“I was honored and humbled, really, and I'm rarely at a loss for words,” said Grand Champion Paul Winkler as a crowd of 350 gathered at the Omni William Penn for Celebrating Senior Champions.

The Oct. 2 event feted the Presbyterian SeniorCare prez (26 years with the organization, 15 years at the helm) with top honors for his longstanding professional and personal dedication to senior causes. Recognition was also given to Caregiver Champion Ed Ricci and Community Champion Gail Roddie-Hamlin, accepting on behalf of the Alzheimer's Association, Greater Pennsylvania Chapter.

“When I really do something fantastic, then you can party ... but that's a lifetime,” Ricci said.

The evening was hosted by UPMC Senior Services and The Aging Institute.
