The 13th annual Glen Cove C.A.R.E.S. Dinner Dance was a huge success due in large part to the kindness and generosity of so many wonderful people in our community.
Held on Jan. 30 at the Metropolitan in Glen Cove, the Partnership for Survival Monte Carlo Night and Dinner Dance was attended by more than 160 guests who came together to celebrate Life, Happiness and Health. The board of directors of Glen Cove C.A.R.E.S. recognized the following five organizations for their ongoing generous support of its programs: Tweezerman International, Astoria Federal Savings, G. Fried Carpet & Design Center, the Glen Cove Teachers Association and Swim Across America.
With much help and support from our volunteers and our community, Glen Cove C.A.R.E.S. has made a difference in the lives of many for more than a decade. Our goals remain simple: to educate, support and bring cancer awareness to our surrounding communities. Through the dedication and hard work of so many, this local volunteer organization continues to raise awareness about the benefits of early detection and cancer prevention. We have also expanded our programs to provide direct aid to people who are in treatment for cancer. Glen Cove C.A.R.E.S. is determined to continue this Partnership for Survival as long as any one of our family and friends faces the diagnosis of cancer.
We are especially grateful to all who have generously donated to this event – individuals, families, local businesses and other volunteer organizations. Glen Cove C.A.R.E.S. and those we have been able to assist are very fortunate to have such tremendous community support. Working together is the key to making our “Partnership for Survival” a success.
We thank you for your friendship and your help.
