Thanks for posting this. The event was a huge success, due to the efforts of CB14 District Manager Doris Ortiz and the contributions of many local businesses and organizations, as well as the NYPD and Brooklyn College. Over 300 teens attended. Some of them found summer jobs, and all of them enjoyed the evening. The kids I met there were amazing!
