Senior advocates networking hits the high seas

Setting sail from Sheepshead Bay aboard the luxury yacht Atlantis on the evening of August 19, a Networking on the Seas summer party was held to develop resources to serve senior citizens better. Many of the guests were members of PESID, People Empowering Seniors Independence and Dignity.

“What a great way to network on a beautiful evening aboard this wonderful yacht with our friends, members and supporters,” said PESID founder Annette Fisher.

Summer party sponsors included Sunrise Senior Living of Sheepshead Bay, Annette Fisher, BRESRE Reality Inc., Fort Funding Corp., Bayada Home Health Care, Fox Rehabilitation and OnSite Providers.

“This is an enjoyable way, sailing on the water, for a fabulous networking party,” said President Wendy Black of ONYX Health Care Solutions.

“This is the best!” said Robert Howe, an estate, trust and wills attorney in Bay Ridge.

“It was our pleasure to provide fun, well-deserved hours of relaxation and enjoyment,” said Jeannine Valentine, director of sales service for Sunrise Senior Living of Sheepshead Bay. “Thank you to all on board for the hard work they do every day to better the quality of life for the people of Brooklyn.”

PESID was founded by Fisher a few years ago, bringing together professionals with expertise in every aspect of senior help and empowerment. Leaders in those various professions wrote a book, Seniors, Put Your Ducks in A Row: Protect Your Nest – Based on True Stories, expected to be published this fall.

PESID covers Brooklyn, Staten Island, Queens and Nassau. For more info, go to or call 347-291-7479.
