Old Bethpage, NY - February 3, 2015 - Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and his wife, Linda, will host a reception honoring some of Nassau’s most extraordinary women on Wednesday, March 18th at Old Bethpage Village Restoration. The celebration will benefit The Safe Center LI and the Nassau County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). In addition, County Executive Mangano is calling upon residents to nominate Nassau County women who make a difference in their community, who give back, 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. “The women of Nassau County that have been honored at our 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 raised at the celebration will benefit two wonderful non-profits, the Nassau County SPCA and The Safe Center LI.”

The donations raised from the event will go to help The Safe Center LI which offers a broad spectrum of services from counseling to housing, from advocacy to referrals, through a highly trained, nurturing and compassionate staff of professionals well qualified to provide the highest level of services to victims of domestic or dating abuse, child abuse, rape and sexual assault. In addition, this year there will be a second beneficiary the Nassau County SPCA, a nonprofit organization. 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 who have been abandoned, abused and/or neglected.

Tickets for the Just Dessert’s event are $10 each, and entitle guests to sample a variety of signature desserts from several local bakeries. Tickets will not be available at the door and do sell out quickly. To request a Nomination Ballot (All entries must be made by March 2nd); looking to donate a prize, basket, or gift certificate that will be auctioned off at the event for charity; and/or looking for tickets should contact Kim Collins at (516) 571-4044 or via Email.
