Alexandria, VA – There is still time to purchase a ticket to SSA’s Virtual “Stay-at-Home” Gala to support the work of SSA in keeping Alexandria’s older adults safe while aging with dignity.
SSA’s mission has never been more vital as we all face the COVID-19 pandemic. Please join this festive celebration and help us honor four extraordinary community leaders: Barbara Anderson, Esq., Hon. William D. Euille, C. Eugene Steuerle, and Kate Garvey.
Barbara Anderson had had a significant impact on countless older adults’ lives through her work as an elder law attorney. She is the founding member of the Life and Estate Planning Law Center and a leader in the legal community throughout Virginia.
Former Mayor William “Bill” Euille’s life work has been helping the community thrive and prosper. Bill was elected to City Council in 1994 and became the first African American Mayor of Alexandria in 2003. He retired as the longest-serving Mayor in the City in 2016.
Eugene “Gene” Steuerle is an economist and Fellow at the Urban Institute in Washington, DC. He has been actively engaged in the Alexandria community for over 40 years. Gene is the co-founder and Chair Emeritus of ACT for Alexandria, the city’s community foundation.
Kate Garvey, Director of Alexandria’s Department of Community and Human Services, will receive a special honor. Kate led the City’s effort to develop an effective response to the COVID-19 crisis by coordinating local nonprofit activities and creating innovative programs designed to help those most negatively impacted by the pandemic.
