Heartshare Human Services of New York held its annual dinner-dance benefit to celebrate its 24th anniversary on Thursday night at Russo’s On The Bay, featuring raffles, a DJ and a live performance by 1980s pop singer Alisha.

The event was special for the organization because its Angels on the Bay evaluation center on Cross Bay Boulevard was damaged in Hurricane Sandy. Carol Verdi, Heartshare vice president for educational services, thanked everyone for their support and said the center had reopened and returned to serving the community.

“We are back stronger than ever,” she said.

Welcome to the discussion.
