From raising 21 foster children to chairing the Stanford University Board of Trustees, this year's seven honorees in the Avenidas "Lifetimes of Achievement" award have done it all.
The seven are Ray Bacchetti of Palo Alto, Jill and John Freidenrich of Atherton, Norma Hesterman of Los Altos Hills, Sharon Hofstedt of Menlo Park, Tom Jordan of Palo Alto and Donald Seiler of Atherton.
The public is invited to meet these high achievers at a garden party Sunday, May 17, from 3 to 5 p.m. The party, co-sponsored by the Palo Alto Weekly, is a major fundraiser for Avenidas, which offers services to local seniors and their families. The award recognizes outstanding contributions made by people over 65.
Tickets can be purchased for $75 by contacting Avenidas at 650-289-5445 or online at www.avenidas.org.
