Twigs members Diane Alfieri (L) and Lita Reilly (R), displaying two of the pieces exhibited, co-chaired the Annual
Shirley Weber Art Show and
Sale, and coordinated the
he 41st Annual Shirley Weber Memorial Art Show and Sale to benefit Winthrop�s Chaplaincy Endowment Fund was launched with an elegant preview Cocktail Party by the Hospital Auxiliary and the Twigs division, its fund-raising and special events arm. The upscale event took place in the Winthrop Conference Center on the terrace level of The New Life Center. Twigs members Lita Reilly and Diane Alfieri were Co-chairwomen.
While socializing and feasting at the lavish buffet and full bar, guests viewed and purchased artwork prior to the Show�s opening to the public. Party-goers dined on a cornucopia of hors d�oeuvres, shrimp tree, and a wide variety of savory dishes at the pasta and carving stations, crowned with a gourmet coffee bar and Viennese dessert table. A jazz duo complemented the artistic ambience with mellow to lively musical arrangements.
Among the many glamorous gifts which were raffled were an overnight stay at the New York Palace Hotel; a day at the Greenhouse Spa in Manhasset; and a plentitude of beautiful themed gift baskets, including coffee, gourmet chocolate, and health baskets.
Original paintings in oil, acrylic, watercolor, and pastels, all created by local artists, were exhibited, encompassing every genre. The exhibit was open to the public on March 31 with free admission.
Proceeds from the event were donated to the Hospital�s Chaplaincy Endowment Fund. The fund underwrites the Hospital�s Department of Pastoral Care and Education, which provides spiritual guidance to patients and families and offers healthcare chaplaincy education programs.
