CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- HRHCare Community Health hosted its 12th Annual Cornucopia Benefit on Saturday, Oct. 15, and the event raised nearly $250,000 for its foundation, to help New Yorkers access heath care.
The farm-to-table restaurant Crabtree's Kittle House, in Chappaqua, hosted the benefit.
"We are thrilled with the success of the 12th Annual Cornucopia," said Anne Kauffman Nolon, president and CEO of HRHCare. "The funds we raised will bring much needed primary and preventive health care to the underserved populations in our communities and make sure that everyone has access to our high quality services."
The evening also recognized HRHCare's 40-plus years of providing quality health care to those in need, and looking to the future of the growing health care needs of the state. Funds raised at Cornucopia will go toward the HRHCare Foundation's efforts to help provide comprehensive primary and preventive health care to people in need throughout the Hudson Valley and Long Island.
The Foundation's work has impacted the lives of over 150,000 New Yorkers, providing care that they would otherwise have been unable to access.
The Foundation also recognized Laura DeMaria of Cortlandt Manor's Hemlock Hill Farm for her passion and dedication to providing naturally raised, hormone-free animals and produce to restaurants and markets across the Hudson Valley.
The event also honored ArchCare, the continuing care community of the Archdiocese of New York, for its efforts in providing health care services to communities in need throughout lower New York.
Earlier this year, ArchCare and HRHCare partnered to launch a Mobile Health Center van that serves agricultural workers and others in need across the Hudson Valley.
Scott LaRue, president and CEO of ArchCare, accepted the award on its behalf.
