Western Days – Saint Simeon’s annual fundraising gala – continues to be one of Tulsa’s most beloved and popular annual events.
This year, the 24th annual Western Days will celebrate the 60th anniversary of Saint Simeon’s, and will be held on September 15, 2020 in the new Ballroom at the Cox Center – one of the first events to be held at the newly renovated facility.
Be sure and save the date for Western Days and watch this space for updates throughout 2020.
Chairs of 2020 Western Days will be Beth and Scott Brown, longtime Saint Simeon’s supporters and 2019 Chairs of last year’s highly successful Live Auction.
Last year, the 23rd annual Western Days celebration recorded its highest level of success in Saint Simeon’s history, raising more than $800,000. More than 700 guests attended the festivities at the Cox Center. The theme for the evening was “Fiesta!”
“The success of Western Days in 2019 can be attributed to the dozens of volunteers, including foundation and home board members, Western Days committee members, resident families, and Saint Simeon’s staff,” says Melissa Stallcup, who served as Co-Chair of the event, along with her husband Mac. “The entire Saint Simeon’s family came together to celebrate and honor the home, its residents, and our dedicated supporters.”
The event also featured the “Lots of Love” campaign in which guests kicked in $90,000 to purchase a new bus that can accommodate up to six passengers in wheelchairs.
Western Days also featured the popular Mid-Life Crisis Band, general store, photo booth, a fantastic meal and hundreds of interesting silent and live auction items.
“We are so grateful for the outpouring of support at Western Days,” says Angela Green, President and CEO of the Saint Simeon’s Senior Living Community. “We would not be able to provide our residents with extra amenities and an even higher quality of life without Western Days support.”
Honorary Chairs of the evening were Gayle and Frank Eby, Patron Chairs were Hilary and Tom Clark and Barbara and John Turner, Live Auction Chairs were Beth and Scott Brown, and Silent Auction Chairs were Phyllis and George Dotson. Saint Simeon’s resident Kay Herring received the Pioneer Spirit Award. Lisa Gray of the Foundation Office spent many hours working to make Western Days a success, and support was provided by a local event and auction firms, including Rumbledrum and fundyourorg.com.
“We would like to thank the many members of our Patron and Advisory Committees for all their hard work in making Western Days the best ever,” says Melissa Stallcup.
