The fourth annual Jazz in June gala for Wartburg, a leading senior service provider in Westchester, NY, raised nearly $165,000 on June 16, 2016. The event was held at the Surf Club on the Sound in New Rochelle, NY, with over 300 guests and 36 sponsors. This year’s event included special guests B. Smith and Dan Gasby and honorees included The Wartburg Orphans’ Farm School Alumnus and Founder/CEO of The Future Society, Inc., Larry Fair; dedicated partner and service provider, the Alzheimer’s Association Hudson Valley NY Chapter and longtime spiritual partner, St. Peter’s Church in New York City.

Smith was diagnosed in 2012 with early onset Alzheimer’s disease at the age of 62.
