Cabrini of Westchester recognized the achievements of three honorees at its 18th Annual Fundraising Event, The Sharing in Mission Dinner held on May 25, 2016 at the beautiful Tappan Hill Mansion in Tarrytown, NY. Thanks to the honorees, sponsors, donors and the 2016 Sharing in Mission Dinner Event Committee of which, His Eminence, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, was the honorary chair. The evening was a tremendous success and netted over $180,000 to benefit the ministry of Cabrini of Westchester!
The Sea of Celebration theme added a lot of frivolity to the evening. Guests were greeted by little mermaids handing out seashell leis as they entered the mansion. Upon entering the dining room, they were enchanted by the sea décor featuring a driftwood arbor, sea fans, sea shells, starfish and the elaborate high and low colorful coral centerpieces that topped off the aquatic theme. Mike Bennett, a local radio host, kicked off the evening with his great wit followed by moving speeches from each of the three honorees.
