From Jan. 22, 2018, through Feb. 21, 2018, Rosa burglarized multiple homes in Mount Pleasant, Eastchester, New Rochelle and Scarsdale. Williams was involved with Rosa in burglaries in New Rochelle and Mount Pleasant.

Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr. announced Christian Rosa of Valhalla and Damien Williams of White Plains were sentenced June 13 and June 14, 2019, respectively, for a series of burglaries throughout the county in early 2018.

Rosa was sentenced to the following, to which he pleaded guilty: on six counts of Burglary in the Second Degree, class C felonies – 14 years in state prison on each count to run concurrently.

Williams pleaded guilty to two counts of Attempted Burglary in the Second Degree, class D felonies, and will serve two 1-year terms in County Jail to run consecutively.   

A third defendant, Vincent Cuccurullo of White Plains pleaded guilty Sept. 17, 2018, in Westchester County Court to Burglary in the Second Degree for a burglary of a home in Scarsdale which he committed with Rosa. He was sentenced in October to nine years in state prison.

Background
From Jan. 22, 2018, through Feb. 21, 2018, Rosa burglarized multiple homes in Mount Pleasant, Eastchester, New Rochelle and Scarsdale. Williams was involved with Rosa in burglaries in New Rochelle and Mount Pleasant.

The indictment was the result of a joint investigation among the District Attorney’s Office and police departments from Greenburgh, Mount Pleasant, New Rochelle, Scarsdale, City of Rye, Eastchester and White Plains, which worked together to investigate and arrest these defendants. Rosa and Williams committed burglaries of homes throughout Westchester during the day while the homeowners were out of the house. They forced entry into the homes and stole numerous items including jewelry, coins and credit cards.

They were arrested Feb. 21, 2018.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys Laura Murphy, Chief of the Career Criminal Bureau, and Joseph DiBenedetto, Deputy Chief of the Patterned Crime Unit of the Investigations Division Organized Crime and Criminal Enterprise Bureau.

Kick Off Summer at The Ridgefield Playhouse with Jon Batiste and Stay Human on June 21 https://news.hamlethub.com/ryebrook/events/5159-kick-off-summer-at-the-ridgefield-playhouse-with-jon-batiste-and-stay-human-on-june-215159-kick-off-summer-at-the-ridgefield-playhouse-with-jon-batiste-and-stay-human-on-june-21 https://news.hamlethub.com/ryebrook/events/5159-kick-off-summer-at-the-ridgefield-playhouse-with-jon-batiste-and-stay-human-on-june-215159-kick-off-summer-at-the-ridgefield-playhouse-with-jon-batiste-and-stay-human-on-june-21

Premium Show-only tickets JUST RELEASED!

Kick off summer with dinner, open bar and a great night of live music at The Ridgefield Playhouse Summer Gala, featuring “Late Show” band leader Jon Batiste and his band Stay Human on Friday, June 21 – the first day of summer!

The gala, which benefits The Playhouse (a non-profit, 501 (c) (3)), begins at 5:30pm and includes dishes prepared by local restaurants, beverages provided by local brewers, wineries and distilleries and a chance to bid on fabulous silent auction items outside under a tent on the baseball field next to The Playhouse. Jon Batiste and Stay Human will perform in the theater at 8pm.

Batiste is a globally celebrated musician, educator, bandleader and television personality whose musical skill, artistic vision and exuberant charisma make him a triple threat with unlimited potential. Recognized for his originality, jaw-dropping talent and dapper sense of style, he transitions from commanding the piano with virtuosic skill to soulfully crooning to wailing on the “harmonaboard” (a kind of harmonica and keyboard) to curating unique "social music" experiences all over the world. Born into a long lineage of Louisiana musicians, Batiste eventually went on to receive both his undergraduate and masters degrees in piano from the Juilliard School and formed his band, Stay Human. This show is part of the Moffly Media Evening of Art Wine & Jazz Series and Pepsi Rock Series powered by Xfinity. Media sponsor for this show is WFUV.

The Ridgefield Playhouse is grateful for the support of Silver Sponsors: Berisford & Stockel Families, Ann & Steve Carlson, De Clercq Office Group, Adam R. Rose & Peter R. McQuillan and Lisa & Michael Shinall; Restaurant Sponsors: Atria Senior Living Culinary Chefs, Bareburger, The Cake Box, Odeen’s Barbecue, Some Things Fishy Catering, Southwest Café, Tablao, Tequila Escape, The Village Tavern and Whistle Stop Bakery; Beverage Sponsors: Asylum Distillery, Campari, Corona Premier, Founders Brewing Company, Got Attitude Vodka, Half Full Brewery, Nod Hill Brewery, Pacifico Clara, Pera Wines, Reverie Brewing Company, The Wine Trust, and Treasury Wine Estates; Additional Support by Abbey Tent & Party Rentals, Hollandia Nurseries, Pepsi, Reliance Merchant Services & Reli-Bid.

