Family of the Year Awards Dinner on July 29, 2021

This year we are proud to honor:

Don & Jill Veith with The Good Neighbor Award

The Ruge Family with The Lifetime Achievement Award

These two families embody the ideals of Family Services and have contributed immensely to our community. We hope you will join us in honoring them and in helping Family Services continue building communities without limits.

We are excited to offer in person and virtual celebration tickets for this signature event:

In person guests will celebrate our Families of the Year in the beautiful OUTDOOR ballroom at the Grandview. We will share an elegant evening overlooking the Hudson River as we honor the Ruge and Veith Families.  Guests will enjoy delectable food and drink while catching up with friends and shopping our auction to benefit the programs of Family Services.   

Virtual guests will not miss out on any of the evening’s celebration!  Online attendees will join the festivities via Zoom and have the opportunity to see our treasured honorees accept their awards live, share congratulations with our honorees, and even shop an online auction. Virtual guests will receive a signature “to go” celebration box filled with red or white wine, charcuterie, cheeses, and decadent desserts to enjoy during the Family of the Year Virtual Celebration.
