Cable Car CarolingSaturday, December 2, 2017
Cable Car Caroling, now a 33-year tradition in San Francisco, is a multicultural event, including Hanukkah songs and Hispanic Christmas carols. This annual fundraising songfest brings holiday cheer to isolated older adults and adults with disabilities at assisted living centers, skilled nursing facilities and individual homes across San Francisco. Last year was a sold out record-breaking success with over 500 carolers on 15 motorized cable cars reaching more than 1,000 seniors and disabled adults.Raising more than $100,000 in 2016, Cable Car Caroling funds go to support Institute on Aging's Friendship Line, the nation’s only accredited (American Association of Suicidology) 24-hour toll-free hotline for seniors and adults with disabilities. The Friendship Line is both a crisis intervention hotline and a warm line of non-urgent calls.Cable Car Caroling: From Generation to GenerationThis year’s theme - “From Generation to Generation” – reflects the history and community participation of this event now in existence for over three decades. “Cable Car Caroling was an awesome opportunity to get plugged into the community and serve our seniors.
