The staff, board, and volunteers of SHAREing & CAREing are indebted to everyone who supported our cancer support services in 2019. We’ve made incredible impact in the Queens community, offering one-on-one counseling to those newly diagnosed with cancer, continuing our BEAT program, which provides mammogram assistance to the underinsured and uninsured, and providing breast cancer education at local schools though our Be A Friend To Your Mother program.
We could not have accomplished everything we have this year without the undying support and funding from the New York City Council. Council Member Danny Dromm, in particular, has been a long-time champion, and was awarded the SHAREing & CAREing Public Service Award this year.
We are especially grateful to our Annual Benefit sponsors: First Central Savings Bank, The Pistilli Family, Rite Flow Mechanical Corp., Wavecrest Management, Harley Owners Group—New York City Chapter, Mount Sinai Queens, NYC Health+Hospitals/Queens, Self Reliance New York Federal Credit Union, Meridian Capital Group, LLC, NYC Health+Hospitals/Elmhurst, Pistilli Realty Group, NYCB, Presti & Naegele, Mr. Jack Chiello/Astoria Bakery, Jaspan Schlesinger, LLP, Sacco & Fillas, LLP, Quontic Adaptive Digital Bank, LMS Entertainment, The Kril Family, The D&F Development Group, Hawkins Consulting Inc., and Patriot Electric Corp.
And of course, our Annual Benefit Honorees this year were pivotal in helping us reach out to the Queens community with education on cancer prevention, wellness, treatment, and survivorship. With the help of Mount Sinai Queens, NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst, and NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens, we were able to reach cancer patients when they most needed our help and guidance. And to our Guests of Honor, The Pistilli Family, and our Gloria D’Amico Lifetime Achievement Award winner Anna Kril, we are forever grateful for their many years of service and support of our organization.
Thank you for another incredible year and thank you for all you have done and continue to do to support our work. We cannot do it without you. We hope 2020 brings you health, happiness and peace.
