The Ronald McDonald House of Long Island marked its 20th year of service to families by honoring many devoted volunteers of the House during the 2006 Volunteer Recognition Dinner. In recognition of the outstanding efforts of these volunteers, who are the "pulse" of the House, the House hosted its annual dinner/dance recently. The evening was marked with festivities, including musical entertainment, a solo performance of The Rose by Volunteer Maria Sitnikova, food and beverages and an award ceremony.
