50+ Senior Life Expo Coming Up April 13 & 14

FLORENCE, S.C. (March 29, 2018) – Carolinas Hospital System will present the 23rd Annual 50+ Senior Life Expo on Friday, April 13, and Saturday, April 14, at the Florence Center. This premier, senior event focuses on entertaining and educating those approaching their retirement years or already retired.

This year, HopeHealth joins Chad Buffkin, owner of Golden Life Magazine, as the managing partner for the event. HopeHealth is excited about its newest philanthropic opportunity as proceeds from the 50+ Senior Life Expo will benefit the HopeHealth compassionate care fund.

“At times, our patients have needs that cannot be met directly by our providers,” said Scherrie Cogdill, associate director of development at HopeHealth. “The compassionate care fund is designed to help our patients with emergency assistance, routine procedures such as mammograms, colonoscopies, blood pressure screenings, specialty care, prescription drug assistance, and eye care services.”

Held in the Florence Center’s 10,000-seat arena, the Expo is one of the largest shows in the state for seniors. The Expo will include bingo, food, fun and prizes as well as free entertainment, demonstrations, exhibits, and seminars. Hear from experts on topics such as banking, health care, investments and estate planning, long-term care, insurance, senior housing, assisted living, home security, home-health services, hospice, and elder law. Staff from Carolinas Hospital System will also offer free health screenings, medical advice, and Q&A sessions.

Hours are Friday, April 13, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Saturday, April 14, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is $2 per person and covers both days.
