RED... Celebrating 150 Years of Our Nation

On April 28th, 2017, 570 guests were greeted by the majestic sound of bagpipes and walked the red carpet at Liuna Station to celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday. The spectacular evening, sponsored by Dr. Michael Shih of Emshih Developments, reflected our lush landscapes, cultural heritage and outpouring kindness that distinguishes Canada from all others. Dr. Paul O’Byrne inspired guests with his passionate address about the importance of elder care and the honour and responsibility that comes with caring for our aging population. Corporate partners, Villa resident family members, political dignitaries and members of medical community from St. Joseph’s Health Care and McMaster University Faculty of Health Sciences gathered to demonstrate our community’s overwhelming support for the 390 residents at the Villa and hundreds of other seniors who we serve through outreach programs and services. We are grateful to our sponsors who contributed fabulous, unique items and experiences to our live and silent auctions. Guests danced the night away to the sweet, soulful sounds of John Ellison.
