East End Hospice has announced that the Reverend Dr. Charles Cary, the spiritual leader of the Westhampton Presbyterian Church on Quiogue, will be the recipient of its 14th annual Good Samaritan Award later this month.
The award is presented every year to acknowledge exceptional dedication to humanitarian causes in the community. According to a press release issued by the East End Hospice, Rev. Cary has served the community as a pastor and by donating his time and talents to numerous local charitable and volunteer organizations. Those organizations include the Long Island Interfaith Council, Habitat for Humanity and the Southampton Town Anti-Bias Task Force. He also chairs the first capital campaign in support of the Long Island Council of Churches.
The award will be presented at “An Enchanted Evening,” hospice’s annual summer benefit, that will held on Saturday, June 29, from 7 to 11 p.m., at the Sandacres estate in Quogue. The event will be emceed by Bonnie Grice, the producer, host and broadcaster at 88.3 Peconic Public Broadcasting, and includes dinner, dancing, casino-style gaming and both silent and live auctions.
“The acknowledgment of Rev. Cary’s many contributions to East End Hospice and other community organizations through the Good Samaritan Award is a special and well-deserved cause for celebration,” said event co-chair Georgia Hatch. “We are looking forward to supporting the continued good work of East End Hospice at its new facility on Quiogue.”
Construction is expected to begin later this summer on East End Hospice’s new 8-bed inpatient facility.
