Annual Spring Donor Appreciation Reception

NYBG 2019
On April 16, 2019, Calvary Hospital hosted their Annual Spring Donor Reception at The New York Botanical Garden. Nearly four hundred people gathered at the picturesque site to hear about the latest news from the Hospital and view a brief video presentation that spoke about the mission of Calvary.

Two donors, William Houlihan of Allendale, NJ and Ketly Wright, of Charlotte, North Carolina, both of whose parents were cared for by the Hospital, were featured speakers and shared their experiences with CalvaryCare®. While Mr. Houlihan was a first time attendee, Mrs. Wright, a former resident of the Bronx, has been in attendance since the first donor reception in 2001, traveling nearly 650 miles every year.

Guests also enjoyed The Orchid Show: Singapore, which was on display in the Garden Conservatory, a buffet dinner and were serenaded by a jazz duo. Artwork created by children who participated in Calvary’s bereavement support groups was also displayed for guests. Susan Paolercio was the lucky raffle winner of a dining experience for four at the Hudson Garden Grill.

The favor given to guests consisted of a flower pot with soil pods and seed paper, which will grow into wildflowers. Guests were encouraged to plant the flowers in memory of a loved one and share the flowers using #CalvaryFlowers on social media platforms.
