For the first time in its 36-year history, Cedar Lane Senior Living Community will host the Cedar Lane Distinguished Service Award Dinner and Silent Auction on May 10 at the Harry Lundeberg School of Seamanship in Piney Point.

The inaugural Distinguished Service Award will be presented to local businessman F. Elliott “Sonny” Burch Jr., chairman of Burch Oil, in recognition of his more than 23 years of service to the organization his father helped establish in 1977.

Nearly 200 guests are expected to attend the dinner, which will feature live music, cocktails and a silent auction.

“Although we’ve been serving the community for 36 years, this is the first time we’ve attempted an event on this scale, and we’ve been thrilled with the early response for sponsorships and tickets,” said Beverly Stickles, president and CEO of Cedar Lane. “This event is not only an opportunity for us to pay tribute to one of our most valued supporters, it’s also an opportunity for us to increase the community’s awareness of the changing and growing needs of local seniors.” Proceeds from the event will help fund programs and services such as daily meals and activities for the more than 200 senior residents at Cedar Lane.

Tickets for the event are $100 each. For tickets, call 301-475-8966.
