For 22 years, donors have generously supported Saint Simeon’s, Tulsa’s Senior Community, through the Western Days annual fundraiser. Saint Simeon’s is excited to announce that Western Days 2018: Wear Your Boots to Celebrate Our Roots will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2018, at Cox Business Center in Tulsa.
Lisa and Tom Schooley, Event Chairs for Western Days 2018, are gearing up for this year’s event, with Barbara and John Turner serving as Patron Chairs. Melissa and Mac Stallcup will serve as Auction Chairs.
Phyllis and Steve Anderson have been selected as Honorary Chairs for Western Days 2018. The Andersons are dedicated friends of Saint Simeon’s and avid supporters of Western Days. Steve has served on the Saint Simeon’s Home Board, and both Phyllis and Steve have been active in Western Days for more than a decade.
At Western Days 2018: Wear Your Boots to Celebrate our Roots, the Pioneer Spirit Award will be presented to Saint Simeon’s Resident Tom Mason. Tom left quite an impression on Tulsa during his 45-year law career. He was more than just an advocate for his clients; he became one of their greatest confidantes. One of Tom’s greatest struggles in life has been developing Parkinson’s disease, which he was diagnosed with 24 years ago. Saint Simeon’s applauds Tom Mason for his courage to battle his Parkinson’s daily through consistent exercise and care from specially-trained staff members at Saint Simeon’s.
Western Days 2018: Wear Your Boots to Celebrate our Roots promises to build on past successes, featuring a marvelous Silent Auction, as well as the always animated Live Auction. The evening will feature the traditional General Store stocked with handmade items from Saint Simeon’s Residents and volunteers, and of course, a delicious dinner. Returning to Western Days this year will be the popular MosCOWBOY Mule Raffle, a cocktail purchase that doubles as a raffle entry, and musical entertainment from Shelby Eicher and friends.
