The Breakfast of Senior Champions event featured commemorative portraits and stories of our Champions, our emcee Ken Ullmer from Mix 96.5, and an inspiring keynote speech from author Gregg Levoy made in the spirit of living life to the fullest, as our Champions certainly have done!

The Buncombe County community submitted their nominations of ordinary, but exceptional, older adults, who have made diverse contributions in a variety of ways. Our independent panel of judges chose 8 Senior Champions. This was an amazing opportunity to collectively celebrate and recognize notable older adults in our community!
