The Duncan Award for Senior Advocacy, named in memory of John J. Duncan, Sr., pays tribute to people in our community who uphold the same kind of steadfast support and advocacy of seniors and programs that serve older adults as were exhibited by the late congressman. Now in its 17th year, this signature event serves as the major fundraiser for                Senior Information & Referral (SIR). The public is invited.

Come prepared to bid on exciting Silent Auction items, participate in a wine pull, and sample excellent food and beverages, while celebrating the hard work of our area’s senior advocates. SIR provides free information about services for older persons and persons with disabilities who live in Knoxville or Knox County. The agency also provides referrals to these services when needed.

Voluntary contributions will be accepted at the door.
Proceeds from the evening will support Senior Information &
Referral, a free service providing compassionate assistance and
thousands of referrals annually to those who need help finding
resources in our community.

Located at The Pavilion at Hunter Valley Farm
