2021 Celebration of Life Gala
Another Rousing Success

If you missed the opening of The Village at Marymount’s 12th annual Celebration of Life Gala, which was live streamed as a virtual event on YouTube on September 24, you may have noticed that Sister Mary Alice Jarosz has magical powers no one knew about. ​

Sister Mary Alice, Director of Mission Integration, was asked by gala master of ceremonies and auction Bob Hale, to “beam me up” when he opened the event outside at the Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa. ​

​Once inside, Sister can be seen wondering where Hale went … and then if by magic makes him reappear.​

The magic carried over for the next one-and-a-half hours as generous sponsors and donors paved the way for the gala to raise nearly $200,000 before expenses. ​

“Bob (Hale) sparked an inspiring level of energy that helped make us all look good and ad-libbed us through a couple glitches that kept us looking good,” Sister Mary Alice said. ​

Executive Director Sue Nall praised the efforts of the Gala Committee.​

“What an absolutely incredible event,” Sue said. “From Bishop Roger’s prayer to the song by Milan (Tori Kurtz). It was great to see some new staff members bidding away and of course all our regular supporters participating.​

“Thank you to each committee member for all that you contributed to make this Gala such a success to continue our ministry.”​

Next year’s gala will be held from 6 to 11 p.m. on Friday September 23, 2022 at Embassy Suites in Independence.​ Save the date!
