Three success stories evidencing the club is accomplishing its objectives are: Elizabeth Garcia, named the club’s 2014 Youth of the Year; Linesha Davis, recipient of the Louis M. Sanford Scholarship; and Essence Fowler, recipient of the Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club Scholarship.
Garcia, 17, hopes to accomplish many things in her life, but two ambitions stand out most: giving back to the community and making her parents proud. Serious, focused and determined, Garcia is heading to Hunter College this fall to pursue a degree in biology followed by medical school to pursue a career in obstetrics and gynecology. After completing her specialty in OB-GYN, she plans on advancing her career with a second specialty in pediatrics.

Relay is an event that takes place all over the world to help raise money for cancer and cancer research. With community support, this battle can be less of a struggle.
“Relay for Life is such an important and memorable event. I tried to capture it in one emotional, beautiful, and hopeful concert,” says Frank.
