Almost 200 guests turned out for an elegant and festive evening at SPARC’s most successful fundraiser in history! Driving up to through the beautiful gilded age estate at Sleepy Hollow Country Club already set the mood for something special, but at first site of the mansion’s entrance was a magnificent hoops performance by Mikyla, glowing in the sunset as guests arrived. As we stepped inside, there was an exciting welcome with sets and decor design by Geneva and Maria, giving the creative and fun feel of Cirque du Soleil. Guests mingled, sampled wines, vodkas and cocktail buffet, while entertained by the Chris Melito jazz quartet, Cheryl’s impressive singing and finally an aerial performance by Hillary Sweeney. Our emcee, Troy Bowers of the Knicks organization, and participant speaker Louis Milone added great touches to the evening. Thanks to photographer Robert Consetino for the great memories. Our honorees were recognized for their longtime support of SPARC in so many ways and their friends and families created a warm atmosphere for us all.
Much appreciation to our 2014 honorees:
And thanks for all the participation in our raffle, silent auction, bucket auction and donations that will help make SPARC’s 2014 program year full of fun and friendship for participants in our 80+ weekly programs.
