In rooms beautifully decorated in pink and white, Counseling Center staff, board members, and friends celebrated the contributions of honoree Rosanne Welshimer. Guests sampled food and drink while participating in raffles and both silent and live auctions.

Spirited bidding on a weekend at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Manhattan, tickets to Lincoln Center’s My Fair Lady with a backstage tour, and a private tennis lesson with Patrick McEnroe raised generous sums to support the work of The Counseling Center.

The high point of the brief public remarks was Rosanne’s heartfelt story of a neglected young boy she tutored while she was still a college student. The boy had no access to mental health care professionals who might have helped him heal from emotional trauma. Rosanne’s inspiring example of a lifetime of service in the Bronxville community inspired the generosity of others in turn, making the evening a great success.
