The Cater Burden Center For The Aging's 31st Annual Awards Ceremony & Dance Party

On November 29, 2010, 300 supporters and friends of The Carter Burden Center for the Aging gathered at Guastavino’s on Manhattan’s Upper East Side for the 31st Annual Awards Ceremony & Dance Party, Change The Face of Aging: A Celebration of the Arts.

The evening supported The Carter Burden Center’s continuous efforts to help older people to live independently, safely and with dignity. Mary Connelly, outgoing Chairman of The Carter Burden Center for the Aging’s Board, was honored with The Carter Burden Humanitarian Award for her continued dedication to the organization.

“It is a great honor to receive The Carter Burden Humanitarian Award,” said Mary Connelly. “Through my time on the Board, I have had the opportunity to help grow an agency that has a dedicated Board and hardworking staff that is led by an excellent Executive Director, William Dionne. I want to thank them for all of their support.”

The benefit evening began with a cocktail reception, followed by dinner, awards ceremony and live auction. Guests enjoyed dancing to DJ Mamy Rock, the 69-year-old English deejay who is the latest sensation of the European club scene. In her first New York City appearance, Ruth Flowers (aka Mamy Rock) chose to play at a charity event. In addition, George McNeely, Senior Vice President of Business Development at Christie’s, conducted a live auction of art by senior artists Jonathan Bauch, Sara Petitt, Arnold Wechsler and Sally Weiss. Margaret Smith, Susan Burden and Sally Bott were the Gala Co-Chairs.
