LAKE COUNTY — A total of 52 senior residents enjoyed a trip to New York City. The trip was part of a fundraiser for St. Ann's Senior Center, raising $2,000.
"We just got back from New York," said Shelly Shafer, program director for St. Ann's Senior Center. "The money raised from the trip benefits programs most needed. We usually host two fundraiser trips each year, sponsored by Diamond Tours, or sometimes we plan our own. We make $40 to $50 for each person who attends. We must have 30 people in order to have the trip, and if we get 35 people, one of our staff goes for free."
