Nominate Extraordinary Women For Recognition

In recognition of their contributions to the community, Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and the Nassau County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NCSPCA) invites residents to nominate extraordinary women who make a difference in Nassau County, give back to their community, inspire and/or lead by example. Their achievements will be held on Thursday, May 18, at 6 p.m. at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City. 

“There are so many extraordinary women in Nassau County who spend countless hours giving back to our community and I encourage residents to nominate those who are truly deserving of recognition,” said Mangano. “Prior honorees have been nothing short of extraordinary and I welcome all to attend this year’s event as it promises to be a great success with more outstanding honorees and magnificent signature desserts by top bakers.

The Just Desserts celebration and ceremony will benefit the NCSPCA, which partners with The Safe Center LI to house the pets of domestic violence victims. Tickets for the celebration are $20 each, and entitle guests to sample a variety of signature desserts from several local bakeries. Tickets to the Just Desserts celebration sell out quickly and will not be available at the door.

To request a nomination ballot, donate a prize, basket, or gift certificate that will be auctioned off at the event for charity; and/or purchase tickets, contact Kim Collins at 516-571-4044 or
