Celebrating Our 2013 Gala Honorees
Red Door Award honorees: Margot Milberg, Gerri Sommers and Cindy Musoff, with Stephanie Falk, GCW Director of Development
Our Annual Comedy Gala is a special night to share laughter and enjoy one another's company. It is also our opportunity to recognize some of the inspiring people who make Gilda's Club Westchester such an incredibly warm and supportive place.
This year, three women will receive the Red Door Award in recognition of their philanthropy and commitment to cancer support. Honorees Margot Milberg, Cindy Musoff and Gerri Sommers have co-chaired our annual Women's Tennis Classic since its inception in 2009. In just four years, their tireless dedication has grown the event from just 16 players the first year to 60 players plus even more attending the corresponding luncheon this past summer. In addition to raising awareness in the community about our offerings, this classic has raised significant funding so that we can continue to offer our programs free of charge. With these three women leading the charge, we know it's only going to keep getting better.
Volunteer of the Year Honorees: Stacey Wechsler and Michele Benach, with Wayne Benach
Dynamic mother-daughter duo Michele Benach and Stacey Wechsler are this year's recipients of the Barbara Bennett-Rones Volunteer of the Year Award. In addition to securing incredible items for the 2012 Gala's Silent Auction, Michele and Stacey expertly planned and produced the auction which went on to raise over $17,000. Michele previously served on our Board of Directors and both women continue to serve on various Gilda's Club Westchester committees and are committed to raising our profile in the community.
Our 2013 Corporate Honorees are Cuddy & Feder, LLP and its Managing Partner, William S. Null, Esq. Bill is the Immediate Past President of Gilda's Club Westchester and has served as a member of our Board of Directors since 2001. Bill has been actively involved in Gilda's Club Westchester's work from the very beginning and was instrumental in securing the current site for our clubhouse on 80 Maple Avenue, White Plains, NY. Cuddy & Feder has been a major supporter of Gilda's Club Westchester throughout the years due to Bill's dedicated commitment to our mission.
