Commack's Child Care Council of Suffolk, Inc. (CCCS) honored to Long Island good-doers during its Champions of Children luncheon at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury.
The event paid tribute to Ken Rosenblum, associate dean for administration and director of the Veterans’ and Service Members’ Rights Clinic at Touro Law Center, and Dr. Shaun L. McKay, president of Suffolk County Community College (SCCC).
McKay emphasized the importance of making the investment to ensure that safe, high-quality child care is available to everyone who needs it. He also spoke about how high-quality child care and early childhood education offer myriad benefits to educational institutions and to society.
“We are grateful to all our luncheon attendees. The proceeds from this event help support our vital programs and services for children, child care providers and the community,” Janet Walerstein, CCCS executive director said in a statement.
The CCCS luncheon attendees also enjoyed an inspiring musical performance by the Commack High School Independent Creative Arts Jazz Ensemble.
