Aging Well: senior fair expected to draw thousands of attendees
HONOLULU - The state's largest senior fair takes place in a week. The annual Young at Heart Expo attracts thousands of people over three days, all looking for ways they can keep Aging Well.
Legendary island singer Danny Kaleikini plans to welcome people to the Young at Heart Expo. As its official "ambassador," he says he's excited to be part of the senior event. "I think it's good for the people, the local guys, to know what's happening because we're not getting younger," he says.
More than 300 companies that cater to seniors will be there to promote the latest in health, financial and lifestyle products & services, like Medicare insurance agency Plan Advisors Hawaii.
Agent Matthew Ragundo says, "It's the best place to reach out to seniors. They know about it. Once a year, they always come. It's our best way to reach out."
Plan Advisors Hawaii has had a booth there since 2004 and fields a lot of questions. "What does Medicare cover? What's available in Hawaii? What plan am I in? Am I in the right plan? Are my drugs covered?" lists Ragundo.
76-year-old Linda Wong will be going. "I'm looking forward to this Young at Heart Expo. Being older, you want to see what's out there, what products there are."
Entertainment includes KITV4's former anchor Jordan Segundo and of course, Kaleikini.
The Young at Heart Expo is a free event on September 20, 21 and 22, 2019 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall. More at https://www.youngathearthawaii.com/.
