Hosted by Mary Murphy, WPIX and with acoustic performances by Enda Keegan, Neffy, and Paul Sforza, guests were able to enjoy songs of inspiration, see a rehearsal of Melodic Soul, as well as hear more about our work from Executive Director, Janice Aris, and Board Member, Frank Fellone, III. Virtual attendees even got a virtual mixology lesson from Bobby McKee and a virtual wine tasting from Karin Torres of Corkscrew Wines during our May 5th ZoomaThon.
Thanks to all of you and your tremendous outpouring of support, we were able to raise over $15,000 for Mercy Home's Staff Support Fund. Please watch the video highlighting our work and see Melodic Soul in rehearsal.

A Starry Night Gala
As we collectively face the many challenges posed by the COVID-19 virus outbreak, we wanted to thank you for being part of our community, you are a key part of why we exist. Never doubt that you are appreciated and valued.
As we all stay in place and do our best to flatten the curve, we have decided to postpone "A Starry Night Gala" to October 22, 2020. Our priority is the health and safety of our individuals, our supporters, and our team. We are planning an online event on May 5. Proceeds from our Mercy Day ZoomAthon will benefit Mercy Home and help us offset so many unexpected costs associated with the pandemic. Questions? Email .
