Bedford Community Theater is putting on its Second Annual Community Cabaret Fundraiser on Saturday, June 8 at 7pm at the Bedford Hills   Community House located at 74 Main Street, Bedford Hills.

Last year, the cabaret featured performers of all ages, doing a  variety of acts to raise funds for BCT programs, like the larger scale  
productions they do each year.

This year, Anne Cavaliere will be Directing.  At BCT, aside from her   performance of 'This is Me' in last year's Community Cabaret, she most  
recently brought the role of Martha to life in The Secret Garden.

Bedford Community Theatre is a volunteer organization operating under the auspices of the Town of Bedford dedicated to the production of  
live theatre.  However, some of the funding needs to be sought from outside sources.

BCT's goal is to be a significant cultural asset, engaging the community in the production of affordable theatrical experiences for all ages, fostering a love and understanding of all aspects of theatre arts while showcasing and developing local talent.

The Community Cabaret is Saturday, June 8 at 7pm at the Bedford Hills Community House 74 Main Street, Bedford Hills. Tickets are $20/person and are available online HERE and at the door.

Purchase online for best seats! The Community Cabaret will also have BCT's famous brownies, a 50-50 raffle, a silent auction thanks to  
our generous local businesses and most importantly, community. Please LIKE our FB page for updates, audition calls and more: Bedford

Looking Glass Animal Rescue Participates in Relay for Life for Co-Founder's Son Diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma https://news.hamlethub.com/katonah/neighbors/5097-looking-glass-animal-rescue-participates-in-relay-for-life-for-co-founder-s-son-diagnosed-with-hodgkin-s-lymphoma5097-looking-glass-animal-rescue-participates-in-relay-for-life-for-co-founder-s-son-diagnosed-with-hodgkin-s-lymphoma https://news.hamlethub.com/katonah/neighbors/5097-looking-glass-animal-rescue-participates-in-relay-for-life-for-co-founder-s-son-diagnosed-with-hodgkin-s-lymphoma5097-looking-glass-animal-rescue-participates-in-relay-for-life-for-co-founder-s-son-diagnosed-with-hodgkin-s-lymphoma

Looking Glass Animal Rescue is participating in Katonah-Lewisboro’s Relay For Life event for Co-Founder Jody Harris-Stern’s 10 year old son Bennett who was diagnosed with stage 3 Nodular Lymphocyte-Predomanant Hodgkin Lymphoma in March. Their team is a designated #GoldTogether Team, which means that 100% of the fundraising is designated to childhood cancer research and services.

Daniela Raciti, Director of Marketing and Operations, created the Relay For Life team - aptly named Bennett's Rescuers” - after meeting the Katonah-Lewisboro chapter’s volunteer Marisa at Serene Escape Spa in Ridgefield, CT last month. Both Marisa and Daniela were hosting events for cancer in the Spa on the same day; After Marisa’s Zumba event for the American Cancer Society, Daniela held a card making workshop for families to create cards to send to Bennett. Word about the cards spread fast and over 100 of them from multiple states were forwarded to Bennett, who is currently undergoing chemo. Immensely inspired and literally in tears from the outpouring of love, Daniela created the Relay For Life team with guidance from Marisa and asked if she, Jody, and her husband, Jarrett, could all make speeches.

“Our pack is fundraising and walking this year to show love and support for 10 year old Bennett who began an aggressive, and unforgiving, form of chemotherapy on April 30th. We don't want Bennett thinking he has to go through this fight alone - he has a large family behind him who are praying for him and thinking of him,” said Daniela, who is Team Captain of “Bennett’s Rescuers”.

When Jody learned of the Relay For Life team made in honor of her son, she took to Facebook to express her thoughts: “The amount of love and support has been overwhelming. I am in awe of how many people are behind Team Bennett and beyond appreciative. Thank you from all of us in the Stern house. You all make this difficult time a little easier.”

The Katonah-Lewisboro Relay For Life event will take place on Friday, June 14th from 5pm to 12am at John Jay High School in Cross River, NY. It is a family oriented evening of music, activities, food, entertainment, and fun that is open to all, whether you’ve been touched by cancer or are facing a cancer diagnosis. Nobody should feel alone.

There will also be raffles, silent auction items, a 50/50, and LGAR swag available for purchase. A portion of the donations raised will be donated to Relay For Life team “Bennett’s Rescuers”.

