The Fifth Annual Journey of Hope Gala

presented by the Brain Injury Association of New York State

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

The Fifth Annual Journey of Hope Gala took place on Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at the Prince George Ballroom in New York City. Honorary Co-Chairs Penny Marshall and Lorraine Bracco, motivated by their own experiences supporting a friend with a brain injury, have generously committed their time and energy to support the Gala and Brain Injury Association of New York State (BIANYS). Tom Llamas, Anchor/Reporter, NBC4 New York, served as the Master of Ceremonies for the evening. The cocktail reception and silent auction began at 6:30 p.m., followed by the awards presentation, live auction and dinner at 7:30 p.m. Honorary Co-Chairs Penny Marshall and Lorraine Bracco conducted the live auction. Music was provided by international sensation Veronica Martell Entertainment.

All proceeds benefit the Association.

This year marked both the 5th anniversary of the Journey of Hope Gala and the Associationís 30th anniversary! The Gala supports the many life-changing programs and services provided by BIANYS, which assists individuals with brain injury and their families and promotes prevention. BIANYS is the premier support and advocacy organization assisting New Yorkers with brain injury and their families. The Journey of Hope Gala is the Associationís major annual fundraising event, raising much needed funds to continue its mission.

Raj K. Narayan, MD, FACS, Professor and Chair of Neurosurgery, Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine and Director of the Cushing Neuroscience Institute received the Champion of Hope Award. Eliette Markhbein, Visual Artist, M.S., M.A., CDAT, Founder, The TBI Portraits Project Ė a partnership with the Brain Injury Association of America and the Society for the Arts Healthcare; Founder, The Therapeutic Arts Program for Neurological Rehabilitation, Mount Sinai Medical Center received the Victory Award. Rosemarie diSalvo and Bradley Van Nostrand were the Gala Chairs.

Every 23 seconds, another person in the United States sustains a brain injury. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that at least 3.2 million Americans are currently living with long term disabilities from a traumatic brain injury. In fact, TBI is the signature injury of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, impacting at least one in five of the military personnel involved in these wars. Since 1982, the Brain Injury Association of New York State has provided vital services that lead to improved outcomes for children and adults with brain injuries and their families. Through outreach, support, advocacy, and education, the Association improves the quality of life for individuals with brain injury and their families. At the same time, because the best cure for brain injury is prevention, educate the public about brain injury prevention. Working with our chapters and support groups, volunteer Board of Directors, members, and staff, we are ready to help solve a problem, make a connection, access a service, or just talk. All of these supports are provided free-of-charge.
