Wartburg’s 5th Annual Jazz in June Gala Raises $210,000

Wartburg, an award-winning provider of comprehensive senior residential and healthcare services, hosted their 5th annual Jazz in June, raising over a record $210,000. The event was held at the Surf Club on the Sound in New Rochelle, NY, with nearly 340 guests and 40 sponsors. This year’s event included a special musical performance by four time Grammy-nominated Jazz Guitarist, Stanley Jordan. John Schaefer from NPR’s Soundcheck was the emcee for the evening’s program.

The funds raised at this year’s gala will help Wartburg purchase an indoor Smart Car for their Rehabilitation Center. Along with our Next Step Home Apartment, where rehabilitation patients use activities of daily living such as getting in and out of bed and loading and emptying a dishwasher to ensure a safe return home, the Smart Car allows patients the opportunity to comfortably readapt to transferring in and out of a motor vehicle, a necessity for achieving independence. In addition, gifts received that evening help to support Wartburg’s internationally recognized, award-winning Creative Aging & Lifelong Learning initiative by hiring a Creative Arts Therapist who will provide classes that offer our residents stimulating arts-based programs such as dance and music therapy.
