We also saw more than 140 people attend the movie, “The Age of Love” at the Hollywood Theatre. Thanks everyone for helping make the event such a success.
What a great turnout at today’s Valentine’s Day pancake breakfast, sponsored by Multnomah County Commissioner Loretta Smith. Thank you Commissioner for taking the time to visit and answer questions.
Join us at the Hollywood Theatre, Saturday, Feb. 14, at 1:30 p.m. to watch the documentary “The Age of Love.” The story follows 30 seniors who sign up for a first-of-its kind speed dating event designed exclusively for people 70 to 90 years old. The film takes viewers directly into the lives of older singles who still yearn to be seen, understood and touched, and perhaps find a new chance at love. The movie is a fundraiser for the Hollywood Senior Center and Elders in Action and part of the Age Friendly Portland Initiative. Tickets are $8 and available at the Hollywood Senior Center, online at hollywoodtheatre.org or at the theatre box office.
Want to attend a speed dating event for seniors following the film? Contact the Hollywood Senior Center at 503-288-8303 for more information. Spots are limited so don’t delay.
