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 be held on Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2020, at the newly renovated Cox Business Center. The event will be the first to be held in the new Grand Hall at the Cox Center.
The theme for the 2020 Western Days is “Cheers to 60 Years” and will be a gala celebration in honor of Saint Simeon’s 60th anniversary.
Chairs of this year’s Western Days are Beth and Scott Brown and Honorary Chairs are Phyllis and George Dotson. (See list of committee members here.)
“This year’s Western Days promises to be the largest celebration in our 60-year history,” says Beth Brown, Chair.
The event will include live music by the popular Mid-Life Crisis Band, hundreds of exciting live and silent auction items, and more.

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 Business Center in downtown Tulsa. 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.
“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. 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.