Band leader, Jon Batiste has performed with such artists as Stevie Wonder, Prince, Willie Nelson, Lenny Kravitz, Ed Sheeran, and Mavis Staples. The Louisiana native began as a percussionist in his family’s band The Batiste Brothers Band at the age of eight. He switched to piano at age eleven and in addition to taking classical lessons began transcribing songs from video games such as Streetfighter Alpha and Sonic Hedgehog. He studied with Trombone Shorty at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts and later attended Julliard. He made his debut at The Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam at age 20, producing and performing his own show and went on to conduct music classes and clinics throughout the Netherlands, eventually returning to play Carnegie Hall in New York City.

For Batiste’s latest album Hollywood Africans he worked with the legendary T Bone Burnett. Batiste states, “The goal was just to collaborate on something that felt authentic to both of us. What we came up with was an intimate, stripped-down portrait of who I am, and the lineage of musicians and performers who are really vital to my work and to his. On this record, I want us to bop, dance, laugh and cry to the sound of the music while we remember our black heroes and wield the superpowers they left us with. Because of them, I don't have to wear a mask. I get to be who I am.”

For tickets ($75- $175) call or visit the box office, 203-438-5795 or go online at ridgefieldplayhouse.org. The Ridgefield Playhouse is a non-profit performing arts center located at 80 East Ridge, parallel to Main Street, Ridgefield, CT.

Burke Award Dinner Raises Nearly $150,000 for New Rehabilitation Gym https://news.hamlethub.com/ryebrook/neighbors/5158-burke-award-dinner-raises-nearly-150-000-for-new-rehabilitation-gym5158-burke-award-dinner-raises-nearly-150-000-for-new-rehabilitation-gym https://news.hamlethub.com/ryebrook/neighbors/5158-burke-award-dinner-raises-nearly-150-000-for-new-rehabilitation-gym5158-burke-award-dinner-raises-nearly-150-000-for-new-rehabilitation-gym

More and more patients are coming to Burke Rehabilitation Hospital after experiencing a life-changing neurological condition like stroke, traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury. In light of this shift in patient population, Burke is renovating 5,200 square feet of space within the hospital and creating a state-of-the art gym that will help these patients reach their maximum level of independence.

The annual dinner is Burke’s largest fundraiser, raising more than $500,000 overall for the hospital this year. The award is the highest bestowed by Burke’s Board of Trustees. It is given to individuals or groups who contributed to the field of rehabilitation through personal achievements, research development or by establishing programs and initiatives that improve quality of life for individuals with disabilities.

This year’s Burke Award honorees were:

  • Tom and Bonnie Grace: The Graces have lived their lives devoted to their central guideposts of faith, family and each other. When Bonnie suffered a stroke that left her unable to walk, or even speak, Tom insisted on only the very best for her recovery, and that was Burke. Tom, along with their 4 children and families, brought tireless energy and passion to her recovery. Their experience has made them champions of Burke. Today, Bonnie is back home in Rye playing ping pong, building her strength with boxing classes, and giving back as the family always has over a lifetime of philanthropy.
  • Cuddy & Feder LLP: A Westchester-based law firm that puts a priority on community stewardship and philanthropy, Cuddy & Feder LLP has a rich history of contributing to the community through pro bono work, volunteer activity and financial support. Members of the firm serve on the boards of educational, healthcare, social service and cultural institutions. Partner Anthony Gioffre has served on Burke’s Board of Trustees since 2006. As a prominent firm in the community and Burke supporter, Cuddy & Feder is a leader in supporting the programs and services that patients need to regain their independence.
  • Mary Beth Walsh, MD: Dr. Walsh was Executive Medical Director and CEO of Burke Rehabilitation Hospital for 22 years. When Dr. Walsh was named CEO in 1995, she became the first female CEO of a hospital in Westchester County. A well-known leader in the field, Dr. Walsh is a fellow of the American College of Physicians and the American College of Rheumatology. She is also a member of the Board of Directors for the American Medical Rehabilitation Providers Association. Dr. Walsh retired from her position in April of 2017 after dedicating 37 years of service to Burke – leading up to this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Graces remind us every day of what is possible when high quality rehabilitative medicine is paired with a loving and caring support system,” said Jeffrey Menkes, President and CEO of Burke Rehabilitation Hospital. “Cuddy & Feder show us the importance of good citizenry and giving back to the community.”

