Join in the fun of an elegant night of dancing, dinner, and drinks with friends and local celebrities alike, all while benefiting Senior Action, a local human service organization.
Who we Dance For?
Senior Action is a non-profit organization that has provided programs and services for seniors in Greenville County since 1967. Five downtown churches (Christ Church Episcopal, Buncombe Street United Methodist Church, First Baptist Church Greenville, First Presbyterian Church, and St. Mary’s Catholic Church) joined with the City of Greenville and Greenville County to form the organization. Services are currently provided in twelve locations spread throughout Greenville County and in the homes of seniors.
The programs and services offered at Senior Action are comprehensive in nature with the goal keeping seniors in our community as active and engaged as possible and reducing isolation and loneliness. Seniors Action activities focus on three key areas:
Welllness: activities that promote healthy lifestyles including health education, health screenings, group and individual fitness classes, support groups, and aquatics programs.
Financial Wellness: activities that promote financial stability and planning including free tax preparation assistance, financial budgeting and planning classes, estate planning and will counseling, insurance assistance and education.
Lifestyle programs: activities that promote quality of life including daily lunch served at ten locations county-wide, transportation from home to our centers, social activities, continuing education, art and music programs, community engagement through volunteerism, group travel, and in-home service (home care, home repair, lawn care, and home delivered meals).
