Summer 2017

JULY 16, 2017.  

I was truly honored to be chosen by the Director and Board of In Our Own Voices, after they decided I would be given The Friend of the Family Award,  for outstanding contributions to families. I was not expecting that call, much less an award from the Governor, and also State Senator Breslin. IOOV  hosted a red carpet event at Albany's State Street Events by Mazzone, for the ceremony. Family came too. What a beautiful Day! For their big fundraiser, many art pieces were auctioned off. I donated a few fine art prints,  with family and guests snapping them up. Thanks Barb Art and Joe! One was of Senator Tedisco, Dr. Tom Smith and Sal Famularo, our beloved WWII Iwo Jima Survivors. Senator Tedisco is a big fan of  our Iwo Jima vets, and will be presented with a Suzette! portrait of his two favorite WWII veterans  (Thanks Joe!) this Thursday, August 10, 2017.  I hear the press is going to be there!  A big event indeed!
