Cable Car Caroling Fundraiser Brings Joy to Isolated Seniors, Disabled Adults

On December 2, Cable Car Caroling will once again bring holiday cheer to isolated older adults and adults with disabilities at assisted living centers, skilled nursing facilities and individual homes across San Francisco. Now a 33-year tradition, Cable Car Caroling brings together hundreds of carolers each year on 15 motorized cable cars to sing holiday songs to more than 1,000 seniors and disabled adults.

Last year, Cable Car Caroling raised $100,000 to support the Institute on Aging’s Friendship Line, the nation’s only accredited 24-hour crisis call center for lonely, isolated and depressed seniors and adults with disabilities. This year’s theme is From Generation to Generation, and reflects the history and community participation of this event now in existence for over three decades.

Community members are invited to take part in the Institute on Aging’s 33rd annual Cable Car Caroling fundraising event, beginning at 12:30 p.m. Back again this year is the Cable Car Caroling fundraising challenge. For every $100 raised, participants receive a free cable car ticket. Additional benefits include a festive holiday experience for all ages, a delicious holiday dinner with a variety of complimentary wines at no cost to participants, and a free raffle ticket for donated prizes.
