Family Service League is pleased to announce that its annual Hampton’s Gala held on Friday, July 14, 2017 at the Oceanbleu on Dune Road in Westhampton Beach was a Sold-Out success. Proceeds from the Gala support the 60 programs FSL provides for thousands of Long Island families and individuals in need.
FSL was pleased to honor Lincoln Computer Services with the Corporate Leadership Award and The Houseknecht Family with the Community Leadership Award. Teddy Cillis, President & CEO, and John Antimisiaris, Vice President & CTO, accepted the award on behalf of Lincoln. Alice Houseknecht, founder of the foundation graciously accepted the award and spoke about the positive impact that FSL has had on the East End. Both honorees are strong advocates of the many programs offered by FSL and understand the need to increase funding for services being provided to our Long Island community residents. It was a privilege to recognize both for their vision and commitment to Family Service League’s mission.
Our Gala Committee, led by Co-Chairs, Jim Petrocelli of J. Petrocelli Contracting Inc. and Kim Stevens of Douglas Elliman Real Estate, planned an amazing evening of oceanfront cocktails, gourmet cuisine, dancing, and fabulous designer auction. A wonderful evening for a great cause!
“We were excited to assist Family Service League with the Hampton’s Gala. Over $200,000 of much needed funds were generated from this fantastic East End tradition. It required a collaborative effort on the part of the generous donors, committee volunteers, and FSL Board and staff. It was an honor to be chosen for the Corporate Leadership Award and we are pleased that proceeds of the night will be helping so many Long Islanders in need.”
