2021 Virtual Annual Gala
& Silent Auction

Saturday, March 13, 6:00-7:30 pm

SSA would like to thank everyone who helped make our Virtual Annual Gala on Saturday, March 13, a resounding success!  Funds raised by the gala will help us continue our work for Alexandria’s older adults, including delivering meals and groceries to those who are homebound, matching socially isolated seniors with Friendly Visitors for casual conversations, training and materials for our corps of Senior Ambassadors, who are vital information sources within their communities, and virtual programming, like our popular workshops and speaker events, and much more!

Gala Highlights:

More than 100 people attended, with many getting in the spirit by wearing formal attire.

Corey Branham, general manager at the Westin Alexandria’s Trademark restaurant, helps set the tone for the gala by demonstrating the proper way to mix a Carlyle Sour.

Honoree Eugene Steuerle discusses the importance of legacy giving

2021 Honoree The Honorable William Euille

2021 Honoree Kate Garvey

Contests kept the action lively, as attendees competed for prizes in SSA trivia and best dressed contests.


Remembering the fun times of galas past, and looking forward to returning in-person for 2022 (we hope)!
