Welcome to CARIE

Dear Friends,

On April 12, 2018, CARIE will hold its annual Benefit Reception and Auction. This wonderful evening brings together two hundred or more guests – professionals, business persons, members of the greater Philadelphia community – in support of CARIE’s mission” to promote the well-being, rights and autonomy of older adults through advocacy, education and action.”

There is plenty of excitement as guests bid on a wide array of terrific items in our silent and live auctions, which this year include stays in a Tuscan villa, a cottage in Scotland, an African safari, vacation homes in Aspen and Cape May, tickets to Saturday Night Live, Late Night with Stephen Colbert, the Opposition with Jordan Klepper, cultural and sports events (including Eagles tickets!) as well as theater, art, jewelry, getaways, restaurants, and much, much more!

A highlight of the evening will be the presentation of the Spirit of CARIE Award to legendary Philadelphia Inquirer sports columnist Bill Lyon, to Jason Karlawish, MD, Co-Director of The Penn Memory Center (also Mr. Lyon’s physician), and to the Penn Memory Center.

I hope you will join us for an evening of delightful company, terrific food provided by Catering by Design, wine and beer bar (beer donated by Yards Brewery), and music by Paul Sottile. We are thrilled that Jim Donovan, co-anchor of CBS 3‘s Eyewitness News This Morning, will serve as Master of Ceremonies for the evening. To purchase tickets, donate an auction item or become an event sponsor, visit our event website www.501auctions.com/carie. I hope to see you on April 12th!

Advocating for the Elderly

May 26, 2016


The number of older adults in the United States is projected to double by the year 2060. Many elders will need services and supports to live with the greatest dignity, independence and quality of life possible. For almost 40 years, CARIE has been an advocate and a source of information and guidance for older adults and their caregivers, helping them navigate the complex health and aging systems.
