Dominican Sisters Family Health Service, Inc., a leading visiting nurse service providing home health care, honored New Canaan resident Anthony Domino, Jr. with the 2015 Mother Mary Walsh Award during its 2015 Hope Gala fundraiser at the Trump National Golf Club in Briarcliff Manor, N.Y., on Nov. 13.

The Mother Mary Walsh Award was established in honor of Mary Walsh, foundress of the Dominican Sisters of the Sick Poor.
