Event Highlights

The Gala features dinner & dancing, open bar, silent auction and spending the evening with great friends and colleagues.  The Gala is being held on November 2, 2023 at 7 pm at the Brookville Country Club.  This year’s theme Fly Me To The Moon is a nod to the casual & classy supper club atmosphere.

This year we are proud to honor a TRIO of community minded individuals who have given of their time, talent and finances to support so many organizations in Oyster Bay and the surrounding communities.  John Specce, Dottie Simons and Rob Brusca, all familiar faces, local business owners, board members, as well as long time and esteemed residents of the community, will be honored that evening. There will also be a special tribute to the Center’s beloved Program Manager, Mary Frignani, who has devoted 30 years of her life to The Life Enrichment Center and is retiring this year.

Music is being provided by Jerry Costanzo & his Gotham City Swingers
The event will raise funds to support the Center’s programs and services that have a vital impact for seniors in our community.
