Tickets and sponsorships are available now for Senior Community Services’ Inaugural Awards Gala Thursday, Nov. 7, beginning 6 p.m., at the Springfield Country Club, 400 W. Sproul Rd, Springfield.

The Gala will recognize three prominent figures within the Delaware County aging services community.

The evening begins with a cocktail hour at 6 p.m., where guests will have a chance to mingle while looking over items being offered in a silent auction.

The cocktail hour will be followed by dinner with dessert starting at 7 p.m. The awards presentation will follow. The evening concludes with dancing to the sounds of Best Kept Soul.

The honorees are:

  • The late Edward E. Baum, longtime SCS board member and volunteer;
  • Denise V. Stewart, director of the County Office of Services for the Aging;
  • SAP North America, a multinational corporation with its US headquarters in Newtown Square.

Edward Baum joined the Senior Community Services Board in 1987, serving on various board committees, including as board president. He donated more than 300 hours of his time every year to the APPRISE Medicare counseling program, which provides health insurance counseling to seniors.

Denise V, Stewart, director of COSA since 2013, is being honored for her success in growing COSA and the number of older adults it serves.  She has made many positive changes in how COSA delivers programs and how it meets the needs of the county’s older adults.

SAP North America is being recognized for its support of Delaware County seniors by matching employee gifts and encouraging volunteer service.  SAP has established a frim reputation as a leader in corporate responsibility.

Senior Community Services has been helping Delaware County older adults live meaningful and independent lives for more than 40 years through its community programs and in-home services.

In 2019, SCS helped over 23,000 older adults, through its four senior centers, a “center without walls,” home-delivered meals, in-home services like care management, and an Aging at Home program that helps more than 300 Greater Lansdowne and Ridley residents with home repair and handyman services.

SCS operates four senior centers—Friendship Circle in Darby, Good Neighbor in Darby Township, Schoolhouse Senior Center in Folsom and its biggest center, the Chester Senior Center in Chester.