PCSB Bank employees once again recently showed their unwavering support during the 2019 Heart Walk—raising nearly $54,000 for the American Heart Association (AHA). During the past 16 years, PCSB Bank has raised an impressive grand total of more than $693,000 for the AHA’s battle against heart disease.

The PCSB Bank team had 432 employees, families and friends participating in this year’s walkathon. The event raised funds for the AHA’s critical research and awareness programs that help fight heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States.

“Our participation in this event each year provides an inspiring opportunity for PCSB Bank employees, along with friends and families, to rally around a cause that means a great deal to us—as so many in our community are impacted by heart disease,” said Joseph D. Roberto, chairman, president and CEO of PCSB Bank. “I am very proud of our bank’s outstanding team spirit and enthusiastic support for this crucial cause. We truly look forward to this event each year.”

The Heart Walk raises funds for the American Heart Association, which teams with millions of volunteers to fund innovative research, fight for stronger public health policies, and provide lifesaving tools and information to prevent and treat heart disease and stroke.

Area students interested in learning how to build and program robots will now have an opportunity this summer to explore the exciting world of robotics in a new, one-week camp to be offered at The Harvey School on its Katonah campus in July.

Under the direction of Harvey’s robotics director, Chris Kelly, boys and girls entering grades eight through 10, will learn to build, code, and operate a robot utilizing the components of VEX EDR V4, the same system used by many of the best high school and college competition robotics teams. Mr. Kelly, the founder and director of Harvey’s highly touted robotics program, has guided his high school team to a number of first and second-place finishes in interscholastic state, national, and world competitions. In 2016, The Harvey School’s RoboCavs were the CREATE U.S. Open National Champions.

Mr. Kelly, a Katonah resident and a math and science teacher at Harvey for 26 years, describes the program as featuring a VEX Squarebot incorporating various sensors the campers will code to interact with objects on Harvey’s own 12’x12’ VEX competition arena. The sensors include SONARS, bumpers, limit switches, shaft encoders, and more. Students will learn the basics of programming using the ROBOTC platform and will have their own programming computer for the week.

“We’re excited to add the robotics camp to our summer program,” said Vinny Alexander, the director of the Harvey Cavalier Camp. “It will encourage creativity and problem-solving in a fun and friendly environment with an experienced robotics teacher and a counselor who currently competes nationally on Harvey’s robotics team, the RoboCavs,” Mr. Alexander said.

The robotics camp will be offered July 15-19 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The $500 fee includes lunch. Space is limited. Those interested in securing a spot should register at https://harveycavaliercamp.campmanagement.com/enroll

It is Ridgefield Academy’s commitment to helping every Grade 8 student find the right secondary school as the next step in his or her educational journey. When students enter Grade 6, the process begins with the Head of School and Head of the Upper School leading each family through a sequence of steps to plan, investigate and consider a range of high school options.

To further this process, RA hosts one of the most comprehensive Secondary School Placement events in Fairfield County, offers trips to boarding and day schools to interested students and, once in eighth grade, holds weekly meetings with the Head of the Upper School to ensure a seamless and guided process for success. That is RA’s commitment to every student.

This fall, RA students will attend a wide range of fine secondary schools and were admitted to an even broader range of schools, from which they had the luxury of choosing. It is with great pleasure that we announce where the Class of 2019 will be heading in September.

HamletHub wishes all of the moms a very Happy Mother's Day! https://news.hamlethub.com/katonah/neighbors/5085-hamlethub-wishes-all-of-the-moms-a-very-happy-mother-s-day5085-hamlethub-wishes-all-of-the-moms-a-very-happy-mother-s-day https://news.hamlethub.com/katonah/neighbors/5085-hamlethub-wishes-all-of-the-moms-a-very-happy-mother-s-day5085-hamlethub-wishes-all-of-the-moms-a-very-happy-mother-s-day

All of us at HamletHub want to wish mothers and mothers-to-be a wonderful, a joy-filled day celebrating with friends and family!  As Abraham Lincoln once said, "All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother," and we concur.  Thank you to all mothers for your immense love, dedication and hard-work, we could not make it without you!

Here is a little Mother's Day history lesson to share with your family today:  In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson issued a presidential proclamation establishing the first national Mother's Day to celebrate mothers, but it was not until Wilson lobbied Congress, that same year, that Mother's Day was officially set on the second Sunday of every May.
