The long awaited season of spring was welcomed at our Bees and Blossoms Spring Gala at Anthony’s Pier 9 on March 29, 2014.  The event welcomed guests who came to honor Dr. John and Marilyn D’Ambrosio for their years of dedication and to celebrate the care, comfort and compassion that Hospice of Orange and Sullivan Counties, Inc. provides to our communities. 

The gala committee, chaired by Helen Richards and Rachelle Klugman did a great job, along with Gloria Alisandrella, Special Events Director to let all know that spring was indeed in the air with honey jars, flowers and bees that graced the lovely spring like table settings. The highly anticipated annual gala netted more than $107,000 for the organization.
