UJA-Federation of New York’s Northern Westchester Women’s Philanthropy held a day of mah jongg and shopping to raise money for its annual campaign and for Sunrise Day Camp, the first and only full-summer day camp for children with cancer and their siblings. Sunrise Day Camp at Pearl River is a program of the Barry and Florence Friedberg JCC and the Rosenthal JCC of Northern Westchester (the event location), both UJA-Federation beneficiary agencies. “I want to thank you for coming to play with us today,” said Tracy Stein of Chappaqua, one of the event chairs. “But, of course, you’re doing more than playing. When you support UJA-Federation, you invest in our community for the biggest impact.”
