February 06, 2018 05:53 PM

In an annual tradition, seniors at one local high school and seniors at one local retirement community came together for the Senior to Senior Ball.

Seniors from Bishop Kearney's National Honors Society traveled to St. Ann's Community for the event, where they danced, socialized and participated in activities throughout the afternoon.

The event is the culmination of a two-month fundraising effort by the students who raised enough money to purchase carnations and other gifts for each resident.

"My definition of old has really changed," says Jackie Giacovelli, a senior at Bishop Kearney, "There's some people who are in their late 90's, and they are still full of life and energy and they don't even need to be here, but they are, and it's so inspiring and I want to like that." 

This was the 23rd year of the event.
