Photos from our Celebrating Connections Event

On May 3, 2007 the Suffolk Community Council held its annual Celebrating Connections fundraising event at Flowerfield in St. James.  Each year the Council honors a worthy recipient of the Long Island Man of the Year and the Long Island Woman of the Year. 

The Long Island Man of the Year award was presented to Mr. Michael L. Nolan , former CEO & President of Southside Hospital.

The Long Island Woman of the Year award was presented to Ms. Linda Howard Weissman , Assistant Dean for Institutional Advancement at Touro Law Center.

The awards are given each year to individuals who have demonstrated a life-long commitment to promoting the Suffolk Community Council's mission of improving the quality of life for residents of Suffolk County while fostering self-determination and empowerment.

We also presented our Long Island Advocate of the Year award.  This award is given each year to a recipient who has given their time and energy to make life better for others.    The recipient of this year's Long Island Advocate of the Year award was Ms. Mary Lou Beldy, volunteer for organizations such as AARP, Family Service League and VIBS.
