Jane Pauley with Amy Jones

The Legacy Senior Communities recently hosted its annual “Yes! Event” featuring journalist and author Jane Pauley for a special on-stage interview with more than 500 guests at the Winspear Opera House.

The event raised more than $400,000 for the nonprofit organization with proceeds benefiting Residents’ Financial Assistance Funds for The Legacy Preston Hollow-Dallas Home for the Jewish Aged and The Legacy at Home.

Pauley discussed her 30-year journalism career and the inspiration behind her New York Times best-selling book, “Your Life Calling: Reimagining the Rest of Your Life.”

The Legacy Senior Communities presented the inaugural Carmen Miller Michael Award to Molly Bogen, President and CEO of The Senior Source. The award was established to honor Dr. Michael who was a longtime friend and board member. Bogen was recognized for her 38 years advocating for Texans who are aging.

The event was planned by co-chairs Candy Brown, Linda Garner, Amy Korenvaes, Elaine Pearlman, Ruthy Rosenberg and Madeline Unterberg with the help of Carol Aaron, chairman of the board of trustees of The Legacy Senior Communities.
