Thank you to everyone who joined us and supported the 6th Annual Mah Jongg Invitational on Monday, June 1st, at Willow Ridge Country Club.
Can you believe it? Six Years!
On Monday, June 1st more than 200 women from all over Westchester participated in the Sixth Annual Gilda’s Club Westchester Mah Jongg Invitational at Willow Ridge Country Club in Harrison, New York. Whether they came to play, learn, have lunch, or shop at our Mah Jongg boutique, everyone enjoyed an afternoon of fun and camaraderie in support of our mission to provide free support to anyone touched by any type of cancer in our community.
This year’s event was a huge success, raising more than $70,000 for Gilda’s Club Westchester. Co-Chairs Wendy Kleinman and Jodi Shapiro created this event to honor their mothers, Sandi Schneider and Joan Blieberg, both of whom passed away from cancer and shared a love for the game of Mah Jongg. Wendy and Jodi spoke at the Invitational and continue to be amazed at how this event continues to grow – drawing new attendees each year.
Gilda’s Club member Michelle Hirsh shared her personal story of finding out she had cancer and the journey she and her family have been on, ever since. Michelle lives each day of her “bump” in the road journey with gratitude, humility and determination. She finds silver linings where she can and continues to “show up, be present, and live”!
