Tickets are now on sale for this year’s May 2nd Gourmet Galaxy, Scarsdale Edgemont Family Counseling Service’s annual fundraiser, to be held at Westchester Country Club. Guests will sample fine cuisine and treats from an array of local restaurants beginning at 6:30 p.m. A silent auction will be held featuring luxury items, along with hors d’oeuvres and fine wines, and an Apple iPad to be raffled.
Scarsdale Edgemont Family Counseling Service presents its “Open Door Award” annually for outstanding community involvement. The agency is particularly proud to extend the award this year to include global involvement and awareness of women’s issues. The award recipient, Sheryl WuDunn, is a Pulitzer Prize winner, business executive, entrepreneur and longtime Scarsdale resident and mother of three. She is a best-selling author and her latest book, “Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide”, was co-authored with her husband, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, and focuses on the challenges facing women around the globe and the struggle for gender equality.
Client fees and insurance plans only cover a portion of the work undertaken by Scarsdale Edgemont Family Counseling Service. The event is a celebration of community support, confidence and contributions.
Tickets are $200 ($150 for first time attendees). For information and tickets, visit www.sfcsinc.org or call the office at 914-723-3281. Their motto is “it all starts with an open door.”
