Back Row:  Emcee John Roland, honorees Mr. & Mrs. John V. Brennan and Mr. & Mrs. Michael Walsh. Front Row: co-chairs Peggy Dillmeier and Maureen Dinger.  

On June 30, at the Sandacres Estate in Quogue, the annual East End Hospice summer party attracted over 650 guests for an evening of authentic casino gambling, music by The Carolyn Leonhart Group, and cuisine by Starr Boggs. The benefit's Master of Ceremonies was John Roland. Event chairpersons were Maureen Dinger and Peggy Dillmeier.

Mr. and Mrs. John V. Brennan and Mr. and Mrs. Michael Walsh were honored with the 7th Annual Dorothy Pell Savage Award for their overwhelming commitment to East End Hospice and the community.  The Good Samaritan Award was established by the Board in 2000 in memory of Dorothy P. Savage, the esteemed humanitarian and founder of East End Hospice.  The award is presented each year to the individual in the community who demonstrates such humanitarianism.

All proceeds benefit East End Hospice, a New York certified hospice, which provides care for terminally ill patients, their families, and loved ones through an interdisciplinary team of skilled professionals and volunteers.
