ST. CHRISTOPHER'S 2023 GOLF CLASSIC
Despite recurrent rainy weather in recent weeks, October 10th turned out to be a beautiful day at Leewood Golf Club for St. Christopher's 2023 Golf Classic. Just ask the nearly 80 golfers on hand, who along with our guests, made this annual fundraiser a success. The foursome that placed first among 19 to win this year's Golf Classic—Willis Saintil, Isaiah Pietri, Joseph Tellez, and Luis Vegerano—are all members of the Westchester Alphas, the storied, African-American college fraternity.
At our post-golf reception, St. Christopher's CEO, Dr. Sarah Ruback, expressed her deepest gratitude to all of our event participants—including, pictured above, members of the Dobbs Ferry Police Department—and especially to our sponsors and donors, including:
- Champion Sponsors: Mark Leonard, a Tony Award-nominated theater producer of stellar productions on Broadway and London's West End; and Joe Randazzo & ProfTech, our office products partner
- Visionary Sponsors: Larry Weiss & Atlantic, Tomorrow’s Office, our office technology partner; and Smart Choice Communications
- Hero Sponsors: Alan Wilensky & USI Insurance Services, our insurance partner; and Bill Imbesi & Toshiba
- Benefactor Sponsors: Jack Wilk & Wilk Auslander, our legal counsel; David Wurf & Equitable, our financial partner; and Dr. Frank & Maggie Belloni

ST. CHRISTOPHER'S 2023 HEALTH & HARMONY GALA
The beautifully-appointed Terrace Room of Glen Island Harbour Club was the setting on April 19 for St. Christopher's 2023 Health & Harmony Gala, an evening during which guests experienced stirring stories, enjoyed engaging conversations, great food and music, and together, renewed our shared commitment to help children and families in need build better lives.
Sponsors' and guests' generosity benefitted music, fitness, culinary and sensory enrichment programs for youth in our Residential Treatment Center program. But the event was not just a fundraiser...rather, it was a celebration during which we were moved and enriched by the journeys of two St. Christopher's alumni, Jennie White and Frances Gonzalez. Throughout their lives, they have personified the power of resilience and perseverance. When faced with trauma and setbacks they chose not to succumb or adapt to their hardships, but rather to turn adversity into advantage and evolve into their best selves. That evening, Jennie was presented with the first of two 2023 ETTA Awards "for inspiring youth to pursue their dreams and live purposeful lives"; Frances, CEO of VeganWines.com, is a 2020 ETTA recipient.
St. Christopher's presented its second 2023 ETTA Award to Valley Bank, represented by Joe McCoy and his Team, "for bettering life in its communities and building a more sustainable world." Valley's integral role in strengthening the quality of life for all in the communities its serves includes a long-term banking and philanthropic partnership between St. Christopher's and John Tolomer and Westchester Bank, with whom Valley merged in 2021. We are thrilled Valley is continuing this legacy of support for our work.
