Special Recognition for Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts
In recognition of Women’s History Month in March, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano is calling on members of the community to nominate local women who have made extraordinary contributions. Nominations should be submitted no later than February 15th.
County Executive Mangano stated, “It is my honor to host this year’s Women’s History Month Celebration which recognizes women for the work they do all year long making our County a better place to live and work.”
Nominees will be sought in the categories of Community Service; Drug Abuse/Prevention; Protecting the Most Vulnerable; and Broke Gender Barriers. Furthermore, nominations will also be accepted for women who performed extraordinary acts to further Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. Nominations, explaining why a resident should be considered for recognition, should be mailed to Kim Collins, Theodore Roosevelt Executive & Legislative Building, 1550 Franklin Avenue, Mineola, NY 11501 or emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
County Executive Mangano and his wife, Linda, will host the Women’s History Month Celebration in mid-March at Old Bethpage Restoration Village. Gift baskets with donations from local merchants and business owners will be auctioned off and the proceeds will go to the Nassau Hurricane Recovery Fund (NHRF). The fund was created by County Executive Mangano last November to assist Nassau residents who suffered devastation from Hurricane Sandy and were ineligible for assistance from government relief programs. Donations to NHRF can be made on line at https://apps.nassaucountyny.gov/recoveryfund. The $10 admission fee for the Women’s History Month Celebration entitles guests to coffee, tea and a variety of baked goods from local bakeries.
