PMMA’s (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America’s) brand new giving website, Giving.PresbyterianManors.org, won a platinum award from the Hermes Creative Awards competition. The newly redesigned Art is Ageless website, ArtIsAgeless.org, received a gold award and the 2019 Art is Ageless® calendar received an honorable mention.
The new giving site shares the stories of how donors and volunteers are improving and affecting the lives of residents in PMMA’s communities in Kansas and Missouri. The site also provides opportunities to give to each of the communities as well as the two Heart & Soul Hospice locations, which are an extension of PMMA’s mission to serve seniors in the Wichita, Kan., and Farmington, Mo., areas.
Art is Ageless is a trademarked program of Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America, a faith-based not-for-profit organization with 17 senior living communities in Kansas and Missouri. Each community holds a juried art competition exclusively for people age 65 and older. Winning art pieces are chosen to appear in the annual calendar or on the covers of greeting cards. Programs and classes are held throughout the year to encourage seniors to express their creativity.
Art is Ageless began in 1981 when resident art was featured in a calendar. The competition is now open to all seniors in the area. Learn more about the program at ArtIsAgeless.org.
The Hermes Creative Awards competition is administered by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals. The awards recognize the outstanding work of creative professionals involved in the concept, writing and design of traditional and emerging media. Nearly 6,000 entries were judged in the international competition.
