The party was at Riccardo’s, and it was a great time for everyone. The room was filled with members of the women’s club and lots of special guests. Every year the club raffles off a plethora of prizes, ranging from small kitchen sets, to a HUGE flatscreen LCD TV. The most sought after prize, though, was a set of two tickets to the Broadway production of Kinky Boots, a backstage tour post-show, and a poster signed by the entire cast – including Cyndi Lauper.
The party was put together by Women’s Club President Kimberly Mullarkey, and because of her hard work it went off without a hitch. There was great food and amazing drinks, and everyone was excited to enter into the raffles, while raising money for the club.
Special guests in attendance included Councilman Costa Constantinides, Peter Vallone Sr., the former Astoria Councilman and the first Speaker of the City Council, and Peter Vallone Jr., the former three-term Astoria City Councilman and long term chair of the Public Safety Committee, and Senator Mike Gianaris.
