The evening was filled with special moments including the Slide show of the construction of the Angel of Hope
it was a great moment when the honorees Pat Cassetta and Angelo Ciotta were presented with a plague thanking them for helping to bring the Angel to long Island. There were great thanks to the members of local 66 and 138. These hard working men went out of there way to make the Angel of Hope a special place for parents to visit that have lost a child.

Our 2009 Angela’s House Gala held on March 26 at the Watermill in Smithtown was a huge success. There were over 200 people who attended this wonderful evening. It was heartwarming to see the tremendous support we received, especially in such a challenged economy. Our guests were impressed with the Watermill’s elegant rooms that they setup for us. The first room our quest went into was for our cocktail hour and Chinese auction. The second room was the Vanderbilt Ball Room which was for our elegant dinner and awards. Read More

Picture yourself in a hospital delivery room, filled with excitement about becoming a parent. In an instant, joy turns to angst as the doctor informs you your child was born with an illness or a disability. You lose touch with friends, become engulfed in hospital treatments and your life is nothing you ever imagined it would be. You’re left with no way of caring for the child you love more than anything in world, both monetarily and physically, because the only treatment centers are out of state. This scenario prompted the founding of Angela’s House, dedicated to improve the quality of life for families and children with a severe disability or medical condition.
