Dear Friends and Supporters of Methodist Home:
I am pleased to extend this invitation to reserve sponsorships, tickets and journal advertisements for the Methodist Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation’s An Evening Under the Stars Gala, which will be held on Thursday, October 24, 2013 at the Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle, NY.
Hidden away in the Fieldston community of Riverdale, the Methodist Home is a 120-bed, skilled nursing facility located in one of the City’s most beautiful neighborhoods. It combines an historic residence with some of the most modern and comprehensive short-term rehabilitation and long-term care offerings available anywhere to meet the evolving health care needs of today.
At October’s event, we will be honoring The Reverend Dr. Stephen P. Bauman, Senior Minister of Christ Church in Manhattan, and his wife, Melissa Bauman, who is the Director of Development at The Town School. Over the past quarter century, Dr. Bauman has revitalized Christ Church, focusing his tremendous capabilities on strategic vision, growth and leadership development, energies that he and his wife have also generously directed to our work here at Methodist Home.
We will also be honoring two physicians from New York-Presbyterian/The Allen Hospital who have both been prominent leaders in their focus on the health care needs of the poor, the elderly, and the disabled: Joseph Tenenbaum, MD, who is Chief of the Medicine Division at the Hospital, as well as the Edgar Leifer Professor of Clinical Medicine at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons; and Evelyn C. Granieri, MD, MPH, MSEd, who is Chief of the Division of Geriatric Medicine at both the Hospital and at Columbia’s medical school.
The evening’s Honorary Dinner Co-Chairs are David Cohen of Medline Industries and Judy Schueler of Precision Health.
An Evening Under the Stars Gala is Methodist Home’s most important fundraiser of the year, with proceeds being used to improve the lives of our Residents through facility upgrades and program enhancements. In this difficult economic climate, more than ever we count upon private support to be able to continue providing quality programs. Please take a moment now to use the attached form to reserve your sponsorship, tickets and journal advertisement today. A formal invitation will follow in the Fall.
I look forward to seeing you in October!
Maria Perez, LNHA
