Great Age Movement presents 4th Annual Jazz Brunch
Great Age Movement will present the 4th Annual Jazz Brunch a special celebration of Houston's dynamic and active seniors. The event will benefit the Great Age Movement's campaign to install a second senior playground in a high-density area of Houston as well as their wellness programs for seniors online and at The Health Museum.
This year's Great Age Movement Award recipient is Irma Galvan, self-made entrepreneur and owner of Irma's Original Restaurant. Galvan will receive the charity’s highest honor for exemplary leadership as an active senior who is embracing her best life through career, contributions to Houston, and compassion for family and community. A recipient of the James Beard Award and recently a guest judge on Top Chef Houston, Galvan will be the first Latina to be honored with this award.
Great Age Movement's programs serve to promote health and wellness for seniors. The Jazz Brunch will celebrate the organization's achievements in the past two years – the annual event was placed on hold due to the pandemic. Successes include the 2021 installation of Houston's first senior playground for public use at St. Dominic Village in the Texas Medical Center. This installation was made possible by community support and a milestone for the Great Age Movement.
They will also commemorate the successful launch of a new online health and wellness program for seniors at home initiated at the beginning of the pandemic. Offered in partnership with The Health Museum, the virtual program focuses on senior lifestyle, providing a range of topics from health tips to fitness routines and reaching thousands of seniors every week.
