Autumn Leaves Luncheon – 2019

Autumn Leaves Luncheon - October 13, 2019

Elvis at Autumn Leaves LuncheonFamilies, friends, residents, the Sisters/Father, and staff gathered together with a common purpose: to raise funds for the renovations and infrastructure repairs at Mount St. Joseph.

Thanks to the generosity and hard work of so many, $127,400 was raised! This annual event is our largest fundraiser, and there was something for everybody: event sponsorships, Angel donations, in-kind donations, a live auction, high-value raffles, wine pull, raffle baskets, cash raffle, and 50/50 raffle.

A favorite venue, Venuti’s in Addison, offered a delicious multi-course meal. After lunch, “Elvis” descended a long staircase amidst happy cheers; then he sang while interacting with each of the residents. The dancing continued well into the afternoon as the DJs played the beloved oldies.

Autumn Leaves Luncheon 2020 will be held on Sunday, October 18th.
