Support Connection will host their 15th Anniversary Celebration on Saturday, April 14, 2012 at Colonial Terrace, 119 Oregon Road, Cortlandt Manor, NY. Support Connection, Inc. is celebrating 15 years of service, offering help and hope to people with breast and ovarian cancer. The evening will include cocktails, dinner, dancing, silent auction and more.
At this celebration Support Connection will announce the recipients of their 2012 Spirit Awards. The Spirit Awards are given each year to honor those who contribute to the organization’s mission by providing inspiration, time, talent and other resources. In addition, to commemorate celebrating 15 years, this year they will recognize 15 “Unsung Heroes” who have helped Support Connection grow throughout the years.
This year’s Spirit Award recipients are:
SPIRIT OF HOPE AWARD: Jane Gentile, Shrub Oak, NY: Honored for her dedication, support and commitment to us and the community. Her willingness to share her own story as a cancer survivor and her dedication has translated into raising awareness as well as funds to support our programs and services.
BEACON OF LIGHT: Margaret Zulkowsky, Yorktown, NY and Brenda Maxwell, Fishkill, NY: Honored for being an inspiration to so many cancer survivors. By taking their own experiences and translating them into an opportunity to reach out to others and raise awareness, they give people the tools to find their inner strength.
HUMANITARIAN OF THE YEAR: Dana Boulanger, Natural Awakenings, Lincolndale, NY: Honored for her continuous support of our programs throughout the years. Thanks to her efforts and promotion of our programs and events, Dana has increased our reach into the community.
