Roughly 300 guests were dressed to the nines for the 7th annual Snowflake Ball on January 24 at the Kerbela Temple. Hosted by the Knoxville- Knox County Office on Aging, the event serves as a yearly fundraiser for the local chapter of the national Senior Companion Program, a Senior Corps program that provides companions… to at-home seniors for free. The Al Curtis Orchestra performed, as attendees—including local senior dance groups—cut a rug on the dance floor. Dinner and gourmet desserts followed. More than $20,700 raised goes directly into funding added hours of service for the program. —R.W.
