King Kullen’s 34th annual James A. Cullen Memorial Golf Outing has raised $100,000 for Little Flower Children and Family Services of New York. The nonprofit organization finds adoptive and foster homes for children on Long Island and in New York City.
King Kullen Co-President Brian C. Cullen explained that he and his brothers started the annual golf outing more than three decades ago to pay tribute to their father, James A. Cullen, and to support Little Flower’s foster care and adoption services.
King Kullen has raised more than $3 million for Little Flower, in total, throughout the years.
Little Flower Executive Director Corinne Hammons stated, “So many children and families have been helped thanks to King Kullen and its close circle of family and friends. Whether at our residences or at homes where Little Flower places children with caring parents, we are able to continue our mission as a result of the hands-on involvement of Brian, Tom and James Cullen and the many King Kullen employees who contribute their time each year.”
A nonsectarian, nonprofit organization, Little Flower Children and Family Services of New York provides residential and foster boarding home care, as well as adoption services. Little Flower has its main campus in Wading River, executive offices in Brooklyn Heights, and additional locations in Brooklyn and Queens. Little Flower also operates the only residential special-act public school district in Nassau and Suffolk counties, which offers academic services for children with special educational needs.
