Rhinelander Children’s Center Hosts “Garden of Lights” Event
On April 24, the Rhinelander Children’s Center will hold its annual “Garden of Lights” fundraiser at the beautiful Battery Gardens in downtown Manhattan. Rhinelander, a premier Upper East Side resource offering arts, education and recreational programs, will celebrate with a buffet and cocktails, as well as an auction and a raffle. Proceeds from the evening will benefit Rhinelander’s Saturday Program for deaf and hard-of-hearing youth–New York City’s only free weekend program of its kind–and our scholarship fund for low-income families.
This year, Garden of Lights will recognize Rhinelander’s Alicen Harrad, After-School Director, and Ellen Santoro, Early Childhood Program Director. Together, they have dedicated over 40 years to nurturing thousands of children through superb educational and arts programming.
