A Midwinter Evening of Art, Wine & Jazz to Benefit IAHD

The winter for most of us is a time to hibernate, hunker down until spring arrives. Winter can be a season full of beauty and contrasts. On Wednesday February 8, the day before the NY metro area got slammed with a snowstorm, the moon was nearly full and the temperature was a balmy 50 degrees Fahrenheit. The Briarcliff Manor that evening, was turned into an art gallery featuring local artists and artisans alongside artwork created by our IAHD Day program participants -- paintings, jewelry and ceramics. As this was the week before Valentine's Day the artists, artisans, musicians and venue pulled out all the stops to create a memorable evening to benefit IAHD.
