Gala Sponsors

We thank all of our generous sponsors in providing much-needed financial resources in support of our mission. Sixty & Better operates as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and depends on the generosity of the community to keep older adults active, engaged, and thriving at 25 Activity Centers across Fort Worth and Tarrant County.

Remaining sponsorship opportunities are limited—but still very much so welcome. Please contact Director of Development and Marketing Jeffrey Harse to inquire at or call 817-413-4949 ext. 205.
