Celebrate! 2020 Recap
Celebrate! 2020 Gala – a grand experiment and resounding success!
On September 13th, 2020 Mount Vernon At Home hosted its annual fundraising Gala online. The Village decided it would not be deterred by the COVID-19 pandemic, but pressed forward to plan and execute an extraordinary evening.
The business community rallied around with their support. We look forward to highlighting their work in our community in the coming year. You’ll find our listing of business and individual sponsors here.
Our ticketholders received a beautiful, gourmet dinner with wine, delivered to their homes! Eleven volunteer drivers delivered 82 dinners, wine and goodie bags to our members and friends throughout the Mount Vernon area. Right on time! While dinner was being served, we began our event with recorded messages from our members and a special message just for us from Senator Mark Warner. Do take a look at these messages below which show how much our members and volunteers appreciate the support and care of our community.
Finally, the evening was capped off by a live auction which raised over $12,000! Some exciting items were bid on including a private tour of the state Capitol, Nationals Tickets for 2021, George Washington Distilled whiskey, and more.
Mount Vernon at Home is one of 260 established senior Villages in the United States. We have over 150 members who enjoy the social interaction (yes on Zoom), the helpful services for the home, essential transportation and a shared goal of living securely, independently and happily at home!
