Saratoga Hospital Foundation Ornaments

2018 Ornament Moon Lake

Introducing the 2019 Saratoga Hospital Collector's Ornament
"Celebrating Mrs. Marylou Whitney"

We honor Mrs. Marylou Whitney with this year’s ornament to highlight the depth and breadth of how she touched our community. From the instrumental roles she played in the inception of the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, National Museum of Dance, Saratoga Backstretch Appreciation Program, and Centennial Park (now renamed Marylou Whitney Park) to her philanthropy supporting our Hospital and so many other community charitable causes, she became a beloved citizen of Saratoga Springs. With her love and revitalization of racing, the Saratoga Race Track, and the National Museum of Racing, it seemed natural to name the clubhouse entrance to the racecourse (depicted here) in her honor. Also at the entrance will be two jockey statues in Whitney Stable colors in recognition of her famous colt, Birdstone, and his two wins at the Belmont and Travers stakes races in 2004. They will welcome racing devotees for years to come. Her life and the incredible way she lived with grace and generosity leaves an enduring legacy for all. Mrs. Whitney’s dedication to our city led to her nickname the “Queen of Saratoga,” though it could have easily been the ‘Heart’ or ‘Soul’ of Saratoga. With her passing, our lives will never be the same.

The twenty-fourth in a collectible series, the 2019 holiday ornament was created from artwork by Joseph Bell, M.D., a member of the Saratoga Hospital Medical Group and well-known community surgeon.

Ornaments are 24k gold on brass and each year's design captures the spirit of Saratoga through the depiction of a historic place, building, statue, or iconic area or pastime. Proceeds support the Cancer Patient Fund of Saratoga Hospital. To learn more about the fund, click here

Cost of the 2019 ornament is $20 each.  (Due to a production cost increase, for the first time ever, we have found it necessary to adjust the purchase price.) Cost of prior year ornaments remains $15 each. Limited quantities of past ornaments are available and the entire collection of 24 ornaments may be ordered for $250!
