The Long Island Chapter of the Knights of Columbus, which includes councils from both Brooklyn and Queens, held its Annual Charity Ball at Russo’s on the Bay in Howard Beach on Saturday May 18.

The event raised $7,500 each for two organizations: Faith in the Future, which helps poor families afford a Catholic high school education for their children, and Mercy Homes, which aids young children and young adults who are mentally and emotionally impaired with housing and education.

Celebrating, picture 1, are Knights of Columbus Long Island Chapter officers Joe Marino, left, Joe Peluso, Denis O'Shea, Bertrand Derrick, Father Richard Ahlmeyer, Frank Strauch, David Crum and Lou Pepe, and picture 2, Sister Kay Crumlish, standing, director of Mercy Homes, with three volunteers.

Welcome to the discussion.
