In case you didn't know, AARP is hosting their Life@50+ National Event and Expo in Boston next month. It is a wonderful opportunity for the aging demographic to gain a better perspective on life after 50 (retirement, discounts and deals. entertainment, etc.). AARP is taking full advantage of the event being in Boston this year, and are utilizing legendary members of different sports teams throughout their event.
Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino and broadcaster James Brown are leading a day of service in Boston on Thursday, May 8. Later that day. Soledad O’Brien will moderate a discussion between former First Lady Laura Bush and her daughter, Barbara Pierce Bush, followed by a panel featuring New England star athletes, including the Celtics’ Bill Russell, captain of the 1980 American Olympic hockey team Mike Eruzione, former Patriot Steve Grogan, and former Red Sox’s pitcher Luis Tiant. This is a great way for the 50+ attendees to interact with athletes they may have idolized throughout their lives and learn from their experiences.
Tickets are just $25 for members and $35 for nonmembers. For more information on how AARP devours the details visit http://www.aarp.org/about-aarp/events/national_event/boston/
