As Media & Communications Manager of Extravagant Realty www.extravagantrealty.com I attended our first Glen Cove Chamber of Commerce meeting last night.
Every month a member of the Chamber of Commerce hosts the meeting. This month after the meeting we were offered a tour of this memorial museum. "The Holocaust Memorial" is located in Welwyn Preserve. The surrounding area astonishing, though it was a bit to early to enjoy the blooming of spring. The history of the Holocaust is set up in 7 rooms of the mansion, displaying photo's to actual film coverage you can tour the history and learn facts about the Holocaust. Also they have a "Tolerance Center" which is teaching the lessons of the Holocaust to fight intolerance and bullying. Here is the link to their website to visit for more information & hours http://www.holocaust-nassau.org/
I would also like to mention that they will be having their annual "Tolerance Benefit & Auction" on Tuesday, May 8th at "The Crest Hollow Country Club" in Woodbury 6:30p-9:30p https://www.holocaust-nassau.org/events/upcoming-events/211-tolerance-auction and they have many other events you can view on their website.
The meeting starts off with introductions, and then Mrs. Jane Suozzi, wife of the mayor Ralph Suozzi spoke about a fundraiser she is working on to raise money for another great organization located in Glen Cove called "The Inn". http://www.the-inn.org/programs/soup-kitchens.html Mrs. Suozzi wants to raise money to feed 50 families for her 50th Birthday. "The Inn' is a soup kitchen which provides food for over 400,000 people per year. I will update this blog further on how to donate for this specific fundraiser when we obtain the detailed info.
