Light of Hearts Villa shone a light on loved ones and heroes with a special luminary at a virtual event on September 16 called Luminary Illuminations, which raised more than $65,000 for the Sister Helen T. Scasny SC Benevolent Fund. The virtual event was held during National Assisted Living Week (September 12-18) to honor those who make life a bit brighter for others while supporting residents through donations.
For the event, which was broadcast on Facebook, the Light of Hearts Villa chapel was lined with luminaries with each loved one's name. The live broadcast was dedicated to honoring each person, while sharing a heart-warming tribute video to residents and staff, and hearing about the heroes being honored through donations. On September 18, Mass was offered for all of those who contributed to the fundraiser.
“A sincere thank you to our incredible community who helped us raise just over $65,000. Whether you participated in the online auction or raffle, made a luminary tribute gift in honor or in memory of a loved one, or were one of our generous event sponsors, you helped us exceed our goal of raising $60,000,” said Light of Hearts Villa Executive Director Breanne Cavileer.
