It is with the realization that you are reading this as summer begins, although it is being written in May. Ah...summer days of blue skies and warm breezes!
We have had some very successful fund raisers with more coming up for this summer and beyond.
On April 5th, we went to "The Escape Room" in Mineola. It was a fun time for all of the participants, and by the way, we did "escape."
Our annual Card Party at The Jolly Fisherman in Roslyn was a huge success. It was evident by our attendance, and as always, the food and service were impeccable.
May 24th, once again, found us at Crest Hollow Country Club for our annual Book and Author Luncheon, always a sell-out event. We enjoyed a continental breakfast, a full course luncheon and heard three fabulous authors speak. The were Fiona Davis about The Address, Caroline Leavitt about Cruel Beautiful World, and Marilyn Simon Rothstein about Husbands and Other Sharp Objects.
Our annual Charity Presentation and Installlation on June 21st was a spectacular event. It was held at Temple Chaverim in Plainview, where we enjoyed an outstanding breakfast and luncheon. A great summer shopping boutique was an added plus to the event. June Stelboum, the VP of Philanthropy, presented our annual grants to extremely grateful recipients, while allowing us to see where our fund raising efforts and donations go.
On July 29th, we are going to Molloy College to see The 2018 Ms. New York Senior America Pageant. It will be exciting to observe the talents of the contestants and watch as the winner is crowned. Look for details on the Events page of this website. The same goes for our Brunch and Fashion Show at Lord and Taylor in Garden City. That will be held on August 2nd, and our members will be "strutting their stuff" to make this a wonderful day.
Be sure to check out the Events page about our Fall Gala, which will take place in October. And come November, we will be visiting the Comedy Club.
Your support of MWI fund raising events is what enables us to support local charities with much needed money. Without the participation of our members, this would not be possible. Yes, it takes a village!
Kudos to our Event Chairs: Phyliss Kayne for The Escape Room and lunch; Sharon Wallach and Ava Gorkin for the Lunheon and Card Pary; Eileen Gonzalez, Susan Kromol, and Carole Metzger for the Book and Author Luncheon.
It is never too early for good wishes. We would like to say "Shanah Tovah" to all our members and their families. Have a happy, healthy and joyous New Year.
