Senior center auction aims for 'peace of mind'

Rose Villa Senior Living’s Foundation will host its fifth annual auction at 6:30 p.m. Friday, April 11.

Held at the Historic Dance Pavilion at Oaks Park, the foundation hopes to exceed its fundraising goal of $65,000 for the event, which will directly benefit Rose Villa’s senior residents. Established 52 years ago, the Rose Villa Foundation aims to provide security to its residents through necessary financial support.

Set to the theme of classic Hollywood glamour, auction attendees will enjoy local food and wine and live music inspired by the classic movies that defined the Old Hollywood era.

“We look forward to the auction event every year, but this year, we are especially excited,” said Vassar Byrd, CEO of Rose Villa. “The current state of the health care industry means it’s more essential than ever to provide security and peace of mind for our residents who find themselves in an unexpected financial emergency.”

Later this year, Rose Villa will break ground on a remodeled campus that will feature a pocket-style neighborhood, retail space and public dining. Continued support of the foundation is crucial in maintaining efforts to create financial safety nets for new and current residents who need it.
