Out & About (Apr 2012)

Westchester Children’s Museum Green Initiatives

Westchester Children’s Museum (WCM) helped bring young imaginations to life with the help of recyclable materials that also promoted green initiatives at “Come In and Play.” Co-sponsored by Pop-Up Adventure Play, an international non-profit organization, families were encouraged to use environmentally-friendly materials for various art activities while members of WCM’s Education Committee served as “Playworkers.” The event was hosted by the Ethical Culture Society of Westchester. For more information about WCM and its programs see www.discoverWCM.org.

Girls Night Out

It was a “wildly outrageous, extremely hilarious, hysterically funny” evening at the Heart to Heart Girls Night Out event that benefited Westchester Heart & Vascular. Comedienne Cory Kahaney entertained the crowd that gathered at the Doubletree Hotel in Tarrytown. Besides a good laugh the crowd also enjoyed cocktails, dinner and an auction.
