Was brought to You Virtually by 55 North


On November 10, 2021, we celebrated our first full year as 55 NORTH with our North Star Soirée.

Please click this LINK to watch the Soirée in its entirety.

Please click this LINK to Kat Baloun’s musical introduction.

Thank you to all who generously donated to 55 North during the Soirée. Proceeds from the event are being used to support our ongoing transportation, nutrition, and wellness programs.

In these unprecedented times, 55 NORTH provides a connected, caring community for seniors living independently.  Your financial support is our NORTH STAR that leads the way to a brilliant future for 55 NORTH as we meet the changing needs of older adults and their families in our community, now and for many years to come.

Again, on behalf of all of us at 55 NORTH, thank you!
