Feast your eyes on the floorshow of the tap dancing troupe, Diane & Company, and the special guest appearances of reigning and past Ms. Virginia Senior America pageant winners.

Enjoy tasty hors d’oeuvres, sparkling punch and surprises throughout the evening.

Special invited guests include:

Bob Corso from WHSV-TV Channel 3;

Frances Spears Stevenson, daughter of Senior Center founder, Theresa Spears Walls, and granddaughter of Staunton’s first African-American lawyer, James Morris;

Kit Carter and members of the Persinger family who directed and managed the Center during the early years.

Tickets ($15 per person) available in Staunton at Bookworks (101 West Beverley Street) and at the Senior Center (300 Churchville Avenue). Proceeds will fund the Center’s new 14-passenger van.
