The Women’s Association for Morristown Medical Center (WAMMC) is pleased to announce its 19th Mansion in May Designer Showhouse and Gardens, which was delayed due to COVID-19 and presented as Splendor in September, raised $1 million to benefit the expansion of the Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute at Morristown Medical Center.
Mansion in May is the preeminent designer showhouse in the New Jersey-New York area and is typically attended by up to 25,000 visitors. Splendor in September at Tyvan Hill estate in New Vernon, New Jersey was open to the public with all the appropriate safety measures in place from September 8 through October 4, 2020 and welcomed over 8,000 visitors to tour the estate, including its lovely gardens and award-winning Norman-French styled brick and stone country manor house typical of the large country residences built in New Vernon during the 1920s.
“Over the last 20 years Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute has become a nationally ranked program serving thousands of heart patients each year. This unprecedented growth, which has elevated patient care in our community, has also created pressing challenges,” said Trish O’Keefe, PhD, RN, President, Morristown Medical Center. “Our increasing patient volume has outpaced the capacity to meet demand, and we are extremely grateful to the Women’s Association for their support of our campaign.”
“The success of the Splendor in September Designer Showhouse and Gardens can be attributed to the support of our sponsors, interior and landscape designers and media partners,” added Katie Nolle, President, Women’s Association for Morristown Medical Center. “We are most grateful to our co-chairs, Pat O’Connor and Kathy Ross and the entire Mansion in May Committee for their patience, fortitude, detailed planning and, more importantly, their dedication to deliver on our pledge to raise the much-needed funds to benefit the expansion of the Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute.”
