Reflecting on a Decade of Distinction

After a successful ten years, Saint Mary's Follies is ending on a high note. The final event was held in September of 2023, closing the curtain on a spectacular decade of highlighting the value and vibrancy that older adults bring to our community and society. At this time, Saint Mary's Home of Erie is not planning to host an event in 2024, but is continuing to explore opportunities for how we can best support our mission.

Saint Mary’s Follies served as an annual fundraising event that began in 2013, embracing the mission of Saint Mary’s and engaging the Erie community in acknowledging local seniors through the Ageless Remarkable Erieite Awards.

Thank you to all of the attendees, donors and sponsors who have supported Saint Mary's Follies through the years!

About the Event

An Evening of Inspiration & Entertainment

Those who supported and attended Saint Mary’s Follies enjoyed complimentary cocktails, an elegant dinner and live musical performances by local Erie talent. A poignant and inspirational award ceremony honoring local seniors concluded the evening. All proceeds from ticket sales, sponsorships and donations benefitted Saint Mary's Home of Erie.

The Ageless Remarkable Erieite Award

A select group of individuals nominated by the community were chosen yearly as recipients of the Ageless Remarkable Erieite Award. This award was given to seniors age 75 and older who have remained active in the Erie community, sharing their gifts and talents in selfless service to others. Honorees had a zest for life that was contagious and served as an inspiration for all who call Erie home.
