MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- Our beloved colleaguewas honored posthumously Thursday evening.
The Boys and Girls Club of Mount Vernon paid tribute to Elise during the organization's annual gala. She was a longtime supporter of the organization.
Elise's husband, CBS New York photographer Graig Henrigues, and other family members were there as she was recognized for representing Mount Vernon with class and pride.
"We are grateful as a family for this honor. We support children. We love to encourage them. Elise and I spoke at length prior to her passing about creating a situation where young people could learn about different careers," said Elise's sister Kiya Finch Roberts.
Elise died suddenly in July at the age of 51.
