PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- Hope's Door is celebrating 35 years of service to victims of domestic violence and their families throughout Westchester County at its annual Spring Gala Friday, April 24 at the Apawamis Club in Rye.
Ingrid Connolly, of Waccabuc, will be honored for her dedication to Hope’s Door’s mission for 22 years. Scott McGee, Anchor of News 12 Westchester, will be the emcee and the Joe D’Elia Band will be the evening’s entertainment.
“I’m very excited to be a part of this worthy cause. It was one of the first events I did when I moved here and I’m honored they keep asking me back. I can’t wait to see what they do to up the ante this year,” McGee said.
“I’ve been with the organization for eighteen years, and I have seen countless examples of the extraordinary strength, courage and resiliency of those we serve. I have also witnessed the extraordinary generosity of those who share in our mission and support our work in countless ways.” said Carl La Horton, executive director of Hope’s Door. “In the years to come – and until we end domestic violence – we will need your help to keep our doors and hearts open to those who yearn for safety, independence, and healing from the trauma of abuse.”
The gala will feature a cocktail hour, live and silent auction, Fund-a-Need, and dinner and dancing. The goal is to fundraise for the many services Hope’s Door provides to the victims of abuse, their families and also the community.
