Benefit Gala 2015

Posted by on Aug 17, 2015 in Programs | No Comments

This year, Great Camp Sagamore celebrated its 40th anniversary under the care of the Sagamore Institute. Our Annual Benefit Gala naturally celebrated this milestone. Original co-founders Barbara Glaser and Howie Kirschenbaum were present to reflect on our beginnings and express hope for the future, as were our many devoted board members and quite a few of our enthusiastic members.

One of the highlights of the evening was the showing-off of this well-preserved 1929 Packard automobile: with only the fluids and a belt or two being changed, it still ran!
