For making the 42nd annual Ladies Auxiliary Tea a huge success!
Ladies Auxiliary Tea
A message from Sheila Burman, our Founding CEO!
Shalom Village was my baby. From 1970 when I first went to the government to ask what we could do to get a facility for Jewish seniors in Hamilton, to today when I see the tremendous growth that has taken place over the years.
SHALOM soon became a place that was visited, copied and admired throughout Ontario and despite the struggles and misfortunes of COVID, remains a leader in outstanding care for its residents. It has maintained its original concept of being a warm “home” emphasizing the individuality of each person living there. Today, as I reach the age of many residents, I have a great sense of pride in having accomplished the fulfillment of the dreams of many. How lucky have I been to have experienced this. May Shalom continue it’s wonderful work for many years to come.
I hope you will join me in supporting our seniors. Your donations are critical in ensuring that we can continue to give our seniors a warm and welcoming home. If you haven’t made your donation, it’s not too late to make your donation today!
About the Drive-Thru Tea
For decades the Ladies Auxiliary Tea has enjoyed hosting 200+ guests at Shalom Village to celebrate this storied event. During COVID lockdowns, we hosted online events, but it didn’t fully capture the essence of the Tea. So, in 2022, our wonderful team came up with the Drive-Thru Tea. Donors select a time-slot and drive by our main entrance where they are greeted by enthusiastic residents, staff and volunteers singing, dancing, and waving thank-you signs. Every participant receives a “basket” of goodies including: our famous sandwiches, scones, tea bags, gifts and other sweet treats!
We expect to resume our in-person Tea event in 2024, but until then, we hope you will join us for a little bit of Drive-Thru fun & frolic! To see how much fun can be had at our Drive-Thru Tea, please click here to view our 2022 Tea video on Youtube.
It’s also important to note that many of our supporters opt not to attend the event, and instead donate their Tea Basket to residents who might not otherwise have the ability to enjoy the Tea.
On behalf of all our residents: Thank you for your support!
