Local seniors villages and aged care facilities have a new kind of entertainment thanks to a new corporate sponsor Event Cinemas Glendale.
The local movie cinema complex has teamed up with Scooters & Mobility Newcastle, both of who are major sponsors of local seniors entertainment program Adopt-a-Singer which was created to give professional level entertainment to senior citizens (especially those in aged care facilities).
Dana Pichaloff, Regional Marketing Manager of Event Cinemas Glendale said the ongoing monthly sponsorship aligned with both their company’s corporate giving program to support seniors entertainment on multiple levels.
“Our monthly sponsorship support goes directly to Adopt-a-Singer, which helps to supplement the lower fees charged to local aged care facilities so they can afford professional entertainers like Adam, and it allows him to keep performing for the 80+ aged care facilities in the area full-time,” Dana said.
“Event Cinemas Glendale believes in promoting the wellbeing and enjoyment of seniors in the community and having entertainers go to them in their facilities, retirement villages and homes, as well as having them come to seniors movie morning teas reinforces this commitment.”
“Event Cinemas Glendale, Adam Price and the Adopt-a-Singer program have the strong belief of giving senior citizens entertainment that is during the day and a little different from the norm and develops a sense of community pride.”
Adopt-a-Singer creator Adam Price said it was great to have Event Cinemas Glendale and Scooters & Mobility Newcastle on-board as major sponsors, along with GS Mechanical Whitebridge, Insurance For Living Newcastle and Stockton RSL, who were supporters of the program right from its inception in early 2013.
“Our program has quickly become a hit in the seniors community in the Hunter region in the short two years of its operation, and it’s great to partner with long term and very well known business leaders in our community,” Adam said.
“We are excited to welcome Event Cinemas Glendale to the Adopt-a-Singer seniors entertainment family and look forward to giving much joy and happiness through the gift of music.”
The program has regular seniors movie mornings each month at Event Cinemas Glendale, as well as morning teas at local clubs, Kotara Sports Club, Kahibah Bowling Club, United Sports Club Adamstown, and Stockton RSL, which welcomes seniors in general, as well as aged care facilities so they can have an activity day out with a very enjoyable and musical difference.
