The Pelham Chapter of the Friends of Sound Shore Medical Center (SSMC) invites the public to celebrate the 17th Anniversary of Accents on Antiques (Accents). The event is scheduled for Thursday, April 19 from 6:00 – 8:00 PM at the shop, located at 125 Wolfs Lane in Pelham.
In addition to a live auction and special dealer discounts, the event will feature a check presentation that represents proceeds from last year’s operation of Accents. President and CEO of Sound Shore Medical Center, John R. Spicer, and the Director of Emergency Medicine, Joseph Ponticello, MD, will accept the check on behalf of the Department of Emergency Medicine. As a New York Designated Area Trauma Center as well as Stroke Center, the donation will benefit this vital community resource that records more than 37,000 emergency visits annually.
Opened in 1995, this upscale shop operates for the exclusive benefit of SSMC. The net proceeds from the sale of donated, consigned and dealer merchandise have enhanced many of Sound Shore Medical Center’s services, including their New York State designated Level 3 Neonatal Nursery, Solomon Katz Breast Center, Gladys and Murray Goldstein Cancer Center and Helen and Michael Schaffer Extended Care Center and most recently the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
Staffed by 60 dedicated volunteers, this 4,800 square foot retail space houses estate furniture, china, crystal, silver, and jewelry as well as an array of decorative accessories and collectibles. First time and repeat customers, alike, enjoy the breadth of merchandise from the 13 dealers that includes country antiques to mid century modern and everything in between. There truly is something for everyone at Accents!!
