Community members came together to celebrate life and the holiday season when Hospice of Westchester (HOW) recently hosted its 17th annual “Tree of Life” Reception at The Hilton Westchester in Rye Brook, N.Y.

Attendees were invited to make a donation to the organization through the purchase of a gold star in memory or in honor of a loved one. During the event, which took place on November 28, guests and sponsors came together to place the personalized gold stars on the “Tree of Life.”

The evening’s festivities featured holiday entertainment provided by Manhattanville College’s elite pop vocal group, The Quintessentials. Lisa Sandagata, MA, MT-BC, from The Music Conservatory of Westchester’s Music Therapy Institute, played piano for attendees prior to the start of the program.

“This can be a difficult time of year for those who have recently lost loved ones, or those who have a family member diagnosed with a life-limiting illness,” said Mary K. Spengler, MS, chief executive officer of HOW. “Our ‘Tree of Life’ reception provides an opportunity for members of the community to join us to create a sense of family and love.”

The Grand Sponsors of the event were Beecher Flooks Funeral Home, Inc., The Hildegarde D. Becher Foundation, Inc. and Patricia & Charles Trainor. Sponsors included AliGraphics; Co-Communications, Inc.; Cuddy & Feder LLP; The Hilton Westchester; The Kensico Cemetery; Polchinski Memorials, Inc.; Ross Mailing Services, Inc.; and Sterling National bank.

All proceeds from the event will benefit HOW’s mission of striving to provide extraordinary and dignified comfort, care and compassion to individuals and families facing a serious or life-limiting illness.
