We are delighted to recognize the outstanding philanthropic efforts of Mike and Cindy Stieger. The Stieger’s have been dedicated volunteers and contributors at the Council on Aging –Southern California for over 18 years.
They first became aware of the Council when the Financial Abuse Specialist Team counseled them on how to deal with a financial predator who had targeted their aging aunt. Based upon the positive support of the Council and the other programs offered, Mike and Cindy decided to get personally involved and support the Council.
Mike joined the Board and served as Chairman for several years. Cindy became actively involved with our SmileMakers Program and helped to expand the outreach from 1,000 gifts provided to residents to over 6,000 gifts annually. Her energy, enthusiasm, and involvement developed our annual gala, An Evening of Comedy, from an afternoon luncheon to the popular evening event it is today.
The Stieger family has supported the Council generously over the past 18 years contributing over $250,000 to various Council projects. We are so grateful for their kindness, and compassion for older adults.
We are honored to present the 2021 Impact Award to Mike and Cindy Stieger, our special volunteers at the Council on Aging – Southern California.
