On May 22, 2012, Chabad of West Hempstead will host their Friendship Circle evening of recognition and awards ceremony at The Garden City Hotel at 7:30 p.m. The Friendship Circle provides services and support for Jewish children and teens with special needs through the help of trained teen volunteers and professional therapists. The evening will pay tribute to volunteers who have devoted themselves to the cause.
Nasser Samman, General Manager of The Garden City Hotel has enjoyed a fine working relationship with Rabbi Yossi Lieberman of the Chabad of West Hempstead for close to three years. “Chabad of West Hempstead is an outstanding organization and we take great pride in taking part in their celebrations and fundraising events. Their annual dinner which took place on March 18th in our hotel’s grand ballroom, honoring County Executive Ed Mangano was a huge success, with over 300 people in attendance. The lavish setting enhanced the sumptuous menu offered by Mauzone. Its always a pleasure to serve my friend Rabbi Lieberman and the Chabad of West Hempstead organization and we look forward to hosting many more simchas.”
Rabbi Lieberman appreciates the fact that The Garden City Hotel is the only five star venue in Nassau. “The venue is so elegant and they worked within our budget. Our annual dinner is at the tail end of the dinner season. Everyone who attends, says ‘wow, how did they do this?’”
