Samaritan will hold its annual Celebration of Life Gala, presented by Holman Enterprises, virtually in 2021. The Gala, entitled Be A Samaritan: Celebration of Life, will celebrate the dedicated work and success of the special people who comprise the Samaritan team, particularly honoring their efforts during the coronavirus pandemic.
“In 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic, Samaritan never once ceased to provide professional care, services, and support to those in need,” said Mary Ann Boccolini, president and CEO of Samaritan. “Our 2021 Gala will certainly be unique, as we invite everyone to join us from the comfort of their own homes. This year, we are taking our Gala virtual – just another fine example of our organization’s amazing ability to adapt creatively during this year of constant uncertainty and change!”
