Thank you for making Our End of the Season Benefit a Success!

On the night of September 17th the Creek Beach Club was hopping with supporters of the Oyster Bay Main Street Association as sponsors, guests, and board members got together for the Association's second End of the Season Benefit.  The benefit - organized by board members Tracy Dellomo, John Bonifacio, Henry Clark, Kyle Piechucki and Alex Urdea with support from Executive Director Meredith Maus - sought to raise funds for OBMSA's programs and initiatives in the year to come.

In his welcome to the crowd, the President of OBMSA, John Bonifacio, highlighted some past initiatives of the organization including the design, purchase, and installation of 120 new street signs for the downtown; beautification efforts including the purchase of 16 new street lamps for South Street; and our successful advocacy and fundraising for the preservation of the Trousdell House.  After thanking the crowd for their support he highlighted some new initiatives the organization is trying to fund, including: 
  • hiring an individual to pick up loose debris in the downtown to combat the growing problem of garbage;
  • incorporating new neighborhoods and streets with a second wave of our newly designed street signs; and
  • continuing to advocate for historic buildings in the downtown, with a specific focus on the Mill Pond House and Snouder's Corner Drug Store.

We cannot thank all of our supporters enough - for those who were able to join us and those who sent their well wishes.

As is the case with everything we do, we could not have done this without you!

Thank you!
