Meg's Story

Beloved daughter, sister, fiancé, aunt, niece, cousin, and friend, Megan Elizabeth Garbach was a ray of sunshine in every life that she touched.  Selfless, loving, giving, faithful, free-spirited, loyal, creative, silly, witty and "champion of the underdog" – these are some of the words that best describe Meg. She found joy in the simple things life had to offer and cherished her relationship with nature.  Meg had a smile that could light up any room. Truly, her smile mirrors her soul.

The MEG’s Gift Board has selected East House to be the primary beneficiary of funds raised in 2021. Incorporated in 1966 as a non-profit agency, it began as a safe and supportive transitional residence for persons leaving psychiatric hospitals who were not yet ready to live on their own. It was the first "halfway" house for persons in recovery from mental illness in New York State. From this one house on Dartmouth Street in Rochester with three employees, East House has grown into a comprehensive rehabilitation agency with 210 employees that provides several levels of supervised and independent housing options along with a comprehensive array of programs and services for over 1500 persons annually in the Greater Rochester area who are recovering from persistent mental illness and/or substance use disorders.

Come register for our next event!
You can help make a difference.

Our hearts are filled with gratitude as we give thanks to our generous supporters who continued contributions to MEG’s Gift during 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic forced us to curtail our fundraising events!

As we resume the summer fundraising, at a scaled back version, our golf tournament will be held at Shadow Lake courses on July 24th with box lunches and dinners for golfers. Unfortunately, the silent auction and dinner will not take place in order to conform to state mandated protocol for community gatherings. It is our sincere hope that your generosity will outshine the darkness cast by this pandemic and that the lost revenue from the cancellation of the dinner and silent auction will be lessened.

Event Agenda:

Executive A Tee off - 12:00 PM

18-hole Tee off - 1:00 PM

Executive B Registration and Lunch - 2:00 PM
