Gala, holding flowersLong awaited springtime finally came on March 24, 2018 at Anthony’s Pier 9.  The beautiful pearl themed decor convinced even the skeptic that spring had finally arrived. The flowers, strands of pearls and driftwood that adorned the tables made everyone forget the threat of another nor’easter.

The 30th Anniversary of Hospice of Orange and Sullivan Counties was a evening of celebration of all who helped reach this amazing milestone. Staff, volunteers, and board members were recognized for their years of  support and selfless dedication to patients and families cared for each and every day.

Our auction donors, sponsors, and almost 300 guests were responsible for the success of our 30th Anniversary Pearl Gala which netted more than $105,000 for the organization.

Co-Chairs of the Gala Committee, Joann Menendez and Lauren Ostner were thanked for their hard work along with committee members, Adrianna Andrade, Gianna Franco, Linda Goldstein, Rachelle Klugman and Taylor Raimondo, along with Hospice Special Events Director, Gloria Alisandrella.   Special thanks to our Event Sponsor, The Kaplan Family Foundations.
