Ways to Give

Fundraising Events

Special fundraising events are held throughout the year to support the Visiting Nurse Service of New York’s charitable and community benefit programs so that compassionate care can be provided to the most vulnerable and underserved populations who need it most.

Annually, VNSNY hosts two major fundraising events, including the year-end VNSNY Benefit Dinner and a spring Golf Outing.  Both events are successful ways for VNSNY to build awareness of our mission and help generate contributions from philanthropic organizations and individuals.

The Visiting Nurse Service of New York (VNSNY) 2016 Benefit Dinner, “Together, We Can Make a Difference,” was held on Thursday, November 10, at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. The event raised $900,000 for VNSNY Children & Family Services programs. WABC- TV Meteorologist Amy Freeze served as the evening’s master of ceremonies.

The evening featured the presentation of the Lillian D. Wald Award to VNSNY Emeritus Board Member Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen (known to most as “Nonnie”), and to VNSNY Board Member Corinne H. Rieder, EdD (known to most as “Cory”). Dr. Rieder’s award was accepted on her behalf by her colleague, Dr. Amy Berman. The award, named after the founder of the Visiting Nurse Service of New York, is presented annually to those who have made significant contributions to the health and welfare of others.

Ms. Frelinghuysen, who has served on the VNSNY Board of Directors for 28 years, is the Anthony W. and Lulu C. Wang Curator of American Decorative Arts at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Dr. Rieder, a VNSNY Board Member for 11 years, is the former President of The John A. Hartford Foundation. The event, which has been held at the Waldorf Astoria for years, will now look to another venue for 2017 as the Waldorf is closing for at least three years of renovations.
