On Monday, April 3, more than 350 guests 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 more than $54,000 due to the generous support of all involved.
Proceeds from Taste That Jazz 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 its generous sponsors, vendors, in-kind raffle donors, staff and committed volunteers and guests.
Also special thanks to Herrick’s High School Jazz Quintet, Lindsey Hochler, Marty of Event Pros and Greg Sweney for donating their time and talent to entertain guests this year.
