Big News!!

Our annual event, An Evening of Comedy, will be livestreamed this year! No matter where you are in the world, tune in for fun and laughter in support of our SmileMakers Holiday Gift Program. Laughs are coming your way with Three Exceptional Comedians:

When:  Saturday, October 3, 2020, from 7-8 PM Pacific Standard Time
Where:  Livestreamed simultaneously on YouTube Live and Facebook Live—Registration Encouraged.
Why:  To raise funds to support the Council on Aging and the SmileMakers Holiday Gift Program, providing gifts to seniors in long-term care who would otherwise be forgotten.
Did you know?  27 years ago, our Ombudsmen and SmileMakers recognized that thousands of isolated seniors in long-term care were frequently forgotten at the holidays. Because of the pandemic, these frail and lonely seniors are more isolated than ever, unable to leave the facility they call home.
Join us:  Help provide personalized, wrapped gifts to over 7,000 seniors this holiday season. Help them feel remembered as cherished members of our community. Together, we can bring back their smiles!
Impact:  Watch our SmileMakers Video below.

Council on Aging’s 2020
Impact Award Honoree

The COASC 2020 Impact Award is proudly presented to the Kaiser Permanente Nurses of Orange County for their dedication and generous support of our SmileMakers Holiday Gift Program for more than 6 years. Their involvement started with the Irvine campus led by nurse, Harmony Gamez. Her enthusiasm, excitement and leadership has grown their participation year after year. This effort has spread throughout the hospital and now our angel gift tags are being adopted by multiple departments.

The Anaheim campus joined in 3 years ago and has expanded through many areas of the hospital as well providing thousands of gifts each year and bringing smiles and joy to residents in nursing homes that have no other family member involved in their care.

They do all this while providing frontline care during our current COVID-19 crisis and daily healthcare needs. We thank all of the Kaiser nurses who everyday share their kind hearts and skills to make our community a better place to live.
