Recognized for volunteer work
The Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley will honor a Cold Spring couple, Seamus Carroll and Marie Wieck, at its 23rd annual garden party to be held at Obercreek in Wappingers Falls on Sept. 24.
Wieck, who has worked at IBM for 30 years, volunteers in mentorship programs that promote diversity in technology leadership. She is also a member of the boards of Charity Navigator and the Anita Borg Institute and is co-chair of the National Association of Female Executives Roundtable.
Carroll has spent his career designing and manufacturing electronic imaging systems and co-founded Visiplex Instruments, a manufacturer of medical imaging devices. He serves as a volunteer board member for Guiding Eyes for the Blind, the Hudson Highlands Land Trust and Hudson Valley Seed.
The proceeds from the event fund the organization’s Community Grants program for causes in Dutchess, Putnam and Ulster counties. Tickets can be purchased at communityfoundationshv.org or by calling 845-452-3077.
