2020 Annual Garden Party  of Hope

Sunday, October 25, 2020

Land’s End, Sayville NY

Dr. Robert and Mrs. Anne Jacobs

Garden Party guests

Rob and Anne have been married for 42 years.  Rob has been practicing plastic surgery in the Port Jefferson area, also for 42 years.  He is on the medical staff at St. Charles Hospital, Mather Memorial Hospital, Peconic Bay Medical Center, and St. Catherine of Sienna Hospital.  Dr. Jacobs was for many years Chief of plastic surgery at St. Charles Hospital.  He and his partner, Dr. Hillard Warm are blessed with an extraordinary staff at their office and surgical location.

Anne and Rob are the proud parents of David and Ellen, along with two cats, Ernie and Salem.  David is the family expert in all things religious and is the best role-model, advocate and great brother to his younger sister.  Ellen has always been the much needed extrovert and activities manager in her family. She joined Maryhaven in 2005 and has blossomed in the Terryville Day program, her work environment in Yaphank, and her residential setting in Rocky Point.  Ellen is especially proud of her ability to earn money and her participation in the hydroponic farming initiative.

Devotion to family, the community and the environment defines the Jacobs’ family.  They are long time members of the North Shore Jewish Center and are enthusiastic supporters of cat shelters and bird sanctuaries and are committed to sound woodland  management..

Engagement in Maryhaven’s goals was a natural fit for Anne and Rob.  They have participated in many events from the major fund raisers to the car washes, bake sales, garage sales, Day Hab auctions, and the annual Hanukkah party.  Anne is especially enthusiastic about the kale produced by the hydroponic farming, saying it is awesome!

Every day Rob and Anne are deeply grateful for the excellent care, affection and joy provided by Maryhaven’s dedicated staff.  Their enthusiasm in carrying out Maryhaven’s mission is inspiring to watch
