It’s an MVP Gala

Autumn leaves are in the air and so is the annual Gala Dinner Dance hosted by Cobble Hill Health Center.

The not-for-profit care center is honoring the borough’s very own, Lenny Wilkens, a retired NBA Hall of Fame basketball player, coach and MVP (Most Valuable Player) basketball player with it’s Life Time Achievement Award. Other honorees include Guest of Honor John Utendahl, executive vice chairman of Bank of America and Bob Doherty, senior vice president of Bank of America, who will receive the Corporate Partnership Award.

The Center has been serving the Brooklyn community as an innovator in caring for the elderly and disabled at its rehabilitation and skilled nursing facility for over 40 years.

The annual fund-raiser will provide funds for the center’s enrichment program, including the horticulture program, transportation for trips, and additional recourses for the Adopt-a-Grandparent program.
