Editor, The Spotlight:
This is a big thank you to local businesses listed below from New Scotland, Bethlehem and Colonie who recently contributed donations for silent auction and gift baskets as part of a fundraiser held June 1 at the Hibernian Hall in Albany. The turnout for the event was fabulous despite fierce thunderstorms and record 90 degree heat.
Funds raised from this event went to assist a nurse with more than 37 years of service to Albany Medical Center Hospital in her recovery after experiencing a sudden onset of paralysis. Nurses are a funny bunch; we give the care and are not the best at accepting help.
Please know that as this nurse, who is now a patient, continues to recover; hopefully she will return to this region, and return to your establishments once again.
I was a member of a committee of people who sponsored this event and was never more proud of being part of such a generous business community.
