Thanks to your incredible generosity we were able to host a fabulous Mother's Day celebration at Belmont Park and also to bless those in Saratoga with beautiful Mother's Day gifts.

This year for the first time we were able to expand our distribution of Mother's Day gifts at Belmont Park to include a celebration in the Belmont Café that included inspiring speakers, surprise gifts, delicious food, free clothing, and gift baskets. It was a very special night for those we serve and all who attended greatly appreciated being pampered and treated.

Thank you to the National Charity League of Garden City for their assistance at the event and thank you to all of you who so generously donated and made this possible, including the incredible partners of West Point Thoroughbreds.

We are blessed to partner with you and grateful for the special place you hold in your hearts for the individuals and their families who make Thoroughbred racing possible behind the scenes.
NY Chaplaincy Treasurer Dottie Bagnato Honored
Our long-time dedicated Treasurer, volunteer, and God-send to the Chaplaincy Dottie Bagnato was honored by The Rollstone Foundation at their Annual Gala on May 18th. The Foundation works to promote the adoption of special needs children around the world, and Dottie is a dedicated supporter and volunteer.

Adoption is close to Dottie's heart as she and her late husband Joe adopted adopted three children, who are now adults, from Ukraine.

Dottie has worked tirelessly behind the scenes in support of the work of the NY Chaplaincy for over 20 years and we are delighted and proud that she has received this very well deserved honor.

Congratulations, Dottie!
