For the last eight years, The INN has been the proud non-profit charitable partner and donation recipient of the Over 50 Fair, an event to celebrate life over age 50 with speakers, vendors and workshops. For the 2020 event, the fair’s organizer Barbara Kaplan has decided to change gears, making it a virtual charity event with all proceeds going to The INN.
This year the Over 50 Fair is a virtual conference via Zoom, with all donations going directly to benefit
The INN’s programs. It will take place for eight hours over two days on Saturday, September 12 and Sunday, September 13 from 12pm-4pm. There are opportunities to sponsor, support and attend.
“The INN has been a part of the Over 50 Fair since 2012,” Barbara said. “Because of COVID-19, this year’s event has gone virtual. It was a “no brainer” to include The INN as the beneficiary of the event.”
The decision to make a virtual event seems to have been the most responsible one. “Because older people are more at risk of COVID-19, it would not be prudent to have a live event this year, even if it were to be allowed. Cancelling did not feel like the right way to go, as our speakers have information that is relevant to our attendees, and it would be a shame to lose that opportunity to share it. We will have classes that are educational, interesting, and fun.”
