Blue Hill Honored to Support ‘Lifting Up Westchester’

October 28, 2021

Blue Hill Data Services was honored to support and participate in Lifting Up Westchester’s Annual Golf & Wellness Outing on October 12, 2021.

Held at the Scarsdale Golf Club, it was a day of fun and community to lift up children and individuals out of poverty, with golf and an array of wellness activities. In addition to golf, wellness activities included an Aroma Balance Workshop; a Fit Walk for all fitness levels; a Nutrition Workshop, led by Georgette Goldson, Registered Dietitian at Montefiore CMO; Skills for Self-Care and Stress Management, led by Dr. Brenda Boatswain, Montefiore’s To Your Health! Wellbeing Manager, and Stephanie Saklad, LCAT, Montefiore’s To Your Health! Creative Wellness Program Manager; Tennis and Pickleball, including singles and doubles with all levels welcome; and a Yoga Workshop, from Scarsdale Golf Club.

About 1800 individuals are homeless each night in Westchester County – almost two thirds of them are families with children. Lifting Up Westchester (LUW) helps build the reservoir of support necessary for our Westchester neighbors to flourish; repairing well-being when it starts to breakdown, but also constructing a strong foundation to maintain this well-being over time.

For four decades as one of the county’s largest social service nonprofits, LUW has made sure that all of our neighbors in need have critical resources like nutritious food, stable housing, access to healthcare and education, and the strong support systems they need to regain their independence.

Anahaita Kotval, CEO, Lifting Up Westchester, “I can’t help thinking about all the people like you who have been so supportive in helping us lift up our Westchester neighbors…and I am grateful to you for being part of the solution to make our community stronger for everyone through supporting our Hope and Swing Golf & Wellness Outing…this was our most successful Golf Outing yet…every act of your generosity helps us further our mission…thank you for a wonderful day knowing that you’re playing a part in strengthening our community.”

“As a longtime supporter of Lifting Up Westchester and the crucial, impactful work LUW does especially for children experiencing homelessness and hunger, we are grateful we can continue to help make a difference in support of LUW’s mission statement to restore hope and greater self sufficiency with dignity and respect to our Westchester County neighbors in need”. John M. Lalli, COO, Blue Hill Data Services
