Senior Gala 2012

Greenwich House hosted its Senior Gala on October 15, 2012 at the beautiful Tribeca Rooftop (2 Desbrosses Street) in celebration of the vital senior services it provides and the union of two great traditions to sustain a Caring Community.

Guests enjoyed musical entertainment, cocktails, dinner and a live auction. Read a letter of support from the Manhattan Borough President's office

The Honorable Thomas K. Duane, New York State Senator

After 14 years of distinguished service to the state, Senator Duane will be retiring from his seat. In representing the 29th Senate District, where Greenwich House senior centers are located, Senator Duane has fought to preserve rights for seniors and ensure funding for crucial programs like the ones Greenwich House provides. We are grateful for his many years of service.

Deborah H.M. McManus and the D J McManus Foundation

Through the commitment of Deborah McManus and The D J McManus foundation, she has created the "Eleanor's Outings" program for members of the Judith C. White Senior Center since 2007. The program provides complimentary tickets to fine arts performances around New York City, including concerts, ballet performances, Broadway theatre shows and opera. Eleanor’s Outings remain among the most coveted programs at the center; as one center member said "it increases the quality of our lives dramatically and is one of joys of getting old.”

The First Presbyterian Church in the City of New York

With the vision of the elders of The First Presbyterian Church and Betty Jones, Clerk of the Session, the Church was one of the original founding members of The Caring Community, which Greenwich House absorbed into its programming in July 2011. Though the senior center no longer is housed at First Presbyterian, the Church still continues to support the work on behalf of seniors in the community through a much needed grant to support the Social Work Intern Program. This program enables us to expand case assistance to seniors from throughout Greenwich House.


Acclaimed pianist and Greenwich House Music School Faculty Taka Kigawa will perform for guests during dinner. With a diverse repertoire spanning the classics to contemporary and known for a “thoughtful, meticulous” style of playing, The New York Times has said “he knows how to make this music sparkle."

The prestigious classical guitarist and fellow Greenwich House Music School Faculty Rupert Boyd will perform for guests during the cocktail reception. He has performed throughout North America, Europe and Australia, and has been described by The Washington Post as “truly evocative”, and by Classical Guitar Magazine as “a player who deserves to be heard.”
