Roslyn Heights, NY, March 2, 2020— More than 50 fans of Jeopardy and Trivial Pursuit had a terrific night as North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center hosted its second annual Trivia Night on February 27th at Gino’s Trattoria and Pizzeria of New Hyde Park.
The fun-filled fundraiser featured unlimited wine, beer, soft drinks and appetizers, along with trivia from movies, music, sports and more. Most importantly, it helped support the Guidance Center’s many programs to help kids and teens with issues such as depression, anxiety and substance use disorder.
Jeff Greenblatt, Assistant Counsel Regulatory at PSEG Long Island and co-chair of Trivia Night, was excited to play a role in the event. “Long Island is a special place,” said the Roslyn resident. “It’s where I grew up, work and raise my family. I always feel good anytime I’m able to give back to the local community. That’s why it’s such an easy decision to support an agency like the Guidance Center now and in the future.”
The event’s other co-chair, Syosset’s Josh Brookstein, Partner at Sahn Ward Coschignano PLLC, said the Trivia Night fundraiser was a terrific way to have a great time while supporting the lifesaving work of the Guidance Center: “Whether it is providing youngsters with a safe place to play while their grown-ups deal with contentious matters in Nassau County Family Court, or it is providing critical early childhood and mental health care, the Guidance Center is dedicated to restoring and strengthening the well-being of all children and their families.”
Guidance Center Board President Paul Vitale, who spoke at the event, thanked the co-chairs, attendees and event sponsors Anton Media, DG Capital, PSEG Long Island and Sahn Ward Coschignano. “Jeff and Josh did a wonderful job bringing their many friends and colleagues out to have loads of fun in a friendly and spirited competition,” said Vitale. “We are so grateful to everyone who came out to support the Guidance Center’s lifesaving work.”
The annual event will be held again next year in February and is open to the public.
