BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – Despite rain drizzling from the skies, nearly $80,000 was raised to benefit the Jansen Hospice in Scarsdale during its annual spring cocktail party that was held at a private home in Bronxville.
This year’s spring benefit was the largest ever, with more than 250 tickets sold to the event, organizers said. In total, $77,500 was raised that will be used to benefit the hospice staff and patients.
The cocktail party was co-chaired by Emily Liggitt and Katie Hood at the home of Christine and John Fitzgibbons in Bronxville.
Funds raised during the event will be used to allow Jansen Hospice to provide end-of-life care. Each year, more than 500 patients benefit from its programs and services, officials said.
