GREENWICH, Conn. – Taste the Towns drew more than 250 guests to The Stanwich Club for a delicious night of creative cocktails, fine wineries and scrumptious bites in support of the hundreds of vital outreach services provided to residents of Fairfield and Westchester counties by Community Health at Greenwich Hospital.
Event chair Geri Corrigan and an enthusiastic committee of volunteers created a night to remember with fantastic silent auction packages and dancing to the sounds of DJ Flip.
Local emergency medical service organizations Greenwich EMS, Harrison EMS, and Port Chester-Rye-Rye Brook EMS were honored at the celebration, where mouthwatering specialties were prepared by over 35 top chefs and beverage distributors.
Norman G. Roth, president at Greenwich Hospital, praised the important work done by the first responders. “These organizations provide important lifesaving, pre-hospital medical care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. This event is about the well-being of the communities we serve, and our EMS teams are shining examples of what it means to positively impact the health of the community,” he said.
On hand to accept the awards were several members of each organization, including GEMS Board Chairman John Raben, Harrison EMS Chief Joe Bilotti, and Port Chester-Rye-Rye Brook EMS Board Chairman Lloyd Miller.
Taste the Towns benefits Community Health at Greenwich Hospital, which provides vital outreach programs and services including free blood pressure screenings, mammograms and prostate exams for the uninsured and underinsured, educational school programs focusing on drug and alcohol prevention, and support groups that help patients and loved ones manage Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, cancer, stroke, chronic pain, diabetes and other conditions. Last year, Community Health touched the lives of nearly 20,000 residents in Fairfield and Westchester counties, accounting for much of the $36 million in community benefits Greenwich Hospital provides annually.
