Senior Citizens Council annual fundraising events are widely recognized in the thriving communities of Tuckahoe and Bronxville.
Our members participate in a multitude of ways, always generously volunteering their time, energy and resources, ensuring the success of each event.
Each year we send a letter to our friends, supporters, and the wider community soliciting financial support to continue our mission. This is our major fundraising initiative and we are grateful for the generous support we receive.
The International Council on Active Aging began the first Active Aging Week in 2003.
This week is meant to celebrate how positive the process of aging can truly be.
Active Aging Week encourages adults over the age of 50 to take advantage of all that life has to offer.
The goal of this week is to promote wellness initiatives and to get bodies up and moving.
Active Aging Week
is October 2-8, 2023
Imagine this....it's Monday before Thanksgiving - when most other people are busying themselves with lists, shopping, stressing, baking pies,
and planning for their own family holiday, Senior Citizen Council members will be found doing something quite different...they shop, plan, and create Individual Thanksgiving Dinner Baskets, which are delivered to families in our community. Twenty-three full dinners ingredients were provided this past Thanksgiving.. It's a huge production, and with all basket contents donated by Senior Citizen Council members, truly a labor of love.

June 19, 2023: The Senior Citizens Council is happy to congratulate Heidi Coppola as the winner of free parking in Bronxville village for one year!
The SCC's annual parking space raffle took place this year between April and the middle of June. Raffle tickets were sold by mail, and street sales took place throughout the village in May and June. The winning ticket was chosen by Mayor Mary Marvin on June 14, Flag Day, in front of the flags on the Village Hall lawn.
All ticket proceeds benefit the Senior Citizens Council, which oversees the operations of and raises the funds necessary to run centers for the Bronxville Senior Citizens (BSC) and the Tuckahoe Senior Citizens (TSC). Our mission is to reduce instances of isolation and loneliness among the local senior populations by fostering community and friendship through social and recreational programs. We are immensely grateful to the Village of Bronxville for providing the free-parking prize – and to all our friends and neighbors who supported us by buying raffle tickets!
