    The Honorees for the Angela’s House Spring Gala

    PAT CASSETTA
    Pat came to the United States in 1939 from Rome, Italy. He joined the Marine Corp at age 16 and served from 1944 to 1947 in the Pacific and fought in the Battles of Okinawa and Saipan. He has served as President and has held various other offices in the United Veterans Organization of Nassau County and the 1st Marine Division Assn., NY Chapter. He works diligently on veterans’ issues to ensure that those who have fought to preserve our freedom are not forgotten. Pat also maintains a close relationship with the active Marines, assisting them with housing and education and helps familiarize them with the area to make their transition here easier. Pat also visits elementary schools and teaches the children the importance of honoring the flag and our country and to appreciate the freedom they enjoy.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Since 2003 both Pat and Angelo have helped with the Nassau County 9/11 Memorial Foundation. They worked tirelessly for more than 4 years, until its completion, overseeing the construction site in Eisenhower Park, assisting the volunteer construction workers and working with architects and local government officials.

    Angel of Hope Statue

    In 2007 Bob Policastro the founder and Executive Director of Angela’s House met Pat Cassetta by chance. From that day Pat , Angelo and Bob worked on bringing the Angel of Hope statue to Eisenhower Park to honor all parents that have lost a child. On December 7th 2008 we had a breath taking opening ceremony along with a candle light vigil. This project would not be possible without the help and devotion of Pat Cassetta and Angelo Ciotta.

    Christmasville on Long Island

    The Christmasville House!
    Chris Buckley usually starts decorating in the middle of October to have it all ready for Thanksgiving night. It takes him 4-6 hours a day during the week and all of the weekends to plan, setup and wire all of the decorations. During the holiday season we collect donations for Angela’s House and last year we raised more than $1,800.00 and would like to thank all of Long Island for all of your support. Chris is responsible for everything. He has such dedication and that holiday spirit to do all of this. He says “Seeing a kid’s face light up with excitement and joy is such a phenomenal feeling”. Our Christmas display is on everyday between 5:00-11:00pm from Thanksgiving night to the first Saturday after New Years.

    On December 13th, Santa made an early stop at the Christmasville house. Visitors took photos with Santa. The new favorite decorations of 2008 is the brand new computer controlled Christmas mega-tree and the New Years Time Square Building.

    A Night for a Cure

    What a spectacular evening. The Night for a Cure was on November 13th 2008. This affair was special in many ways. It helped to bring about awareness and raise money for nineteen childhood diseases and illnesses. There were many things that came together to make this event a success. Oheka Castle generously provided a venue for an enchanted evening. Our student volunteers did an exceptional job playing music, escorting guests, raffles sales, serving food and the student presentation. The food was spectacular with local restaurants donating their favorite dishes for a delectable cocktail hour and dinner. The donated baskets that filled the grand ball room were amazing. To top it off, the parents and families of the nineteen diseases and illness joined together with their guests and friends to enjoy the love and effort that went into having this special evening.
