The Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC) of Broward County, Inc. is honoring their Executive Director, Edith Lederberg’s, illustrious 40-year career at a fundraising luncheon being held at the Renaissance Plantation Hotel on August 11th. All proceeds generated will benefit the over 421,000 year-round Broward senior residents.
Over the past four decades, Edith has led the organization to become one of the most highly respected agencies in the State focused on supporting the Broward County elder community. Through her leadership abilities, Edith has instilled a unified effort that has enabled the agency to grow, fostering opportunities to make a difference in the lives of so many others.
In 1977 Edith set out on a mission to make an impact to help the senior population sector of the community. Being close with her late Grandmother gave her the tools and skills she needed to do so along with a love of teaching, speaking and writing. During that year she was hired at the Area Agency on Aging in a public relations capacity, and spent much time meeting political powerhouses and attending many condo association meetings. Thirty years later, in 2007, the Areawide Council on Aging opened their new home in Sunrise, which is named in Edith’s honor.
“Hopefully, healthy todays and tomorrows will be my constant companions, and the smiles and laughter of my associates, like my Administrative Assistant, Cheryl Morrow, will continue to carry sunshine into my presence,” says Lederberg. “May the success of my years, at the Aging and Disability Resource Center, be shared with those who made it possible and plausible, for they held my hands and followed my lead even when the future appeared to be uncertain. I will never forget to remember!”
The time and talents Edith has committed to the ADRC have shaped the organization as a trusted entity for residents over 60 years old that are seeking information and supportive services and programs specifically designed for their needs.
“All of us owe a debt of gratitude for the effort and time Edith has committed to making the ADRC the trusted entity for residents over 60 years old,” says the 40th Anniversary Committee, Donna Appel, Natasha Elfarghali, Elizabeth Lombardo, Cheryl Morrow and Mary Tod. “Edith has never wavered in her efforts. This shared commitment is the bond that makes all things possible. We plan to fulfill our goal and reach our vision through Edith’s continued guidance and the community’s generous support.”
