Honoring our Healthcare Heroes

We are excited to honor the Hospital's healthcare heroes at this year’s White Plains Hospital/Mariano Rivera Classic. Our doctors, nurses and team members from every department have exhibited unbelievable strength throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and personify our mission to be exceptional, everyday - even in the most difficult of circumstances.

We hope that you will let this amazing group of people know how much their sacrifice means to the community by supporting this special event.

The Location

Quaker Ridge Golf Club is a premier club in Scarsdale, NY and is one of America's greatest golf courses. It has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the U.S. Department of the Interior and has a long history of hosting significant events, including the 1936 Met Open won by Bryon Nelson. It has also hosted the Metropolitan Golf Association's (MGA) other two major championships – the Met Amateur and the Ike – and annually hosts its Hochster Memorial. On the national stage, it stands as one of just three U.S. venues to have hosted both the Walker Cup (1997) and Curtis Cup (2018).

Quaker Ridge Golf Club recently completed a club-wide renovation of its clubhouse and pro shop, adding a fitness center, golf simulation and an expanded dining room and patio. We are thrilled to be partnering with Quaker Ridge again on this year's event.

If you weren't able to be there, you missed a wonderful event and inspiring presentation by keynote speaker and co-host of Today with Hoda and Jenna, Jenna Bush Hager. Jenna spoke about the values instilled upon her that prioritized honesty, compassion and kindness above all else.

In addition to Jenna's engaging storytelling, longtime Friends and Board of Directors member Ann Edwards received the first annual Ripple Award for her 50+ years of service to White Plains Hospital, and four local high school seniors were recognized for their volunteerism at the hospital.

The day inspired all of us with powerful examples of connection, compassion and the importance of taking an active role in our communities.
