In line with the spring theme ladies are encouraged to wear warm colors and help celebrate the Greater Woodhaven Development Corporation’s 36th Anniversary.
Performing will be Perry Martin, lead singer of the Paragons, singing doo-wop songs for your listening and dancing pleasure.
At the dinner dance we honor our great elected officials, store and business owners and contributors to our community that makes it great. These very special people will be honored on Friday, June 12, at the “social event of the year” at the beautiful Woodhaven Manor Caterers at 96-01 Jamaica Avenue.
The theme of the GWDC's 36th Anniversary Dinner Dance is “Dance Into Spring” because of the warmth of Spring is here and everyone should dance to celebrate the end of the cold snowy winter.
Our honorees for 2015 are “Woman of the Year” Chris Ward, a recently retired teacher after 28 years at the Forest School (P.S. 97) and 12 years as a parochial school teacher, in appreciation of her encouraging our students to assist our GWDC and WBID in all of our projects and events.
Our “Man of the Year” is Frank Castelli, owner of Beat the Clock Printing on Jamaica Avenue, for his support of the GWDC and WBID as a small business owner. Our “Community Activist Award” goes to Eleanor Errante, a perennial activist and supporter of our good causes.
“Special Recognition Awards” go to NYPD Sergeant Frank DeMarco of the 102nd Precinct, a local boy who has patrolled our Woodhaven for over 15 years, and DSNY Deputy Chief Keith Maisel, formerly of Queens Borough 9, who supported our Woodhaven through the years before his promotion.
Because of their dedication to our commercial strip and the commitment they have shown on behalf of our Woodhaven community, we are proud and privileged to honor them.
