CTA President Anthony Felicio, Jr. presents a $2,500 check to CFAC President Tara West to support the March 9th Gala and Fashion Show.
Bohemia, NY --- Mr. Anthony Felicio, Jr., President of the Connetquot Teacher’s Association (CTA), met with officers of the Connetquot Foundation for the Advancement of Children (CFAC) on January 19th to provide support for their upcoming Gala and Fashion Show. This annual event helps to raise funds to be used in providing school, community and teacher financial grants that directly support the children of the Connetquot community.
“On behalf of the entire membership I am pleased to present this $2,500 check to CFAC President Tara West,” said Felicio. “The CTA renews its support of this wonderful organization which continues to ‘give back’ to our schools, and sustains our students, and teachers. Without the financial support of the CFAC, special programs and equipment, for our students, and classroom training for our teachers, would not be available. I hope this CTA contribution will help continue their fantastic work.”
The Connetquot Foundation for the Advancement of Children (CFAC) Community Gala and Fashion Show is scheduled for Thursday, March 9, 2017 at Villa Lombardi's in Holbrook. There will be two Honorees, and six 'Community Stars' to be recognized. A record-breaking 350 guests attended the 2016 gala, that recognized Peter Leis and Joseph Maniaci. Foundation supporters who attended the gala had the opportunity to cheer for fellow teachers that modeled classic outfits, and to continue to support the work of the CFAC. Over the years the organization has provided over $130,000 in school, community and teacher financial grants. These awards help purchase equipment and supplies, support special student assemblies, and provide training that directly benefits the students of the Connetquot community. Additional information about purchasing tickets to the gala can be accessed at: www.connetquotfoundation.org.
Past recipients of the William J. Lindsay II Founders Award are Mark Dellecave, John Lasher, Helen Maloney and Barbara Brodsky. Save the date, March 9th, for a good cause, and great fun!
