Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2015 Gilda’s Club Westchester Tennis Classic and Wellness Symposium on Monday, July 27 at Fenway Golf Club. Because of your participation the event was a tremendous success – raising over $8,000! This year, 30 women took time out of their busy schedules to join us for a day focused on camaraderie, fun and wellness. The morning began with a friendly round robin competition; afterward the women enjoyed a luncheon, which featured a shopping boutique and discussion on “Mindfulness: Living in the Moment to Embrace Wellness”
During the luncheon, Co-chair Dr. Julie Monroe reminded everyone that Gilda’s Club Westchester provides an essential compliment to medical care through relevant workshops and seminars for members – specifically Mindfulness, and how she has seen first-hand how people benefit immensely from these new strategies.
Gilda’s Club Westchester member Mary Roddy spoke about how her participation in the mindfulness series at Gilda’s has helped her navigate through her tough times. And our very own Stacy Weissberg, Director of Clinical Programs at Gilda’s led our guests in a mindfulness session, which guided them through a series of breathing and imagery exercises, leaving them relaxed and centered after a tough morning on the courts.
A special thank you to everyone involved in making this day so wonderful from start to finish: Event co-chairs Julie Monroe and Ellen Litt; member speaker Mary Roddy, Director of Clinical Programs, Stacy Weissberg; The Chintz Giraffe and Stacey Weiss for donating a percentage of proceeds; photographer Lisa Shpilberg, The Container Store for providing such wonderful gifts for all of our attendees, and the entire tennis committee including: Judy Cooperman, Aileen Landes, Martha Lee Mellis, Cindy Musoff, Laura Preskin, Stacey Remnitz, Henie Simon, Gerri Sommers, Linda Sommers, Wendi Black Strier, and Liz Stuntz.
