The Phinney Neighborhood Association’s first annual Power of Community breakfast this morning raised more than $18,000 from 125 guests for the Greenwood Senior Center.

Mayor McGinn kicked off the breakfast with a warm welcome and keynote speaker Wendy Lustbader inspired the crowd talking about the unexpected pleasures of growing older. Proceeds from the event will support GSC senior programming such as the PNA Village, caregiver support groups, the Alzheimer’s Café and the Gathering Place.
