SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga Hospital’s 28th annual holiday ornament pays tribute to one of Saratoga’s most notable figures, Marylou Whitney.
Joseph Bell, M.D. designed the gold ornament, which is currently on sale for $25 at the hospital gift shop, Adirondack Trust branches, Impressions of Saratoga, Treasures Boutique, and Crafters Gallery. Proceeds will support the hospital’s Cancer Patient Fund.
In 2019, Whitney was inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame, just two weeks after she passed away at her home in Saratoga. Known as the “social queen of Saratoga,” Whitney was an influential presence in the Spa City, co-founding both the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) and the National Museum of Dance.
