Special Events & Programs

Pioneering Rehabilitation


This year, there are no tickets, no journals, and no tables. Traditionally, Burke hosts a reception in honor of the recipients of the Burke Award, which is given to individuals who have made significant contributions to the field of rehabilitation. This year, in lieu of the Burke Award, we are hosting a Stay-at-Home gala. 

2016 Burke Award
Stay-At-Home Gala  

Honoring our Programs

Amputee & Orthopaedic
Cardiopulmonary
Stroke & Traumatic Brain Injury
Spinal Cord Injury & Neuro 


Instead of coming to a gala, we will be honoring our primary Burke programs through a traveling exhibit, Faces of Burke. Faces of Burke is a project that will showcase several amazing patient recoveries through compelling photographs. Following the launch of the gallery in November 2016, it will then travel to various locations throughout Westchester County.

We are offering exposure for your company through the sponsorship of Faces of Burke. Your company’s name can be listed prominently on the display, offering a unique opportunity to receive high visibility throughout the County. Best of all: 100% of your donation goes directly to the programs that are changing patients’ lives every day.

Burke Award

The Burke Award is conferred upon an individual or group who has made significant contributions to the field of rehabilitation, either through personal achievements, the development of research or the establishment of programs and facilities to assist individuals with disabilities. It recognizes strength and courage in overcoming the challenge of a disability or a significant contribution to the understanding of physical disability. It remains the highest honor bestowed by the Board of Directors of the Burke Rehabilitation Hospital and the Burke Medical Research Institute.
