Driving rain and an early start time did not deter 600 people who arrived at Crest Hollow Country Club recently to celebrate the Women’s Fund of Long Island’s 20th year and to honor four exceptional women.
The breakfast started with a meet and greet and a chance to showcase Women’s Fund contest winner Patti Hogarty, designer of “Women as Bamboo.” Inspired by her neighbor’s bamboo, she entered the contest drawing a design of the bamboo, which Ambalu Jewelers of Roslyn then turned into various pendants of which 40 percent of the profits would go to WFLI. Hogarty wrote a short essay comparing women to bamboo in that they are strong and can weather difficult storms, yet remain graceful and continue to grow sending out new shoots.

The story, Jimmy’s Gift, centers around a boy whose generosity and selflessness put him in danger on a brutally cold and snowy day. Malone says it is based on a true story after reading a blurb in Reader’s Digest a few years ago about a 12-year-old boy who walked through the snow to help deliver food baskets to those in need; and it turned out that his family’s name was also on the list of those in need of help in the community.
