Safe Center Raises Big Money At Taste That Jazz


It was a night for the Jazz Ages. Close to 300 guests recently gathered at The Carltun in Eisenhower Park to support The Safe Center’s annual food, beverage and dessert tasting fundraiser, Taste That Jazz. This year’s event highlighted more than 40 vendors specializing in various types of cuisine, beverages and desserts. It was a sensational evening of culinary excellence and musical charm, which raised close to $50,000 due to the generous support of all involved.

Proceeds from this event will support direct services and programs provided to adult and child victims of abuse. Those in need of help can access a 24-hour domestic abuse and sexual assault hotline 516-542-0404, legal assistance and advocacy, crisis intervention, emergency safe shelter, referrals, transitional and permanent housing, individual and group counseling, and hospital advocacy.

The Safe Center extends its heartfelt appreciation to the many generous sponsors, vendors and gracious in-kind raffle donors, numerous guests, and committed volunteers. They also applaud The Morrie Louden Group, Greg Sweney, Herrick’s High School Jazz Quintet, and Marty of Event Pros for donating their time and talent to entertain guests this year. The continued faith and support of the organization’s work enables The Safe Center to restore hope and make a difference in the lives of the children and adults
being served.
