FDC Benefit Dinner Thursday, March 12

This Thursday, March 12, I am among the Neighborhood Association Honorees at the Flatbush Development Corporation's (FDC) 34th Anniversary Celebration dinner at Gargiulo's Restaurant, in Coney Island, Brooklyn [GMAP]:
FDC traditionally honors people who have made outstanding contributions to the Flatbush community. Along with neighborhood association and business honorees, this year, FDC's 34th Anniversary Award recipient will be Wendy Weller-Jones, long time neighborhood resident, and FDC volunteer. Her dedication and commitment to Flatbush Development Corporation and the community has been tremendous.
Individual tickets are $135; total contribution less $80.00 per ticket is tax deductible. To purchase tickets, call FDC at (718)859-3800.
The benefit and journal proceeds will help offset the financial cutbacks to our funding from city, state and foundation grants. Proceeds from this event will support the FDC programs and initiatives that help to build a strong community. These include commercial revitalization economic development activities; after-school programs for children and teens; recreation, mediation and health programs for at-risk teenagers; housing assistance to landlords, tenants, homeowners and cooperators; and assistance to our area's immigrant residents.
