A Gala Reimagined
This past year has proven difficult for all of us, particularly for residents in long-term care who sadly are most at risk and impacted by COVID-19. One thing that has stood out to us as a long-term care facility is our community’s compassion for our residents, resident families, caregivers and staff at the Villa. We call each one of the people who have touched the Villa in any way this year our HEROES.
Each Spring, St. Joseph’s Villa Foundation hosts its annual Gala to raise funds necessary to support the care provided to 400 residents and the thousands of local seniors and community members involved in our outreach programs. Although we may face unknown challenges this year, the Villa Foundation must continue to fundraise to provide the necessary programs and services to our residents and community and support the care of residents in the Hospice once it opens this summer.
We will safely be hosting HEROES, our 20th Annual Gala Event, in the afternoon of Wednesday, June 2nd, 2021. For the first time in its history, the Villa Gala will come home to staff and residents as our guests. They have been our inspiration and our heroes during this challenging year, and we look forward to honouring them.
Each resident home area will be decorated in themed Gala décor as we invite our Villa guests to dress to the nines, have music and dancing, topped with a beautiful meal provided by LiUNA Station. Our residents are very excited, and they are looking forward to their special Gala day!
