The event honored Larry Buck for his longtime support of Seven Acres, his tenure of which included serving as board president. He was presented the Joyce Proler Schechter Spirit of Life Award. The honoree was introduced by his wife Kaki Buck and their granddaughter Molly Nicholson. The award was presented by Seven Acres president Michael Feinstein.

“Tonight was a special night as we recognized Larry Buck for all he has done as a mentor, friend and inspiration for all of us at Seven Acres,” Feinstein told the gathering of more than 550. “We look to the future that is in good hands with our chairs tonight and know that seniors in our community will continue to be taken care of when they are in need.“
