WPCNR ROUND WESTCHESTER. From Cerebral Palsy of Westchester. October 3, 2016:
C.P.W. held its 67th Annual Pioneer Dinner at The Surf Club in New Rochelle last Thursday evening.
This year CPW honored Helen Hyatt and the New York State Building Officials – Westchester Chapter. The night
was filled with dancing, laughter and taking time to recognize individuals who have helped our organization grow in
so many ways.
The Martie Osterer Award is given each year to a Pioneer Club member who has made strides to live life to the
fullest. This year’s recipient is Helen Hyatt. Helen lived with her adoptive family until 2010. She then moved to
The King Street IRA, in Rye Brook.

Helen is an active member of The Pioneer Club and enjoys all activities. She brightens any party; with her friendly personality. Helen has had difficulties in the past, but she has overcome obstacles. Her willingness to improve and grow makes her a perfect candidate for this honor.

The Friendship Award is presented annually to an individual or a group of individuals who have given of their time
and energy to help others.

This year’s recipients are The New York State Building Officials Conference –

Westchester Chapter (NYSBOC). 

The NYSBOC – Westchester Chapter have been a tremendous supporter of CPW over the past four years. Since 2012, the members have donated holiday gifts which Santa delivers to each student in our school program. After continued support in our Taste of Westchester event and holiday gifts for our school children, Cerebral Palsy of Westchester recognized the generous support of NYSBOC at the 9th Annual Caring Friends Breakfast in 2014.

In 2014, the Westchester Chapter chose CPW as their charity of choice and hosted the 1st annual golf outing in which the proceeds went towards renovating our gym floor.

Last year’s golf outing proceeds went towards our new sensory room located at our main campus. Our Boy Scout Troop has also been included in the golf outings as well as the Westchester Chapter’s Annual Conference by opening with “The Pledge of Allegiance.” 

After another successful golf outing held this year, the proceeds will go towards building a harmony park, a sensory garden and playground for our individuals to enjoy. Cerebral Palsy of Westchester has been very fortunate to have The New York State Building Officials Conference – Westchester Chapter give of their time and energy to help others with disabilities. We are honored to present them with the 2016 Friendship award and call them friends.
