Winter Gala

Ellis Medicine Winter Gala

Thank You!

The 14th Annual Winter Gala for Ellis Medicine, held on Saturday February 4, 2017 at the Glen Sanders Mansion in Scotia, was a huge success. 

More than 360 friends, colleagues and supporters of Ellis Medicine attended the black tie event, featuring an evening of fine dining and dancing.  Funds raised supported Ellis’ Orthopedic Surgery Programs, to bring state-of-the-art orthopedic care to our region and help patients return to normal activities as soon and as safe as possible.The elegant evening honored orthopedic surgeon, Richard D’Ascoli, M.D., and his wife Karen.

Dr. Richard D’Ascoli has been a leading orthopaedic surgeon in our community for more than 30 years.  As an early leader of MVP, he helped organize and provide physician led insurance for our region. Karen has left her mark on Schenectady as an active volunteer leader in Girl Scouts, the Junior League and the Schenectady Day Nursery.
