Senior Community Centers features Mary Walshok at VIP photo exhibit and fundraiser

On September 6, 2012, the Senior Community Centers announced the names of local San Diego seniors, including Mary Walshok, associate vice chancellor of public programs and the dean of extended studies at UC San Diego, to be featured in the upcoming event “Notes to our Sons & Daughters” (details below).  The event will take place on Thursday, October 11, 2012 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Port Pavilion on Broadway Pier in Downtown San Diego.  Senior Community Centers is a nonprofit agency dedicated to keeping San Diego seniors healthy and independent.

“Notes to our Sons & Daughters” is a stylized black and white photographic exhibition featuring more than thirty diverse San Diegans with emphasis on the “wisdom” of their life’s journey. The exhibition is artfully directed by famed photographer and Escondido resident Philipp Scholz Rittermann.

The festivities will begin at 6:00 pm on October 11. Guests will enjoy an evening of mingling with the subjects of the stunning photographs as well as wine and a sampling of delicious cuisine under the stars along San Diego Bay. The honorary event chair is Darlene M. Shiley and the mistress of ceremonies is actress Marion Ross, best known as the mother from the television series “Happy Days.”

Individual tickets are $150 for general admission and $250 for VIP.

After the event, the photographs will become part of a traveling exhibit throughout San Diego County.
