Giving Tuesday and Thanksgiving are just around the corner so our blog in the next week will be giving thanks! Our hearts are full of the love our community shared with Nyack Center at our Legacy Gala! It was a wonderful evening honoring Donna Cox, Susan Wilmink and Thomas Schneck to benefit our beloved Nyack Center! Thank you to Steve Canal and family, Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty, Docuware, Christopher St. Financial, and R2M Realty and all our sponsors, Festoon and Kristina Burns, our amazing board, staff and community of support.

One of the wonderful things that happened at our Legacy Gala was the presentation of the first annual Jo and Peter Baer "I made a difference" Legacy Scholarship. The award is meant to aknowledge and inspire young people to follow in the footsteps of our wonderful supporters Jo and Peter Baer. The award was created by and presented by Kelly Baer Mayhew and her sister Barbara Baer to Shantel Sellers. For more information go to our website www.nyackcenter.org
