A Mother Gives Back

$100K donation for Life’s WORC

In recognition of the superior care her daughter Marjorie Levine received, the late Elsie Levine, formerly of Great Neck, has bequeathed $100,000 to Life’s WORC. The recently deceased Levine was an ardent advocate for those suffering from developmental disabilities. According to her daughter Cathy Levine, Elsie Levine turned her grief and pain into action and this gift demonstrates the gratitude and peace of mind Life’s WORC provided for her entire family.

“My mother had overwhelmingly positive feelings about the care my sister received through Life’s WORC,” added Cathy Levine. “Life’s WORC represented the dawn of giving those with special needs a life and an opportunity to reach their potential.”

It’s all in the family at Milena’s

Some families have weekly dinners, or go on yearly vacations. Other families run a business together. When it comes to Milena’s Garden Center and Garden City’s Basso Family, it’s the latter.

When John Basso was 18, he emigrated from Argentina found an old house on Jericho Turnpike in New Hyde Park, and turned it into a nursery in April 1997. He named his business after his daughter, Milena. Flowers are associated with femininity, he feels, so the name was a perfect fit for his nursery.
