The event proved to be a tremendous success, drawing a crowd of over 240 guests. Paige was presented with the J. Rockhill Gray Award for her outstanding community service by the Reverend Michael A. Bird, rector of Christ Church Bronxville. Paige’s husband, Art Nagle, daughter Katie Nagle, son, Chris Nagle, and daughter-in-law, Candace Nagle, were in attendance.

As an avid volunteer and active member of the community, Paige has served with many local charities and civic organizations and is an especially active parishioner of Christ Church Bronxville. She has been an enthusiastic member of the musical therapy ensemble The Song Pipers, which performed at the event, for almost forty years. She donates her time, talent, and treasures where she thinks doing so might help others.
Gramatan Village's president, Kerry Walsh, said, “Paige brings happiness, joy, laughter, and fun to all of us. She is a shining example of spreading sunshine to all.” Gramatan Village's executive director, Sherry Saturno, remarked, "Frank Lloyd Wright once said, 'The longer I live, the more beautiful life becomes.' That notion is proved true to me every day by our members through their zest for life, enthusiasm, and community engagement. Thank you, Paige, for your amazing dedication to the community."
