JOIN THE JETS FOR A BENEFIT DINNER FOR THE JOAN AND ARNOLD SALTZMAN COMMUNITY SERVICES CENTER AT HOFSTRA UNIVERSITY
Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY ... The Joan and Arnold Saltzman Community Services Center at Hofstra University will present a dinner and reception at Chateau Briand in Carle Place, New York, on Monday, November 12, 2007. The cocktail reception begins at 6:30 p.m. with dinner immediately following.
This fundraiser for the Saltzman Community Services Center will honor the NY Jets and the team’s General Manager Mike Tannenbaum. NY Jets team members will also participate and there will be a silent auction of Jets merchandise and memorabilia.
The Joan and Arnold Saltzman Community Services Center was founded in 1991 with a mission to support the health and well-being of the community and the education of Hofstra students. The Center unites the talents and capabilities of five separate organizations at the University – the Diane Lindner-Goldberg Child Care Institute, the Marriage and Family Therapy Clinic, the Psychological Evaluation and Counseling (PERC) Clinic, the Reading/Writing/Learning Clinic and the Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic – and has helped them expand their services and clientele.
The Saltzman Center clinics serve patients of every age, with a variety of needs, for a very nominal fee. No one in financial aid is ever turned away from the Saltzman Center clinics and even the Child Care Institute has scholarship and financial aid opportunities.
Some of the Saltzman Center’s newer offerings include the Diagnostic and Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders, a Toddler Language Development Program, the Premarital Assessment and Counseling Program, Virtual Reality Therapy and the Institute for the Study and Treatment of Anger and Aggression.
Sponsorship opportunities at the benefit dinner are available at a number of different levels. Individual tickets are also on sale for $250 each. For reservations and more information call (516) 463-6535.
