United Hebrew to Honor Four at 99th Anniversary Gala October 4

As a nonprofit organization, we rely heavily on contributions from individuals, government, and business in order to provide the services and support to the seniors in our care. At our 99th Anniversary Gala on October 4, we will honor four individuals who have helped us to emerge as a leading and respected provider of senior care:

  • Donald Duberstein, past chair of the United Hebrew Board of Directors
  • Linda Elizaitis, president, CMS Compliance Group, Inc.
  • Scott Amrhein, president, CCLC of New York
  • Daniel Reingold, President & CEO, RiverSpring Health

“Collectively, their passion and leadership allows us to remain true to our nonprofit mission,” says Rita Mabli, president and CEO. “With the help and exceptional talents of these individuals, we are able to provide comprehensive services that allow seniors to age in place, and to be cared for under our umbrella of services, even as their healthcare needs change. These leaders are each a tremendous resource.”

The Autumn Celebration gala will be held at the Glen Island Harbor Club in New Rochelle on Thursday, October 4. It begins at 6 pm with cocktails, followed by a lavish buffet, entertainment, and awards ceremony. Visit our events page for tickets or sponsorship opportunities, or contact Grace Ferri at 914-632-2804 or gferri@uhgc.org.

The gala is our signature fundraising event and raises critical funds to support the services we offer, which include skilled nursing and rehabilitation, assisted living, Alzheimer’s and dementia care, and home health care. Proceeds support life-enriching activities, therapies and recreational programs that foster a meaningful lifestyle for residents across the campus.
