POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- United Way of Dutchess County-Orange Regon will hold the annual Celebration of Service: A CommUNITY United Awards benefit dinner on April 6.
United Way will celebrate the conclusion of its 2015 Campaign for the Common Good by honoring key volunteers, donors, community partners and sponsors. Dr. Daniel Aronzon will receive the Distinguished Leadership award.
“Dr. Daniel Aronzon has been a leader in healthcare his entire life,” said Barry Rothfeld, Chairman of United Way’s Board of Directors. “Danny makes a real difference in people’s lives, both professionally and through his innumerable volunteer activities in our community. He served on United Way’s Board of Directors, but that’s just one reason out of many that we’ve chosen to honor him with the Distinguished Leadership Award.”
Dr. Aronzon, a Hudson Valley pediatrician, is the second recipient of United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region's Distinguished Leadership Award. He is a founding partner of The Children’s Medical Group, and former President and CEO of Vassar Brothers Medical Center Dr.
“The Celebration of Service is our way of recognizing and thanking the thousands of area residents who make charitable gifts to the United Way individually and through their workplace campaigns during the Campaign for the Common Good,” said Jeannie Montano, President & CEO of United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region. “United Way could not accomplish its mission to build a stronger and healthier community without the support of these many dedicated volunteers, businesses and nonprofits. It is an honor to celebrate those who go above and beyond the call of duty in service to our community.”
The benefit will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a cocktail reception, silent auction and nonprofit showcase. Dinner and the awards ceremony will follow at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $125 per person and available online at www.uwdor.org/celebration2016.
The event takes place at Anthony's Pier 9 in New Windsor.
