On Wednesday, April 10th at the Crest Hollow Clountry Club in Woodbury, New York, Senior Partner Catherine Stanton will be honored by The Education & Assistance Corporation (EAC) at their 13th Annual “Light of Hope” luncheon for being a steadfast supporter of EAC and their work with at-risk children, families and communities. If you would like to purchase tickets to the luncheon, you can do so here. If you cannot make it to the luncheon but would like to donate to EAC, you can do so here.
The keynote speaker at the luncheon will be Katie Beers, co-author of “Buried Memories: Katie Beers’ Story”. Twenty years ago Katie Beers was held captive in an underground bunker for 17 days. Her book, now on the NY Times best seller’s list, is the never–before-told true story of survival, memory and recovery after her abduction by a family friend in 1992 just before her 10th birthday. Because of Katie Beers’ case, EAC’s Suffolk County Child Advocacy Center at the Pat & Mary Bagnato Place for Kids was established, and continues to help hundreds of child abuse victims every year.
EAC’s 13th Annual “Light of Hope” Luncheon, presented by Bethpage Federal Credit Union, is considered one of Long Island’s premier business luncheons. Don’t miss this special opportunity to support EAC and to network with a diverse group of individuals from the business and private sector. Please join us April 10th, 2013 from 11:30 A.M. to 2:30 P.M. at the Crest Hollow Country Club to help make a difference in the lives of people in need.
