Kathleen Kammerer Honored At Friendship Circle Luncheon

Written by Dr. Cynthia Paulis, Editorial@antonnews.com Thursday, 06 June 2013 00:00

Kathleen Kammerer from Massapequa Park recently received the Caregiver Award at the Sid Jacobson Jewish Community Center’s 10th annual Friendship Circle Luncheon, witnessed by more than 500 fashionably dressed women at the Garden City Hotel. Notable celebrities on hand were Good Day New York cohost Rosanna Scotto, who was also the event’s emcee, and singer/actress Megan Hilty from the Broadway play Wicked and NBC’s hit drama Smash, who entertained the ladies with her favorite songs from both shows.

The Friendship Circle Luncheon was started 10 years ago by Denise Silverberg, as a way to raise money for programs providing support to adults in their 30s, 40s, and 50s afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease. Silverberg’s mother has the disease, so she knows all too well how difficult the role of caregiver can be, as well as the stresses involved in caring for someone suffering from Alzheimer’s.

Massapequa resident Luciano Sabatini, author of the recently published Bereavement Counseling in the School Setting, is hoping his new book, which draws upon his years of experience in working first-hand with kids in crisis, will help caretakers understand the grieving process of young adults so they can more effectively address these issues.
