What started as a simple idea to get area seniors involved in learning more about their health, has now become an annual staple across Ventura County. Cypress Place Senior Living is announcing its 10th annual Health and Wealth Expo. This year’s event, titled “Laughter Is the Best Medicine,” features 35 local vendors, as well as local comedian Randy Lubas as keynote speaker.
The Health and Wealth Expo is from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wed., April 11, at Cypress Place, located at 1200 Cypress Point Lane in Ventura. The event is free and open to the public.
Over the last 10 years, the expo has featured speakers with incredible stories that inspire seniors across the area. This year’s event will be no different, as one of Ventura’s most well-known comedians inspires attendees of all ages to let go and laugh. Lubas is the co-owner of Ventura Harbor Comedy Club, and has made appearances on several nationally televised and radio broadcasts, including Comedy Central, Showtime and Bob and Tom Radio.
In addition to enjoying the Lubas performance, attendees can get their blood pressure checked, receive a mini stroke evaluation, along with balance and hearing tests. Wealth management and veteran benefit consultants will also be on hand to answer any questions. A free healthy gourmet lunch will be provided.
Raffle prizes will be given away throughout the event, including one grand prize: a 50’’ HD flat screen TV. Free shuttle parking will also be available.
Corporate sponsors for the event are Ventura Post Acute, Coastal View Healthcare Center, Mission Home Health, Victoria Care Center, Meditech Health Services, and Livingston Memorial Visiting Nurse Association.
