Regina Health Center celebrates 20 years of providing care and compassion with several anniversary events

Regina Health Center (RHC) celebrated 20 years of care in style with several special events for residents, supporters and caregivers during 2013. The celebration events kicked off with a party for RHC staff that included lunch and a special anniversary gift. In August, residents enjoyed a full-day celebration. The day began with Mass celebrated by The Most Reverend Richard Lennon, Bishop of Cleveland, followed by a luncheon for residents and their families and friends. The Friends of Regina volunteers created 20th anniversary cakes and threw a casino-themed party where residents gambled with play money.

Supporters and friends came together for another casino-themed party September 28 at the historic Silver Grille at the Higbee Building in downtown Cleveland. The Ritz-Carlton catered dinner for the event, which raised nearly $80,000 from sponsorships, a silent auction, raffles, casino games and additional gifts for RHC’s new endowment fund.

The Most Reverend Roger W. Gries, OSB, Auxiliary Bishop of Cleveland, served as honorary chair and RHC board member, Katie Koch, served as chair. Circle of Abiding Love Society members enjoyed a special reception before the event to meet RHC’s new Executive Director Mark Yantek, new RHC Board President Dave Simia and newly elected members of the leadership team for the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine. Bishop Gries thanked everyone for their generous hearts and spoke about the importance of RHC’s new endowment fund for the future. All guests received a commemorative booklet created just for the occasion. The booklet included artwork and writings by RHC residents, plus photos and details about the ornate stained glass windows in the RHC chapel.
