Frank and Camille’s East, a renowned Long Island piano dealership serving the tri-state area, recently celebrated 36 years of business by giving away a Kawai grand piano to a deserving family. As part of the anniversary’s festivities, which took place at Frank and Camille’s Melville showroom and included a multi-day sale and live performances by acclaimed international concert pianists, the store raffled off a Kawai grand piano. The grand prize-winner, Garden City resident Fanny Escobar, will use the piano to help nurture her grandchildren’s love of playing the piano.
Escobar’s daughter, Jackie Rodgers of Commack, is a mother of two children, ages 10 and 8, both of whom are avid pianists. Unable to afford a brand-new piano and seeking to provide her children with an at-home outlet for expressing their musical creativity, Rodgers and her mother arrived at Frank and Camille’s through a strong recommendation, to inquire about purchasing a pre-owned piano – knowing that they could trade-up and receive full value towards a better piano some day. While in the store, Escobar took notice of the raffle that would be taking place over the following weekend. Unable to resist the idea of winning a Kawai grand piano for her grandchildren, Escobar entered her name into the drawing and hoped for the best.

Baseball culture boasts nearly two centuries’ worth of players, coaches and fans of America’s greatest pastime.
That inseparable trio was on display Nov. 28 at the Chateau Briand in Carle Place as local icons Bucky Dent, Dom Scala and Ed Randall joined more than 300 attendees in supporting Adelphi University’s athletic programs and in celebrating the game of baseball.
Lauren Greenberg, a senior at Syosset High School, is quite knowledgeable about skin care. Her father is Dr. Stephen Greenberg, a prominent plastic surgeon, so Lauren has been exposed to a wealth of skin care knowledge growing up. When listening to her friends, she quickly realized that there is a void in skin care products for teenagers who either neglect their skin entirely or use products and procedures that are meant for adults and are too harsh for still developing teenage skin.
More than 120 dogs and puppies were rescued from over-crowded municipal shelters in California and Oklahoma and brought to North Shore Animal League America Headquarters in Port Washington. Hopping aboard the inaugural journey of the Mutt-i-grees Express, the dogs received a ticket for a new life, and hopefully, many of them will find homes for the holidays.
It was in the spirit of the season of giving that North Shore Animal League America (NSALA) launched the Mutt-i-grees Express, a humane relocation program that transports animals to a new life. Since 1991, NSALA’s humane relocation efforts have rescued more than 150,000 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens, and the launch of the Mutt-i-grees Express represents the beginning of a new era.
