Get Your Sparkle On. Jewelry Event and Fundraiser for Rockland Alliance for Health


On Wednesday, April 30, 2014 from 5pm-9pm Sabra Originals, formerly of New City will be hosting an event with a very specific purpose–to raise funds for Rockland Alliance for Health. The event will take place at their new location in a private home at 15 Rose Hill Road in Suffern, New York.

The Alliance works collaboratively with local agencies to support community health outcomes in Rockland County, one such agency was Camp Venture.

On any given day at the George Strayton Center, also known as Venture Quest on Main Street in Sparkill, developmentally disabled adults have the opportunity to step outside this Camp Venture Day Home. Camp Venture calls it their “Without Walls” Program, where 40-43 intrepid adventurers meet. On their travels they can pick a tomato, some green beans, peppers, lettuce, basil, garlic and onions and go inside and make themselves a healthy lunch. The Camp Venture community garden, which was built around 2008, is a recipient of a 2012 grant, through The Rockland Alliance for Health (RAH), who chose to assist in sustaining the work and funding needed to maintain a garden of this nature.

On the evening of the event one can shop for Mother’s Day, receive a mini-massage from local licensed massage therapist Michelle Solomon, enjoy free hors d’oeuvres, a special drink, raffles and watch an artisan make jewelry on the spot.

Sabra’s jewelry ranges in price and include an extensive selection of authentic Israeli art and jewelry, hand crafted and hand chosen.

“I personally select the items and travel to Israel often to discover new Israeli art and artists whose vision and craftsmanship are unparalleled,” Bareket remarked.

Sabra is donating a percentage of sales to the Alliance from 10am-9pm but the full event does not begin until 5pm that evening.

For more information contact The Rockland Alliance for Health at 845-548-4080. If you are attending, please use the second driveway at the home and enter from the garage.
