July 16 2018, NEW YORK, NY. — Lifeforce in Later Years, also affectionately known as LiLY, is a New York based non-profit that coordinates help from a network of caring neighborhood volunteers and community resources to help seniors age safely in their homes. LiLY raised $187K from its 2018 Lily Legacies Gala on May 7th that was held at the Columbia University Low Library Rotunda.  

 

“I look forward to this gala every year as a reminder of the courage and wonderful spirit of our oldest seniors in our neighborhoods and how our communities can support this spirit by helping them age safely and happily right in the homes they love.” says Andrew Jenkins, President of the LiLY Board.

 

Broadway star, and baritone singer, Norm Lewis, who is best known for his roles in Porgy and BessThe Phantom of the Opera and recently as Caiaphas in Jesus Christ Superstar was master of ceremonies. He also delighted the audience when he co-conducted the mission appeal paddle raiser with Vice President of the Board, Audrey Wu.  At one point, he broke into song to reward guests for a substantial paddle raise.

 

The evening opened with an exhilarating dance number from a senior dance couple and a younger couple to reflect the passing along of precious legacies.  Senior dancers Etta Dixon and Bernard Dove from the Harlem Swing Dance Society and Gabriella Cook and Bobby White impressed audience with their nimble Lindy Hop moves.

 

Linda FriedDean of Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health received the inaugural Herbert Pardes Inspire Award and was honored for her contribution to epidemiology and geriatric health.  Dr. Craig R. SmithSurgeon-in-Chief, New York- Presbyterian Hospital and Chair, Columbia University Medical Center received  the LiLY Legacies Leadership Award for 2018 for his long and outstanding achievement in cardiac-thoracic surgery.

 

The evening was highlighted by a concert by Peter Yarrow, of the Peter Paul and Mary folk music trio. He had people swaying on their feet with his homage to Pete Seeger with If I Had a Hammer, and of course the beloved, ageless song, Puff the Magic Dragon. 

 

Special thanks for the support from United Health, New York-Presbyterian, Edward’s Life Sciences, and Mount Sinai-St Luke’s.

 

Proceeds of the gala are used to fund the social workers of LiLY’s neighborhoods and the programs. 

 

LiLY was founded in 2009 by Irene Zola, Executive Director, “We also need to remember that caring for elderly seniors also helps families who do not live nearby and gives them a welcome peace of mind.  We’re looking forward to expanding to more neighborhoods with our increased funding.” The organization also produces a visibility campaign each year that coincides with the International Day of the Old Person, called Love an Elder Week.  This no-fee- for-seniors model has been recognized by many; the organization and the Founder, Irene Zola, have been recipient of numerous awards, including the CNN Hero and AARP Inspire Award.
