Splashes of Hope hosted their Halloween Benefit Bash at the historical Coindre Hall.
Coindre Hall is a 40 room, 30,000-square-foot mansion lavishly designed in the style of a medieval French château constructed in 1912 for pharmaceutical magnate George McKesson Brown. The stately mansion also castle overlooks 34 acres of beautifully landscaped land including a boathouse on the north shore of Long Island adjacent to Long Island Sound. Brown lost ownership of the property after the stock market crash of 1929. At the request of Bishop Monsignor Thomas Molly, the Brothers of the Sacred Heart bought this property to establish a boarding school and summer retreat.
Since 1973 Coindre Hall Park has been administered by the Suffolk County Department of Parks. On September 26th, 1985 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and dedicated to the Suffolk County Historic Trust. It is often used for hosting upscale catered events.
Splashes of Hope was founded in 1996 by Artist Heather Buggée as a reaction to her own life experiences in standard medical settings. During her tenure at art school Heather spent a great deal of time with a close acquaintance suffering from Hodgkin's in a local hospital.
Splashes of Hope's mission is to work with volunteer artists to bring murals to as many facilities as possible. Additionally, they have an Executive Board and Advisory Board of dedicated business leaders and professionals. It has been through the firm support of dedicated members that Splashes of Hope has been able to flourish and grow into an international organization, receiving mural requests from facilities throughout the United States and the world.
