Beefsteak Bonanza: A Big Success!
Close to two hundred people attended our first annual Beefsteak Bonanza on June 14th It was a very successful and fun event for everyone! The tricky tray prizes were plentiful and the beef steak was delicious. The music by Brookwood was awesome. Many thanks go to our Big Bonanza Sponsor: Investors Bank and to our other sponsors Corrados and Steigner Pharmacy. Also thanks to the fabulous sounding band Brook wood for donating their time. Many thanks go to Cindy Giardina the Vice President of the Board of Directors who served as the Beefsteak Chair. She spent countless hours making this event our most successful fundraiser yet! We were able to raise funds to support our mission of helping families and individuals affected by mental illness.
The evening was topped by a presentation of the 2013 Vision and Achievement Award to Dennis Salata, who recently retired from St. Mary’s Hospital in the Behavioral Health Department after 35 years of dedicated service to individuals with mental illness. His family, friends, and fellow workers were all on hand to congratulate and celebrate his achievements.
The Richard Landry Memorial Volunteer Award was awarded to Dennis Biscelglie for his outstanding volunteer service at the MHAPC. For past year he has been volunteering every day serving as our front desk receptionist. Dennis is upholding the legacy left by Richard Landry of community service and devotion to helping people in recovery.
Huge thanks to our sponsors!
