VNA Health was founded more than a century ago by an exceptional woman, Marian Watts, and a group of public-spirited and far-sighted women. Our community has been blessed to have remarkable women and compassionate caregivers who have shaped the legacy of our community’s character, health, and ability to live well.
In honor of these amazing women and mothers in our community, every year, VNA Health celebrates two mothers – one living and one in memory – at our distinguished Mother’s Day Luncheon to share our gratitude for their lives and contributions to our community.
This year, VNA Health was proud to honor KEIKO DUNHAM and remember MARCELLA RINEHART PARKER at our beloved 21st Annual Mother’s Day Luncheon at the Rosewood Miramar Beach Hotel on Friday, May 6, 2022. These women epitomize compassion, kindness, and generosity — traits of the remarkable women who founded VNA Health in Santa Barbara more than 113 years ago.
We thank our community for their support, which funds our charitable community programs to ensure that we continue to bring health and comfort to Santa Barbara families. You may still join us online to watch a full video replay of the 2022 Luncheon; and celebrate these women with music, dance, and love. Stay tuned for the video link.
