Love is Here to Stay
On September 8, 2022 about 415 guests filled the Grand Ballroom of the Bayfront Convention Center to support the mission of Saint Mary's and to celebrate remarkable seniors in the Erie community. The event, led by Chair Couple Bridget and John Barber, raised over $99,000 through ticket sales, sponsorships and donations. Rev. Charles Brock, Joseph and Anita Salvia, and Rena Wierbinski were honored as the 2022 Ageless Remarkable Erieites.
Live musical entertainment, inspired by the works of George Gershwin, was performed by local talent including Sherree Beltz, Charles Corritore, Gretchen Kerr, Jean and Michael Malthaner, Kate and Patrick Thiem, Rich Tryzbiak, and Brandon Vogt.
We are grateful for all who attended, donated or sponsored the event and we look forward to 2023!
