HRHCare (Hudson River HealthCare), a nonprofit, federally qualified health care system offering a range of medical services for underserved communities throughout the Hudson Valley and Long Island, recently raised over $200,000, including a special fund for early cancer detection and prevention, at their Cornucopia 2014 celebratory benefit held at Tarrytown’s Castle Hotel and Spa. Receiving awards at the event for promoting local health and agriculture were Michael J. Dowling, President and CEO of the North Shore-LIJ Health System, and restaurateurs Glenn and Merry Anne Vogt and John Crabtree. Chef Jill Rose, formerly of Chiboust Bistro + Bakery in Tarrytown, was also honored for her support of HRHCare’s commitment to early cancer detection and prevention. This annual event seeks to cultivate philanthropic relationships and raise charitable dollars to continue HRHCare’s mission of providing quality primary and preventive care to those most in need.
