 On Thursday May 1st, 2014 an extraordinary group of New Yorkers gathered for
CCHP + ECDC Annual Gala, to raise money and awareness on a program offered by the not-for-profit.

The Center for Comprehensive Health Practice (CCHP) is a multi-disciplinary community health center and substance abuse program located in East Harlem New York. The non-profit hosted their 2014 annual gala, which benefitted the Early Childhood Development Center (ECDC). ECDC is a parenting program to help parents in New York, with the first 3 years of the baby’s life. This year’s event raised a total of $182,790 to support the ECDC program.

“This year’s gala focused on honoring those who have contributed to ECDC success. The money raised will be used to provide access to the ECDC program, for those who need it most, but can not afford the tuition.  Tonight was a tremendous success and we are looking forward to a larger event next year”, said Richard Porter,
 Chief Executive Officer of CCHP.

Highlights from this year’s event include:

   WABC-TV Anchors Bill Ritter and Liz Cho served as master of ceremonies’ for the event and the central theme of the event was: “Across The Decades: Celebrating Forty Years Of Building Healthy Families.

    Actor, Comedian and TV personality Chuck Nice, helped to raise $30,870 through Raise the Paddle and the live dinner auction in the room. He also provided entertainment for the evening

This year’s event included a special awards presentation to honor key supporters of the Early Childhood Development Center (ECDC) across its four decades (1974-2014). Awards recipients included:

First Decade: Carol Kekst, Mary Ellen Fahs, Katherine C. Sincerbeaux.

Second Decade: Carol Kenney, Alice Kandell, Natalie Ross.

Third Decade: Harriet McGurk, Brenda Earl, Greg Ostling.

Fourth Decade: Thea Obstler, Marjorie Berkley, Carol Cram.

Becky Thomas, Chairperson of the Gala Committee commented: “Tonight's honorees represent 40 years of contributions to the success of ECDC and we look forward to honoring more individuals in the years to come!”

Guests enjoyed live music, an outdoor cocktail reception and a seated dinner in the Loeb Boathouse with stunning views of The Lake in Central Park. This year’s gala was produced by Bee Season Consulting.


The Center for Comprehensive Health Practice (CCHP) is a multi-disciplinary community health center and substance abuse program located in East Harlem New York.  Accredited by CARF, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities and supported by OASAS, the Office of alcoholism and substance abuse services and the National Health Services Corp, CCHP serves the most vulnerable communities in New York City. CCHP primarily serves East Harlem and the South Bronx but patients come from all five boroughs of New York City.
