Elders First Adult Day Services in Rutherford County will hold its spring party and fundraiser from 7-10 p.m. Saturday, June 11 at the home of Murphy and Barbara Thomas, located at 2111 Shannon Drive in Murfreesboro.
Special guest will be world-renowned cake baker Jay Qualls, who will entertain with a cake-baking demonstration. Qualls’ cakes have been featured in Martha Stewart’s annual bride’s magazine and he recently appeared as a contestant on TLC’s “The Last Great Baker.”
The public is invited to meet friends of Elders First and learn more about the organization that provides loving care for persons more than 55-years old, who exhibit the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s and also gives family members a much-needed break from 24/7 caregiving.
Elders First Board President Janet Belsky said organizations throughout the country like Elders First save billions of dollars because the cost is modest and much less expensive than nursing-home care. During 2010, Elders First provided more than 6,000 hours of care for families in Rutherford County utilizing a small professional staff and local volunteers.
