Driving rain and cold temperatures could not keep Long Islanders from coming out to support the first annual DogFest Walk ‘n Roll, a fundraiser for Canine Companions for Independence. Held for the first time at Marjorie Post Park in Massapequa, dogs of all breeds and sizes came with their humans with one goal in mind; to raise funds for CCI.
Massapequa resident and event organizer Yvonne Dagger, past president and now board member, discussed the importance of the event.
For as long as she could remember, Christina Amato-Smith has always wanted to open her own hair salon. The Floral Park native worked at a salon down the road from her home, but it wasn’t until 1994 when Amato-Smith made good on her promise to herself.
“I came to Bethpage to open my business because my clients were here,” said Amato-Smith, who now lives in Lindenhurst and has owned Top Cuts for 20 years.
While her business has been met with much success, in 2008, Amato-Smith’s personal life was met with a life altering challenge when she was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer. It was this event that prompted Top Cuts to organize a cut-a-thon to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer. This year’s event occurs on Saturday, Nov. 1.
Thanks in large part to a substantial increase in sponsor support – and Mother Nature’s cooperation – the 2014 Plainview-Old Bethpage Craft and Gift Fair was a rousing success.
A caravan of vendors filled the parking lot of the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library starting at 7 a.m. By the time fairgoers crossed the blue and green balloon arch at 10 a.m. to receive their free T-shirt and bags stuffed with sponsor goodies, there were 108 booths ready to welcome them on the sunny day.
A special series of medical lectures will be held throughout the country in October. The Plainview Hospital is one of the stops on the tour.
On Sunday, Oct. 19 from 7-9 p.m., a free lecture will be presented by Franz Gringinger, MD, Austria and A.W. Arends, MD, Germany. These specialists are members of the Medical Scientific Group (MWF), a part of the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends.
Dr. Gringinger earned his degree at the University of Vienna in 1987 and from the beginning of his medical career, was interested in alternative methods.
Plainview’s Sweet Karma Bakery is one of many Long Island restaurants, bakeries and food purveyors that are doing their part to help the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program throughout October’s Breast Cancer Awareness month.
In Plainview, Brian Fishman, the baker/owner of Sweet Karma Bakery is preparing pink velvet cupcakes—a buttermilk chocolate cake with pink colored vanilla bean buttercream icing. Half the proceeds will be donated.
The Plainview Water District Board of Commissioners Joel Kessler, Andrew Bader and Edward Shulroff thank Michael Milana for his contribution to conserving and protecting the local water supply.
For his Eagle Scout project, Milana created a rain garden that will conserve groundwater and provide nutrients to plant life on the District’s grounds. A rain garden is a planted depression that gives rainwater runoff a place to be absorbed.
Old Westbury Gardens was the scene of an evening of art where Long Island’s elite came to admire and bid on the beautiful landscapes and portraits painted by Bethpage’s David Peikon.
Sixty paintings were displayed and many of them sold totaling $100,000; of which $30,000 was donated back to Old Westbury Gardens by Peikon.
Those with a passion for the fashionable know they are best served shopping for clothes and accessories at a store with an owner that shares that same zeal.
A practicing attorney for 15 years, Lisa Marcus had always been interested in fashion and sales. She held jewelry parties at her house and also sold real estate for a time. So when the opportunity to run her own clothing store in Plainview arose, the married mother of two jumped at the chance.
A Nassau County Department of Public Works project to remove hundreds of trees across Syosset, Plainview, Hicksville and Bethpage has some residents chopping mad.
Michael Martino, spokesman for the department, said the County is removing these trees — close to 200 lining county and state roadways from Jericho Turnpike in Syosset to the Long Island Rail Road tracks in Bethpage — in order to improve sidewalk safety.
For anyone not invited to the red carpet premeiere of Brad Pitt’s World War II epic Fury, the Old Bethpage Village Restoration is holding a premiere of its own for vets and their families.
The Restoration Village will hold a “khaki carpet” and a parade of World War II armor the weekend of Oct. 11 and 12 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. in a program that will honor the nation’s true stars: the fighting men and women.
