Music will be provided by the Jazz ConneXion, and people will get to sample delicious appetizers and wines and other beverages.

The 2013 recipients were chosen from a group of over 40 nominees. "This annual celebration of older adults who make things happen is near and dear to the hearts of many folks in the community," Avenidas CEO/President Lisa Hendrickson stated. Dr. Tom Fiene is a community physician, diagnostician and teacher; Ben and Ruth Hammett are both environmental btorenefacs and dynamic community volunteers; Al Russell is a strong education advocate; Judith Steiner is the former executive director of Hidden Villa and the founder of Innovative Housing on the Peninsula; lastly, Katsy Swan, landscape designer known for her work on the gardens at the Stanford University Medical Center.
