Community Connections: Apples Poker Run

Since 1985 Elaine Apfelbaum has run the popular “Apples” Poker Run, a fundraising event she created to benefit local non-profit organizations and bring people into downtown New City for an afternoon of fun, camaraderie and good deeds. Montefiore Nyack Hospital was honored to be selected as the benefiting charity for the 2022 Apples Poker Run held on Sunday, March 26th.

In honor of March being Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month, the event raised both awareness and funds to directly support The Madlyn Borelli Multiple Sclerosis Center at Montefiore Nyack. Teams came out in droves to support the event like never before, raising a record amount of $18,500.

Thank you Elaine for your generosity and commitment to our community! We are grateful to everyone who took part in this important fundraising effort. Special thanks to all of the teams who participated and restaurants including: D&D’s Restaurant & Pub, La Terrazza, River Court On Main, Sazone Latin Fusion and The Place.
