BRONX, N.Y. (PRWEB) May 01, 2019 -- On April 16, Calvary Hospital hosted its annual Spring Donor Reception at The New York Botanical Garden. Nearly 400 people gathered at the picturesque site to hear about the latest news from the hospital and view a brief video presentation that spoke about the mission of Calvary.
Two donors, William Houlihan of Allendale, N.J. and Ketly Wright, of Charlotte, N.C., both of whose parents were cared for by the hospital, were featured speakers and shared their experiences with CalvaryCareSM. While Mr. Houlihan was a first-time attendee, Mrs. Wright, a former resident of the Bronx, has been in attendance since the first donor reception in 2001, traveling nearly 650 miles every year.
Guests also enjoyed The Orchid Show: Singapore, which was on display in the Garden Conservatory, and a buffet dinner while being serenaded by a jazz duo.
Since 1899, Calvary has been the nation’s only fully accredited acute care specialty hospital devoted exclusively to providing palliative care to adult patients with advanced cancer and other life-limiting illnesses. Each year, thousands of patients receive CalvaryCareSM throughout the Greater New York Area. To learn how Calvary can help you and your family, please visit http://www.calvaryhospital.org.
