May 2021 Newsletter

News, Newsletter
St Luke's Home Newsletter May 2021 CEO Report Where did April go?  I hope everyone is well. For me the month flew by; however, it could be because things around the Home have been very busy. It was the first time in 13 months the Elders left the Home for community outings, shopping, and visiting loved ones. St Luke’s Home continues to follow ADHS and Pima County guidelines on safety and sanitization protocols. On April 15, 2021, along with St Luke’s Home’s Board President, Michael McCrory, we hosted the State of the Annual Home Meeting and shared updates on Board Committee work. I shared several statistics on how St Luke’s Home beat the odds this past year. I also was honored to present St Luke’s Home’s new logo promoting a brighter…

Baile 102 Celebration

Baile 102 Celebration

Home Pg Feature
04/30/2021 The last in-person Baile de las Flores celebration was in 2019. The 100th Anniversary was absolutely beautiful at Star Pass Resort, with over 300 tickets sold and over $250,000 raised for the Elders. In 2020 St Luke’s Home had to cancel the 101st Baile at the last minute due to COVID-19, yet many donated the ticket cost instead of accepting a refund. This year, 102nd Baile was held at St Luke’s Home with the Elders participating in all the festivities! We enjoyed learning about the history of the Baile, listened to mariachi music, danced with the folklorico dancers, and raised our glasses to cheer the winner of the New Beginnings Champagne Basket.  Congratulations to St Luke’s Home Board Member, Maria Elena McElroy, who won the drawing for the New…

March 2021 Newsletter

Newsletter
St Luke's Home Newsletter March 2021 Honoring 102 Years of the Baile Since its launch in 1919, the Baile has been so well-organized by the big-hearted and hard-working women of the Board of Visitors that it quickly became the Event of the Season. Known for its glorious color and richness in culture, the Baile holds the trophy as the longest running annual social gala in Tucson, Arizona. In 2020 and 2021, the COVID pandemic gave rise to myriad of new safety precautions, including the cancellation of in-person events such as the Baile. For the 102nd Baile, in lieu of a beautiful ball, St Luke’s Home has gathered a variety of photos, articles, and advertisements, all courtesy of the Board of Visitors and their tireless archival efforts, to create a photo…

    St Luke's Home Newsletter February 2021 CEO Report I hope you and your loved ones are well. St Luke’s Home is excited to announce CVS Health came to the Home on February 10, 2021 to administer the first round of the Moderna vaccinations. The second doses are scheduled for March 10, 2021, with an extra date on April 7, 2021 – just in case someone misses one of the previous dates.   Everyone is feeling well and excited to get the second dose. There have been several questions on when St Luke’s Home will be back to “normal.”  Firstly, I am unsure what “normal” will look like.  Secondly, I continue to sit on local committees with the Pima County Health Department, receiving weekly updates on the vaccination roll out…

January 2021 Newsletter

St Luke's Home Newsletter January 2021 CEO Report Happy New Year, Friends! 2020 felt like the longest year on record because of the ongoing pandemic, but we made it through. It was tough for our Elders not to hug their loved ones regularly throughout the year and especially during the holidays, but they all remain free from the virus. We have missed our dedicated volunteers, but the staff continue to go above and beyond their normal duties to fill in the gaps as best we can. Without all the fundraising events, we saw some concerning financials, but our generous donors helped St Luke’s Home.  2020 was a year of patience, compassion, and fortitude, and we made it! In this issue, I hope you enjoy the article with our Best of 2020…
