Real Life “Gidget” coming to Senior Health Expo

Cypress Place Senior Living in Ventura has announced that Kathy Kohner-Zuckerman, a.k.a the real Gidget, will be the keynote speaker at their upcoming Health & Wealth Expo.  This year’s event will take place on Wednesday April 27, from 11a.m. to 2p.m.

Come meet an American icon whose incredible true life story inspired the “Gidget” novel, movies and TV shows starring Sandra Dee and Sally Field.  Hear how this gutsy, inspiring woman refuses to let life limit her even today as a 75 year old surfing senior.

In addition to her keynote presentation, Kohner-Zuckerman will be signing copies of the “Gidget” novel immediately after her presentation.  Copies will be available for purchase as well.

Along with the keynote presentation, this year’s Health & Wealth Expo at the senior community will include over 30 vendors offering everything from free blood pressure and mini stroke screenings, free balance and hearing tests, free wealth management consultations, to veteran benefit information.  A free healthy gourmet lunch will also be provided.

Raffle prizes will be given away throughout the event including one grand prize; a 50” HD flat screen TV.   Admission is free and the event is open to the public.  Free shuttle parking will also be available.

Corporate sponsors for the event are Assisted Home Care & Hospice, Coastal View Healthcare Center, Mission Home Health, Victoria Care Center, Ventura Vein Center, and Glenwood Care Center.
