Description

Cable Car Caroling
Saturday, December 2, 2017

Cable Car Caroling, now a 33-year tradition in San Francisco, brings holiday cheer to isolated older adults and adults with disabilities at assisted living centers, skilled nursing facilities and individual homes across San Francisco. Last year over 500 carolers on 15 motorized cable cars sang holiday songs to more than 1,000 seniors and disabled adults.

Raising more than $100,000 in 2016, Cable Car Caroling funds go to support Institute on Aging's Friendship Line, the nation’s only accredited 24-hour crisis call center for lonely, isolated and depressed seniors and adults with disabilities.

Cable Car Caroling: From Generation to Generation
Our theme - “From Generation to Generation” – reflects the history and community participation of this event now in existence for over three decades. “Cable Car Caroling was an awesome opportunity to get plugged into the community and serve our seniors. It was moving and meaningful.” - Local Business Sponsor

YOU ARE INVITED:
On Saturday, December 2, 2017, we invite you to take part in the Institute on Aging’s 33rd Annual Cable Car Caroling fundraising event. Join us in supporting lonely and isolated older adults and adults with disabilities in our community. Hundreds of carolers gather at 12:30pm and after boarding cable cars and visiting 3-4 senior homes return for a hosted dinner with wine, and a special holiday celebration with fun and prizes.

ABOUT BUSINESS SPONSORSHIPS:
By giving to this annual event, you’ll be supporting lonely, isolated seniors and adults with disabilities in our community through programs such as the Friendship Line - the only accredited, toll-free, 24-hour crisis intervention telephone line for seniors in the United States. The Friendship Line fields over 156,000 calls each year from seniors in crisis and provides assistance to those in our community who need it most. Please contact Corinne Knudtzon at 415.750.4152 or by email at cknudtzon@ioaging.org.

Record cash donations or pledges on the Cable Car Caroling Challenge form provided and then submit the form with cash and checks when you arrive at the event. Or on this Eventbrite page, total all of your donations, enter the amount on the Cable Car Caroling Challenge line of the ticket order form and pay with a credit card here.

For every $100 raised you receive a free cable car ticket. Additional benefits include a festive holiday experience for all ages, a delicious holiday dinner with a variety of complimentary wines at no cost to participants, a free raffle ticket for donated prizes, and a fun-filled celebration after all the singing is done.
