The 12th Annual Celebration of Life Gala

Will Be A Virtual Event

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to linger, The Village at Marymount has decided to move this year’s Celebration of Life Gala to a virtual-only event on Friday, September 24, 2021. We will live stream the event (see below) from Villa St. Joseph’s Assisi Hall.

As a health care community, we must set the right example, and that was pointed out to us by our Board of Directors on September 9, 2021 when they asked us to shift the gala to a virtual-only format.

Being a health care facility during these trying times of the COVID-19 pandemic poses many obstacles and challenges. We realize this decision was not made lightly.

We fully intend to hold the 2022 Celebration of Life Gala at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Cleveland Rockside in Independence. We will let you know just as soon as we confirm the date for next year’s event. Watch our website, text messages, and social media platform for exciting news about this year’s virtual gala, how you can bid on the spectacular auction items we have to offer, and details about next year’s event.

Thank you for your continued support of our gala. Please use this link to watch, participate in, and live stream this year’s Celebration of Life Gala.

Gather your friends and family and hold your own Gala “Watch Party” and enjoy the fun, the excitement, the videos, and the DEALS that we have in store for you! Send us your party pictures (email: and we’ll show them during the event — and post on our social media platforms.
