Medical Mutual Introduces 5 Star Senior Celebration

May 03, 2022

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Medical Mutual, in partnership with WKYC-3 Studios, is inviting seniors to come out and have fun during a yearlong celebration, welcoming those 60 and older to some of Cleveland’s greatest attractions and celebrating older adults’ contributions to Northeast Ohio.

“Medical Mutual has long celebrated the amazing contributions older adults make to our communities,” said Christine Taylor, Manager of Community Affairs for Medical Mutual. “Our Outstanding Senior Volunteer Awards have honored hundreds of seniors over the years, but with the many challenges older adults have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic, including social isolation and loneliness, we felt we needed to do more. The 5-Star Senior Celebration allows us to do just that, while expressing our gratitude for all they do.”

Senior Appreciation Week

The 5-Star Senior Celebration begins with a week of adventure. From May 16-20, seniors can explore some of Cleveland’s landmark institutions at no cost. These partners include:

Monday, May 16: Senior Appreciation Day at the Rock & Roll of Fame

Tuesday, May 17: Senior Appreciation Day at the Cleveland Museum of Art, with complimentary admission to the “Alberto Giacometti: Toward the Ultimate Figure” exhibition

Wednesday, May 18: Senior Appreciation Day at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History

Thursday, May 19: Senior Appreciation Day at the Cleveland History Center of the Western Reserve Historical Society

Friday, May 20: Senior Appreciation Day at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo

Senior Appreciation Sweepstakes

Adding to the fun, Medical Mutual is hosting the Senior Appreciation Sweepstakes from May 9 through June 17.

Outstanding Senior Volunteer Awards

The 5-Star Celebration will conclude with the return of Medical Mutual’s Outstanding Senior Volunteer Awards, which are returning after a pandemic pause.

For three decades, these awards have recognized local seniors’ community involvement and charitable work. This recognition is even more significant this year as we celebrate those who continued to put others before themselves even during the difficult times of the pandemic.

Nominations for the Outstanding Senior Volunteer Awards are open and accepted online through June 17. Cleveland-area awardees will be celebrated at a ceremony and luncheon on Oct. 20
