North Shore Child and Family Guidance Center, which has offices in Roslyn Heights, recently hosted a reception to celebrate the Campaign for the Next Generation and the rededication of the Lucille S. and Martin E. Kantor Bereavement & Trauma Center.
The Guidance Center completed the first stage of the campaign by reaching the goal of $2.5 million. A second stage of the campaign will begin immediately. The campaign was led by board members, Jo-Ellen Hazan and Andrea Leeds.
Seven of the past presidents of the organization were on hand to celebrate the rededication of the Bereavement & Trauma Center named in honor of Lucille S. and Martin E. Kantor: Joan Saltzman (president in 1965), Dorothy Greene (president in 1973), Jane Schwartz (president in 1979), Lucille Kantor (president in 1983), Sandy Garfunkel (president in 1997) and Jo-Ellen Hazan (president in 2005).
The occasion was celebrated with several local government leaders: Nassau County Legislator Judith Jacobs, New York State Assemblymen Chuck Lavine and Michael Montesano, and Town of North Hempstead council members Anna Kaplan and Peter Zuckerman.
