It’s Official – A New RetroProm King and Queen Have Been Selected!

2018’s retroProm Court was the most competitive group we’ve seen yet!  The event certainly wouldn’t have been a record shattering year without their amazing campaigning.

We’d like to thank everyone who contributed to the 4th annual retroProm! The event was the most successful yet, raising a staggering $55,885 for the programs of the Athens Community Council on Aging!  281 attendees danced the night away to the music of The Highballs. David Walton and Kate Cook were crowned King and Queen of the retroProm as the top fundraisers among the court.

As Athens and surrounding areas continue to see increasing numbers of older residents, ACCA strives to provide services that offer companionship, recreation, meals, and resources geared towards meeting the needs of older adults in our community. 50+ dedicated and caring staff members as well as an army of over 1,000 volunteers work diligently to ensure ACCA’s 14 programs provide services to as many individuals as possible. These programs aim to ensure older adults in our community can continue living healthy, engaged, physically active lives. In 2017 alone, 14,653 individuals benefitted from services provided by the agency.

ACCA could not offer this level of service without the support of a caring community. The funds as well as the awareness raised by the retroProm play a large role in promoting and sustaining ACCA’s programming. We look forward to continued success in accomplishing our mission of promoting a lifetime of wellness through engagement, advocacy, education, and support. We are already looking forward to next year!
