The New York Foundation for Eldercare (NYFE) Recognition Dinner, held to honor outstanding advocates for care of seniors on Thursday, October 29, at 6:00 pm at The 3 West Club in New York City, the focus was fundraising for a program that educates seniors on vaccinations against shingles, a painful disease, and provides free vaccinations.

The honorees were Eva-Maria Tausig, Board Member and Treasurer of the New York Foundation for Eldercare; Lorayne C. Fiorillo, a Managing Director at Wells Fargo, where she is the investment manager of the NYFE portfolio; and Ashley A. Romano, a National Director of Patient Experience and Research Development at CareRite Centers, LLC, which operates skilled nursing facilities. Caryn Resnick, Deputy Commissioner of the New York City Department for the Aging, spoke at the event

Dr. Gary J. Kennedy, M.D., Director, Division of Geriatric Psychiatry, Montefiore Medical Center and Albert Einstein College of Medicine, presented the Leo and Julia Forchheimer Lifetime Achievement Award to Eva-Maria Tausig.

Michael Tietz, President of the New York Foundation for Eldercare, presented the Margaret Tietz Leadership Award to Lorayne C. Fiorillo, Managing Director at Wells Fargo, where she is the investment manager of the NYFE portfolio.

Akiva Rudner, Chief Operating Officer of CareRite Centers, LLC presented the NYFE Community Service award to Ashley Romano, a National Director of Patient Experience and Research Development at CareRite Centers.

The event focused on a shingles education and vaccination program for seniors, which NYFE launched at naturally occurring retirement communities in The Bronx, Brooklyn and Harlem, working with the Visiting Nurse Service of New York and the City of New York's Department for the Aging. The two-part program features education sessions to raise awareness of shingles among elderly New Yorkers, followed by vaccination for those who sign up. NYFE's support of this program enables seniors to receive shingles vaccinations free of charge.

Shingles is a viral infection that may affect as many as one in three people and one million people annually in the U.S. It is caused by the chickenpox virus (varicella zoster) and causes a painful rash that may take up to four weeks to clear up. People with weakened immune systems, such as seniors, may suffer even more severe cases.

Funds raised at the NYFE recognition dinner will support the expansion of the shingles program to additional locations in all five boroughs.

"The New York Foundation for Eldercare was delighted to recognize the financial leadership and guidance of Eva-Maria Tausig and Lorayne C. Fiorillo. Their thoughtful investment strategy has enabled NYFE's endowment to grow, making it possible to launch innovative programs such as the shingles initiative, which we now want to expand to reach even more seniors. In addition, we are very excited to recognize Ashley Romano for her innovative approach to attentive care to residents of nursing homes and their family members," said Michael F. Tietz, President of the Foundation.

The event was co-chaired by Gary Kennedy, MD and Marc Benhuri, DMD, and featured an art auction (both live and silent) of works by more than a dozen internationally recognized artists, including Maurice Utrillo, donated by Weinstein Gallery of San Francisco.  

The evening was emceed by Pat Battle, Emmy award-winning co-anchor for NBC-TV's Weekend Today in New York and senior New Jersey correspondent. The event included a musical performance by members of Concerts in Motion, a NYFE grantee, whose ensembles of professional musicians and talented youth perform uplifting live music concerts at no charge for people in nursing homes, hospitals, naturally occurring retirement communities, senior residences, Veterans Administration hospitals and other such venues, and for homebound seniors. Performers included Concerts in Motion's Executive Director Jennifer Finn and Rebecca Blinder, both sopranos, accompanied by pianist Arri Simon. Derek Louie, cellist age 17 and a student at the Professional Children's School, also performed.

More than 150 guests attended the event, which raised more than $100,000, an increase of 25% over the event held in 2014. NYFE will direct the funds raised to the shingles virus education and vaccination program, consistent with its mission to serve the elderly population and Holocaust survivors in the New York metropolitan area, especially those residing in nursing homes or other long-term care institutions, bringing caring and dignity to older New Yorkers since 1966.
