This year we are proud to honor:

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 share an elegant evening overlooking the Hudson River as we honor the Ruge and Veith Families at the Grandview in Poughkeepsie.   During cocktail hour, guests will enjoy delectable food and drink in the Riverview Cocktail room, while catching up with friends and shopping our auction to benefit the programs of Family Services.   During dinner, we will celebrate our Families of the Year in the beautiful outdoor ballroom.

Virtual guests will not miss out on the evening’s celebration!  Online attendees will join the festivities via Zoom and have the opportunity to see our treasured families accept their awards live and share congratulations with our honorees.  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.
