Mayor Teena Schwartz held the 17th annual Verona Mayor’s Charity Affair today at the Mayfair Farms, honoring several Verona residents and one business for their contributions to the town. The honorees included former town council member Santi Condorelli, real estate and scout leader Steve Janett, unofficial Verona historian and Hilltop conservation advocate Kurt Landsberger, the special education advocacy group C.H.I.L.D., Investors Savings Bank and the Verona Environmental Commission.

Landsberger, who was singled out for his many philanthropic contributions to the town, was philosophical about being a volunteer in Verona. “There are so many things to do,” he said. “All you have to do is pick one, and do it.”

The Mayor’s Charity Affair raises funds that are donated to Verona organizations and programs for town residents. The recipients are determined by the mayor and her committee.
