Get Tickets Now for Sages Event

Tickets are now available for the Nov. 11 reception at which we will celebrate the civic contributions of this year’s Sages Over 70.

They’ll be the toast of the town as we honor their accomplishments in the November/December issue of dsm magazine and pay tribute to them personally at the annual reception, this year at the Sheraton West Des Moines Hotel, where each will share insights into their approach to life. In addition to success in their own careers, each has contributed significantly in the personal development of others, in the growth of Greater Des Moines, and in support of charitable causes and institutions. This year’s Sages:

    • Penny Furgerson, choreographer, pharmacist and mentor.
    • Ruth Ann Gaines, legislator, teacher and mentor.
    • Ruth and Tom Harkin, double honorees who have devoted their lives to public service.
    • John Pappajohn, business developer and philanthropist.
    • Ila Plasencia, Latina community leader and civic volunteer.
    • Mary Seidler, banker, commercial real estate broker and arts advocate .

Don’t miss the reception. It’s a highlight on our calendar, leaving attendees inspired and proud of the community we share. Tickets are $50 each. Click here for tickets and more information.
