New York Families for Autistic Children held its 16th Annual Dinner Dance and Awards Celebration last Thursday night at Russo’s On The Bay. More than 100 people attended for dinner, dancing, raffle prizes and to honor the award recipients. It was the first dinner dance since NYFAC officially opened their new headquarters at 164-14 Cross Bay Blvd. last April. Among those honored were Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder (D-Rockaway Park) with the Guardian Angel Award and Angelo and Annmarie Gurino with the Humanitarian Award.
