Guests will have the opportunity to bid on exciting vacation destinations an unique experiences during the live auction. The silent auction features items from Cleveland’s sports, dining, travel, and entertainment scenes.

“We are excited to have our gala return to Embassy Suites, which is the site of our first gala in 2010,” said Sue Nall, RN, LNHA, Executive Director of The Village at Marymount. “This year, as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of Villa St. Joseph and The Village at Marymount, it seemed appropriate that we host the gala at the same place we started eight years ago.”
