Westchester resident and 2016 Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton attracted a record crowd at The Business Council of Westchester’s (BCW) Annual Fall Dinner held Monday, Nov. 20 at The Hilton Westchester with overflow tables that spilled out into the hallway.
The former first lady, secretary of state and U.S. senator from New York was at the Rye Brook hotel to receive the Westchester Global Leadership Laureate Award.
She was greeted -- after a speech by BCW President and CEO Marsha Gordon -- with a standing ovation, rousing applause, and even a "We love you Hillary" shouted from a group in the back of the room.

Former president Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appeared together onstage Friday for the first time since the 2016 presidential election to answer a host of political and personal questions.
The former First Couple was very casual during the hourlong discussion at the Toyota Music Factory in Irving.
They cracked a few jokes and were very candid on a number of topics — chief among them President Donald Trump, the 2016 election and the way forward for the Democratic Party.
When asked what they would tell Trump if he were seated next to them, Bill Clinton said Trump should, "stop seeking enemies and look for people to work with."
"We're the same age," he added. "What do you want your legacy to be?"
Hillary Clinton said Trump, as president, should do more to unite the country. She also discussed some of her own missteps during the campaign.
"It was the first reality TV campaign. He was the first reality TV candidate and I was the candidate of reality. I was not as entertaining and I admit that," she said.Read more and see photo gallery >>>>
