Winner of Free Parking Space in Bronxville Announced PDF Print Email

alt

By Kathleen Winter, Parking Raffle Chair, Senior Citizens Council

May 29, 2019:  Following the 99th annual Memorial Day parade, on a glorious day, Mayor Mary Marvin stood in front of Bronxville Village Hall and drew the winner of the annual free parking space raffle from an overflowing basket of ticket stubs. After reaching deep into the basket, she pulled a ticket and unfolded it. The ticket bore the name of Joe Houlihan, this year’s winner.

The Senior Citizens Council organizes the raffle each year to raise funds to support our senior citizens programs. The council is truly grateful to the Village of Bronxville for very generously contributing the incredible prize for the raffle. The council is also grateful to Citibank, OpaOpa Fresh Greek, and Studio One for their continued support. The council is very appreciative to everyone who bought raffle tickets and sent donations in support of this important fundraiser for our seniors.

As an avid volunteer and active member of the community, Paige has served with many local charities and civic organizations and is an especially active parishioner of Christ Church Bronxville. She has been an enthusiastic member of the musical therapy ensemble The Song Pipers, which performed at the event, for almost forty years. She donates her time, talent, and treasures where she thinks doing so might help others.

Gramatan Village's president, Kerry Walsh, said, “Paige brings happiness, joy, laughter, and fun to all of us. She is a shining example of spreading sunshine to all.” Gramatan Village's executive director, Sherry Saturno, remarked, "Frank Lloyd Wright once said, 'The longer I live, the more beautiful life becomes.' That notion is proved true to me every day by our members through their zest for life, enthusiasm, and community engagement. Thank you, Paige, for your amazing dedication to the community."
