Look out Harvest Moon Ball at Trinity Oaks. There’s a swanky new senior ball in town.

On Tuesday afternoon, Trinity Living Center participants, staff and guests gathered at the center for the first Wish Upon a Star senior ball. Guests danced to the sounds of DC and the Country Music Legends, had their pictures taken, enjoyed refreshments and just generally had a fabulous time.

In addition to the band, other volunteers made the event a success. Amanda Messick, Joni Taloute and Shaunika Thomas from the Salisbury Salon and Spa  visited in the morning to do participants’ nails, hair and makeup for the event.  Also pitching in were Paula Hill, Wendy Wilson, Lee Wagoner, Amanda Moore, Regina Patterson, Nana Sloan and McKenna Cottingham. Jayme Phelps was on hand to take “prom pics.” And thanks to Trinity Oaks health and rehab, participants were able to borrow prom-style dresses to wear.

“It was by far the greatest TLC event to date,” said the center’s executive director, Christina Joyce. “Everyone was so dedicated to making this a day to remember for all of our participants. Seeing the love the TLC staff has for its participants is so heartwarming, and it reminds me why we are all here every day. Hearing all of our ladies talk about how beautiful they felt and how special this day was made all of the hard work worth it.”

Operated by Lutheran Services Carolinas, Trinity Living Center is a United Way Agency that provides adult day services.
