An evening of music and comedy will help raise funds for programs for children in Huntington Station.
The Jan. 19 program, “A Diva, A Comedian and Broadway for the Children of Huntington Station,” starring Tony Award winner and four-time Grammy Award nominee Melba Moore with the Boys and Girls Choirs of Harlem Ensemble and featuring Geoff Cohen, Chris and Kyle Timson is set for the Paramount.
Tickets range in price from $25 to $250 and are for sale online via Ticketmaster and in person at either the Paramount box office or the United Methodist Church.
“Huntington Station has been energized as the community has come together to sponsor, organize and participate in events celebrating the Station’s diversity and pride,” Supervisor Frank Petrone said. "I hope everyone will mark January 19 on their calendars and take part.” Petrone, Councilwoman Susan A. Berland and the United Methodist Men of the United Methodist Church Huntington-Cold Spring Harbor will host the event.
One of the proposed initiatives for the area is a water/splash park.
“A Diva, A Comedian and Broadway for the Children of Huntington Station” is an excellent way to support the children of Huntington Station,” commented Councilwoman Susan A. Berland. “It would be great for the community to see the creation of a water/splash park in Huntington Station and this fundraiser could go a long way towards making that happen."
Sponsors are: AvalonBay Communities, Bethpage Federal Credit Union, LIPA, Triangle Equities and Verizon. More sponsorship opportunities are still available.
Contact Berland’s office at (631) 351-3018 or Marie Rouse at (631) 427-0438 for more information.
“On behalf of the United Methodist Men, we hope this event will raise the funding necessary for programs that benefit the children of Huntington Station including, but not limited to, a splash/water park," the Reverend Dr. Luonne Rouse said. "We encourage our fellow faith communities to partner with us in this endeavor and we look forward to enjoying this great event with our neighbors.”
The program begins at 7:30 p.m.
Alfredo’s Pane DiCasa Bakery opened last week in Huntington Village. Petrone and Berland joined friends and family of owner Caterina Generoso at the Nov. 30 grand opening of the bakery at 90 New York Ave.