“We are also forever indebted to Dr. Walsh,” Menkes concluded. “Her steady-handed leadership and medical expertise have left a mark on Burke that will never be erased.”

Burke would like to thank all the sponsors who helped to make the Burke Award Dinner a success: Diamond Sponsor: Bonnie and Tom Grace; Platinum Sponsor: Country Bank; Gold Sponsors: The Bristal Assisted Living, Cuddy & Feder LLP, Cashie and Tom Egan, Patricia J. Figge, Michael Joyce, Keating Electric & Technologies, Vera and Gregory Kiernan, Montefiore Health System, White Plains Hospital; Silver Sponsor: Kelley Drye & Warren LLP; Bronze Sponsors: Ahearn Holtzman, Inc., Arthur J. Gallagher & Co., Cabrini of Westchester, Celtic General Contractors, Inc., Anne and Wilfred Finnegan, Mary McCooey, Mary El and Tony O'Callaghan, PepsiCo EnAble, Mary and John Power, Simone Development, Lauren and Robert Steers , United Hebrew of New Rochelle, Carrie and Michael Walsh; Patron Sponsors: American Hospital Association, Bleakely Platt & Schmidt, LLP, Patricia Burns, EwingCole, The Grove at Valhalla, Hanger, Inc., Timothy Sant, VNS Westchester.

Area Retailers & Restaurants to Make Waves in Fight Against Cancer with Swim Across America Fairfield County https://news.hamlethub.com/ryebrook/charities/5156-make-waves-day-20195156-make-waves-day-2019 https://news.hamlethub.com/ryebrook/charities/5156-make-waves-day-20195156-make-waves-day-2019

Mark your calendar for the third annual “Make Waves Day” on Thursday, June 20 in Stamford, with area restaurants and retailers. This annual event is a community fundraising initiative with Swim Across America Fairfield County to help raise funds for groundbreaking cancer gene therapy research.

Participating retailers and restaurants will contribute a portion of their sales from June 20 to Swim Across America Fairfield County. Many donate up to 10-to-20 percent, but each participant is free to decide which portion of the day’s sales are donated and can specify hours of the promotion. The funds raised go to directly to Swim Across America Fairfield County and its local beneficiary, Stamford-based Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy (ACGT), the nation’s only nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to funding cancer gene therapy research. To see a complete list of participating retailers and restaurants in the Swim Across America Make Waves Day, visit http://bit.ly/MakeWavesDay2019.

Greenwich businesses will be supported with a banner across Greenwich Avenue from June 10 to 24 to promote the event and the Swim Across America Fairfield County open water swim, taking place on June 22. More than 300 swimmers and 100 volunteers participate in the open water swim and all "make waves” in the fight against cancer!

“We are very excited about this year’s ‘Make Waves Day’ and what it means for the Greenwich community,” said Nancy Carr, co-chair of Swim Across America and the mastermind behind this event. “We created the ‘Make Waves Day’ a few years ago for those of us that don’t swim. I wasn’t a swimmer, but I sadly know too many whose lives have been touched by cancer and I wanted to do something to help raise money to fight this disease. Inviting area retailers and restaurants to participate in this fun day was an easy way to get more involved. The event has grown over the past several years to include retailers and restaurants throughout Greenwich, Stamford, Westport and New Canaan.”

“It’s exciting to see the enthusiasm and participation for what we are doing grow,” said Michele Graham, the swim’s other co-chair and parent of a young adult cancer survivor. “Everyone wants to get involved and the ‘Make Waves Day’ and it is great to see the whole community helping.”

To learn more about the Swim Across America Fairfield County “Make Waves Day,” and help fight cancer, please contact either Debbie Dunster at wsd10@optonline.net or Lindsay Stafford at lws3@sbcglobal.net.

The Bird Homestead and Meeting House Conservancy will screen Intelligent Trees, a documentary film, on Saturday, June 1, at 3 pm at the Meeting House on Milton Road. It features forester Peter Wohlleben, best-selling author of The Hidden Life of Trees, and scientist Suzanne Simard of the University of British Columbia. They have observed and investigated the communication between trees for decades. Their findings are astonishing.

Trees talk, know family ties, and care for their young? Is this too incredible to be true? Their work shows that trees are individual beings that have feelings, know friendship, have a common language, and look after each other. The film explores the various ways that trees communicate. It goes beyond observations and claims. It matches them with

the latest underlying scientific research.

Admission free.

Rye Meeting House, 624 Milton Road, Rye, NY 10580
