Nassau County, NY - January 26, 2016 - Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and his wife, Linda, will host a Women’s History Month Celebration – Just Desserts - honoring some of Nassau’s most extraordinary women on Thursday, March 10th at 6:00 p.m. at the Cradle of Aviation Museum, located on Charles Lindbergh Blvd., in Garden City. The celebration will benefit the Nassau County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). Residents are asked to nominate extraordinary women who make a difference in Nassau County, give back to their community, inspire and/or lead by example.
“Women’s History Month provides us a wonderful opportunity to honor the contributions that mothers, sisters, and daughters have made to our communities,” said County Executive Mangano. “Honorees from prior Women’s History Month Celebrations have been nothing short of extraordinary and I welcome all to attend this year’s event as it promises to be a great success with more outstanding honorees and magnificent signature desserts by top bakers.”
All proceeds collected at the Celebration will benefit a wonderful non-profit, the Nassau County SPCA. The Nassau County SPCA rescues, rehabilitates and provides care for animals that have been displaced or harmed. With the help of volunteers, law enforcement agents, rescue workers, veterinarians, they have been able to treat and find permanent homes for countless animals that have been abandoned, abused and/or neglected.
Tickets for the Just Desserts Women’s History Month Celebration are $20 each, and entitle guests to sample a variety of signature desserts from several local bakeries. Tickets will not be available at the door and sell out quickly. To request a Nomination Ballot (all entries must be made by February 26th); donate a prize, basket, or gift certificate that will be auctioned off at the event for charity; and/or purchase tickets, contact Kim Collins at (516) 571-4044 or email.
