UPATE: The tickets are now all sold. If you plan on attending the Mayor’s Charity Evening on May 12 you now have until this Saturday, May 5, to lock in your tickets at the $95 per person price.
The Mayor’s Charity Evening will honor seven individuals, organizations and businesses of Verona who have contributed to the growth and well being of the community. The 2012 honorees are Richard Williamson, Dante Mercurio, Michelle DeWitt, Michele Kiernan, Frank Anthony’s Restaurant, The Verona 9/11 Committee and MyVeronanj.com.
Williamson has been a tireless volunteer for the Verona Baseball & Softball League for many years. Mercurio runs the elementary and middle school recreational track program and serves as a junior wrestling coach, and Kiernan is the organizing force behind many events within Our Lady of the Lake church and the Verona Sports Boosters. DeWitt runs programs for the seniors in the Hillwood complex and beyond. Anthony Totoriello, the owner of Frank Anthony’s, took a moribund auto shop on a key Bloomfield Avenue corner and turned it into a destination restaurant. The 9/11 committee created a memorial and scholarship in honor of the Veronans who died in the World Trade Center attack. MyVeronaNJ.com is being recognized for its efforts to inform Veronans, and those interested in our town.
The group will be honored at a dinner set for Saturday, May 12, from 6 to 11 p.m. at the Richfield Regency. Reservations for the evening are $95 if purchased prior to May 5. Tickets purchased after that date are $125. To make your reservations, please send an e-mail.
