Seniors Have Dreams Too, Inc is based out of Wallingford, CT
It is a 501(c)3 and was incorporated in 2007
Seniors Have Dreams, Too President, Sally F. Smith and Vice President Betty Berger
Seniors Have Dreams Too, Inc. is the brain child of Sally F. Smith of Wallingford, Ct. Sally was inspired by Shirley, a resident at a local nursing home and talented artist. An offhanded “I always wanted my own art show…” launched a one-woman effort to make that wish come true.
With the help of a local coffee shop, a one week art show specifically for Shirley was secured, complete with invitations, a fabulous makeover, a new dress and a corsage. Shirley sold two paintings and thanked Sally for many years after. Thus, with the encouragement of this success and the help of current Vice-President, Betty Berger, Seniors Have Dreams Too, Inc became a reality!
Our foundation became a 501(c)3 in 2007 and has granted numerous wishes across the country.
