Vive La Villa

A sold-out, record-breaking success!

Celebrating our Foundation’s 40th anniversary, guests flooded Liuna Station in support of St. Joseph’s Villa for a soirée with all the style, flair and romance of Paris in springtime.

The evening was presented by long-time friends of the Villa Foundation, Taylor Steel. His Excellency, Bishop Douglas Crosby, Honourary Gala Chair, gave warm and deeply heartfelt remarks about the legacy that the Villa continues in our community and our exciting future of in caring for individuals and families with the opening of our new hospice in the fall of 2019. Maureen Ellis, our President & CEO, ignited the audience with her passion and powerful words of inspiration.

Past board members, political dignitaries, Villa staff, corporate partners, members of the medical community and friends of the Villa shared this historic moment and reflected on the impact and importance of caring for seniors during a commemorative video created by the talented team at Greening Marketing.

Gala Committee Chair Irene O’Byrne and her committee created an enchanting and unforgettable experience for guests. And there were a few surprises!

Our live auction nearly doubled in revenue thanks heated and nail-biting bidding wars over once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. Proceeds of the live auction go directly to support our hospice at St. Joseph’s Villa

The high-end, designer gifts featured in our silent auction and raffle delighted the imagination.

The multi-talented award-winning John Ellison and his band entertained our crowds and had them dancing until well after midnight.
