This multigenerational event is free to all and will include information about elder abuse, its impacts on our community, and information from local agencies that offer actions and support to combat elder abuse. We will be providing reusable canvas grocery totes, magnets, and ice cream from Annie B’s Homemade Ice Cream.

Holly Jones, with the North Carolina Department of Justice, will be the keynote speaker this year.

The event is hosted by Buncombe County Elder Justice Coalition in partnership with Land of Sky Area Agency on Aging, Buncombe County Adult and Aging Services, Legal Aid of North Carolina, Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office, Van Winkle Law Firm, North Carolina State Employees’ Credit Union, and North Carolina Department of Justice.
