The 66th Annual Forget Me Not Ball Enjoyed by All
The 66th annual Forget Me Not Ball was held at the Chateau Briand in Carle Place on Saturday, October 27th, 2018. All the guests enjoyed a fabulous evening that began with an exquisite cocktail hour followed by dinner and dancing in the spectacular ballroom. The evening’s theme was “Great Gatsby” and many female guests were decked out in flapper dresses, headpieces, pearls and glamorous arms length gloves! A few of the men wore spats and dapper hats! The centerpieces by “Flowers by Voegler” were magnificent and featured white ostrich feathers dappled with strands of crystals and pearls! The food was delicious, the music fantastic and the guests truly enjoyed every moment.
The three honorees were positively amazing and so deserving of their honors.
Harold Jay Greenberg Torch of Leadership Award
The Dr. Jack & Kellie McElwain Humanitarian Award
Susan Gordon Ryan
Lifetime Achievement Award
CP Nassau Executive Director, Bob McGuire thanked all of these incredible honorees on behalf of all at the Agency. Another highlight of the evening was a demonstration of the MOVEMENT program at the Children’s Learning Center by The Head of the Physical Therapy Department, Symong Choi. Symong worked with a student from the school whose smile just lit up the room and her mom gave a emotional speech that had the audience spellbound.
The night ended with a lucky group winning $5,000 and many guests winning some of the gorgeous raffle baskets that added much fun and excitement to the evening. The event raised significant funds for CP Nassau that will be used directly by programs and services at the Agency. Thank you to all who placed journal ads, attended and to our sponsors BDO and Corporate Synergies.
