Arts for the Aging hosted its annual fall gala at Society of the Cincinnati at Anderson House on October 22 with a reception, arts performance by Verge Ensemble, and toasts honoring Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  In an evening emceed by artist Bill Dunlap, the 6th Lolo Sarnoff Award — so named after our nonagenarian founder — was presented to the Supreme Court Justice by longtime friends Bill and Dorothy McSweeny, and patrons gave a touching interactive tribute led by AFTA teaching artist Miles Spicer with members of Downtown Clusters Geriatric Day Care Center, inviting everyone in a serenade of the pop standard, “I’m Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter”.  Justice Ginsburg cited AFTA’s founder for her “love of music and art, and caring about the right things” — a moving sentiment for the occasion, Celebrating Lifelong Creativity.  Event photographs are available for viewing here (by Gene Carl Feldman), and also at these links from Washington Life, DC Hotspots and The Georgetowner.  For the evening’s program, click here.
