Join us in toasting 50 years of Villa International’s hospitality the weekend of October 14-16, 2022
In the summer of 1972, Villa International opened its doors to the first of more than 27,000 guests who have found friendship and support in this welcoming and loving community. We invite you to join us in toasting 50 years of hospitality the weekend of October 14-16, 2022.
Villa friends, guest alumni from around the world, and community partners will find opportunities to reminisce and to play a role in securing Villa’s future. Events will include:
- Friday, October 14 at 7 PM: A guest reunion from around the world as we celebrate “Oktoberfest” on the Villa lawn. We will also be hosting a simultaneous virtual reunion where guest from the past who are unable to join us can participate and have a virtual toast in Villa’s honor.
- Saturday, October 15 at 3 PM: Join us for an afternoon celebration at Emory’s Miller-Ward Alumni House where we will celebrate the past 50 years of Villa. We also look forward to honoring Camille Gaffron, recently retired Executive Director, for her 22 years of service.
- Sunday, October 16th at 11 AM: Come back to Villa for a morning brunch and open house to visit with our guests and see where the next 50 years of Atlanta’s hospitality will happen.
Help us spread the word to all those who hold Villa dear — guests around the globe, former staff and Board members, donors, volunteers, and congregations. One ticket will provide entry into all three events!
