CICOA’s 10th annual Signature Breakfast, presented by Comfort Keepers, will be held on Thursday, April 11, 2019, at Primo South. We presently are looking for sponsors to help us raise over $100,000 to fund critical services!
The fundraising event consists of a free breakfast followed by a guest speaker and an opportunity for attendees to make a donation to fund services for older adults, people with disabilities and family caregivers. CICOA also will present its annual Caregiver of the Year Award, which honors one personal caregiver in Central Indiana who models courage, sacrifice, strength and creativity while caring for another. Meet the 2018 Caregiver of the Year.
This year’s keynote speaker is Tom Coverdale. Indiana basketball fans will remember Tom as Mr. Basketball in 1998 when he played for the Noblesville Millers. Tom went on to play for Bobby Knight at IU and ended his college career with the third highest point average and assists in school history. Tom moved on to a six-year, out-of-state coaching career before returning to Indiana. While at IU, his mother was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease. Tom will share the powerful story of how he, along with his father and two brothers, a family of alpha males, provided care for the most important woman in their lives.
Please mark your calendars for April 11, and plan to join us in the celebration!
