Date:12/4/2007

Cable Car Caroling Proceeds Benefit Institute on Aging and the Center for

Elderly Suicide Prevention (CESP)

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- On Sunday, December 9, 2007, 12:00pm - 5:30pm, at San Francisco's War Memorial Veterans Building Green Room, the Center for Elderly Suicide Prevention and Grief Related Services (CESP), a program of Institute on Aging (IOA), celebrates their 21st Annual Cable Car Caroling fundraising event. Over 300 carolers will gather to bring holiday cheer to homebound seniors.

Carolers tour the city on motorized cable cars, caroling at senior homes and residences. Afterwards, carolers enjoy a festive holiday dinner, silent auction, and raffle prize drawing. Jan Wahl, Emmy winning producer, entertainment reporter, and film critic will emcee. Cynthia Glinka, creative director and founder of RejuveDance(TM), will invite attendees to join her on the dance floor. RejuveDance(TM) is a national health and wellness campaign promoting youthful vigor of body, mind and spirit through musically inspired rhythmic motion in a social embrace.

Tickets to the event are $50 for adults and $35 for adults under 25. Children under 12 are free. All proceeds benefit IOA's Center for Elderly Suicide Prevention and Grief Related Services (CESP). CESP is an innovative program reaching older adults in need of emergency assistance through a 24-hour, toll-free help line offering psychological support and access to care. Unlike a traditional suicide hotline, the program builds meaningful relationships with clients over time through outreach calls, home visits, and counseling. The center focuses on:

-- Providing free and immediate access to assist seniors in need

-- Raising awareness of elder depression among caregivers, seniors,

social service providers, and health care professionals

-- Training health care and social service professionals to recognize

elder depression

-- Breaking the cycle of depression and suicide by offering counseling to

people of all ages who have suffered a loss from suicide, or sudden or

traumatic death
