30 Jun Friends for Life Seniors Foundation 2nd Annual event
On Thursday, June 16th, Friends for Life Seniors Foundation hosted its’ 2nd Annual event at Marjorie Post Park. Nearly 300 local seniors from the Massapequa Community gathered together for a fun-filled “Senior Day in the Park”. The day started with opening comments from the Foundation’s founder, Amy Recco, followed by sponsor announcements. All attendees enjoyed a lavish barbeque lunch, catered by Massapequa’s famous Broadway Gourmet and included burgers, chicken, hot dogs, fresh corn, and lots of delicious sides! Dessert consisted of juicy watermelon and Dilly Bars provided by Dairy Queen.
Our resident MVP DJ Michael Veccia played music that had our seniors jumping out of their seats, dancing and having loads of fun. Over 21 Raffle Baskets were on display throughout the day, many donated from our sponsors and local businesses. 21 lucky winners took home prizes including a complimentary pair of hearing aids, an iPad, miscellaneous gift cards to local restaurants, salons, retail stores and one amazing lottery board! In addition, they took away a photo souvenir with fun pictures taken with their friends and loved ones. A big shout out to Mother Nature who delivered a beautiful cool day after a strong morning storm! It was amazing to watch the smiling faces, and people enjoying a wonderful day together. We look forward to our next extravaganza.
