LANSING--People attending the fourth annual “Southeast Oakland County Senior Salute” on Monday, Oct. 3 at the Royal Oak Farmer’s Market will have the chance to win $2,000 in Meijer gift cards, said hosts Sen. John Pappageorge and Reps. Chuck Moss and Marty Knollenberg.
“The Southeast Oakland County Senior Salute continues to grow every year because it’s a great opportunity for seniors to meet new friends,” said Pappageorge, R-Troy. “In addition, this year we are featuring $2,000 in Meijer gift cards that will be raffled away in $200 and $250 increments to give more seniors the opportunity to win big.”
Gift card recipients must be present to win.
“The best part of the salute is that the entire event, including a hot lunch, is free of charge,” said Moss, R-Birmingham.
The event is scheduled to run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Royal Oak Farmer’s Market, located at 316 E. Eleven Mile Road, two blocks east of Main Street in Royal Oak.
The salute also will feature entertainment, door prizes, games, health screenings, a cloth bag to store all of the vendor giveaways and much more. Those interested in flu shots are asked to bring their insurance card.
“I encourage local seniors to attend this fantastic event to get their flu shot, enjoy a hot meal and visit with friends,” said Knollenberg, R-Troy. “I look forward to seeing you there.”
