Picture it: A kitchen room filled with laughter, cheesecake, and lively conversation. Something that was seen many times in one of my favorite shows. This month, as part of our “Go For The Gold in 2024!” campaign (inspired by the Paris Olympics and our passion for changing the paradigm of aging), we’re taking a golden trip down memory lane with everyone’s favorite roommates – The Golden Girls!

Remember their iconic motto: “In fact, it’s our golden years.” That’s exactly what we celebrate through our Lifestyle Guide programs and articles, each with a unique “gold” theme. This month, it’s the Golden Girls themselves who inspire us to challenge expectations, embrace life’s richness, and find humor and friendship in every chapter.

Just like Dorothy, Blanche, Rose, and Sophia defied stereotypes about aging, our engagement team curates experiences that ignite curiosity, conversation, self-reflection, and the courage to ask “Why?” “What If?” and “Why Not?” One such program is our annual “She Believed She Could, So She Did” panel discussion, honoring Women’s History Month by celebrating trailblazing women like the Golden Girls themselves.

This year, join us for a slice of cheesecake (that Dorothy would approve!), pull up a chair for a special edition themed “Golden Girls, Golden Entrepreneurs!” as we hear from four remarkable women entrepreneurs who, like our beloved characters, forged their own paths and left their mark on the world.

Their stories, woven with the timeless wit and wisdom of The Golden Girls, will remind you that age is just a number, humor is timeless, and friendship is the golden thread that binds us all. We invite you to picture your own possibilities, inspired by these real-life Golden Girls who dared to dream big and go for the gold, just like you can!

You’ll leave feeling empowered, inspired, and ready to shout “Snap out of it!” to any self-doubt holding you back. So, channel your inner Dorothy, Blanche, Rose, or Sophia, and get ready to Go For The Gold in 2024!

Mark your calendars for March 8 at 3:00pm in The Point Auditorium for the annual “She Believed She Could, So She Did” panel discussion, honoring Women’s History Month.

Entry is free, but space is limited, so RSVP today!
