What a day we had for our 13th annual Golf Tournament this past June. We had a fantastic turnout in spite of 90+ degrees. There was some friendly competition and then cocktail hour, a delicious dinner and great auction as well. Many thanks to our major sponsors Adirondack Environmental Services, AARP, Albany Medical Center  as well as Blasch Ceramics and Phrma for their generous contributions.

Our 22nd Annual Gala was a fantastic event. Everyone had a great time. We celebrated service this year and we honored Dr. Judith Mysliborski with the Joseph Bosco Community Service Award for her many contributions to the community and we also honored the memory of Major General Harold Greene who lost his life in Afghanistan in 2014.

Featured Wine at our 22nd Annual Event

This year we featured a wine pull with 65 bottles of wine, many of them valued over $50 and a few valued over $120. We also invited our creative volunteers to craft items for our silent auction where we showcased a special section dedicated to local artists/volunteers. The items were amazing!!Thank you to all of our volunteers. In addition we invited volunteer/client pairs and read their stories along with some other stories of clients who couldn’t be there. What an interesting group of clients and volunteers we have!! The Bluz House Rockers provided our entertainment again. Thank you to our major sponsors Adirondack Environmental Services, Albany Medical Center, GCOM Software, CDPHP, AARP, NYS Funeral Directors and United Group of Companies.

 

Our 12th annual golf tournament is in the books and it was a fantastic event! The weather could not have been better and we had a nice turnout. Players enjoyed the well kept course, cocktails, appetizers, raffle/silent auction and delicious dinner at Orchard Creek Golf Course. Thanks again to our major sponsors: Adirondack Environmental Services, Blasch, Phrma, SEFCU, AARP and Albany Medical Center. Thank you for your continued support!
