Joseph A. Farkas, President and Trustee of the Garden City Real Estate Professionals Foundation (“GCRE”) announced recently that the Foundation had donated year end gifts totaling $15,000 to five important Garden City related charities and foundations including Charlies Champions Foundation (Charlie Schmitt), Mollies Fund (Mollie Biggane), I’m Not Done Yet Foundation (Bobby Menges), Tomorrows Hope Foundation, The Interfaith Nutrition Network (The INN) and The Garden City Village Historical Society. Each group received a check in the amount of $2,500.
Farkas said “It’s great to see the GCRE Board of Trustees, Executive Committee and all of its committed Members giving back to the community and organizations they care so much about and knowing that these financial contributions have a direct and significant impact on the recipients particularly during challenging economic times.”
Earlier this year, GCRE held its annual Gala, Cocktails for a Cause, at the Garden City Country Club and presented a check to the Tomorrows Hope Foundation in the amount of $100,000 on behalf of its members in support of their great work. Tomorrows Hope Foundation gives hundreds of children the opportunity to attend Catholic elementary schools on Long Island by providing scholarships through active fundraising.

Over 200 guests attended the evening in the club’s grand ballroom which was filled with music, dancing, great food and drinks.
