Coming up in October is an opportunity that will bring an interesting group of our community together. “Senior Matters” expo is a unique event which will be held on Saturday, October 6th that aims to reach out, help and support seniors over age 55 and seniors from 10 surrounding high schools. The 4th annual “Senior Matters” expo is being held at the Drury Plaza Convention Center in Cape Girardeau. This charity event is unlike any other because it brings vendors to one central location for all of the seniors in our community to be able to find resources such as products, services, organizations and companies geared solely towards them.

Thanks to the support from corporate sponsors the event also awards $500 individual scholarships for any post high school education to local high school seniors. This year’s goal is to award at least 20 deserving students with much needed financial assistance and without the requirement of a particular GPA or written essay. To date, $20,000 in scholarships have been awarded to 40 students from local area high schools.

Additionally, The American Red Cross will be holding a blood drive at the event. In fact, 99 units of blood have been collected over the last 3 years.

So, if you are a senior of ANY kind or just happen to KNOW any seniors….then make it a day to get out of the house and come to the Drury Plaza on October 6 at 3351 Percy Drive

from 10am-2pm here in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. The “Senior Matters” expo is a great family affair that you certainly won’t want to miss because here in SEMO … Seniors really DO MATTER!
