For almost 20 years, there have been Angels There For You.
During the past two decades, the community group has been reaching out to assist seniors and their families by hosting four events annually. One of the most popular is the Seniors Got Talent Contest, which this year will be held on Canada Day.
The July 1 show will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. in front of the Angels There For You offices at 12031 2nd Ave. in Steveston. Everyone is invited to enjoy a lunch prepared by caregivers, followed by the show.
Since the show launched in 2014, seniors have demonstrated their considerable skills in the performing arts or other creative talents.
“It truly is something unique and special to watch,” says managing director Patricia Cruz.
Cruz says many talented and seniors are sadly forgotten.
“I have met awesome seniors who served this community for many years and were remembered no more, but now have a chance to shine once again,” she says. “It is a privilege to celebrate their lives by giving them a platform to share their talents on stage.”
