Congratulations to the 2016 Social Justice Leadership Award recipients: Eric Alexander, Esther Fortunoff, Patricia Shih & Stephen Fricker, and to our Young Activist Grant Award Winner, Matthew Berman.

What a wonderful evening! The dinner was held on March 31st at the Nassau County Bar Association. Longtime member Ken Feifer was the emcee and Kelly Schmidt provided the perfect instrumental ambiance during cocktail hour and dinner.

After the awards, we were treated to a brief performance by Pat and Stephen to round out the night. We thank all the honorees for their commitment to helping those less fortunate, to giving back to their community and to making the world a better place.

Thanks also to the attendees, sponsors, advertisers and hardworking staff at the Nassau County Bar Association.

    To everyone at the Ethical Humanist Society of Long Island,

    Thank you so much for this fabulous award. Stephen and I are humbled and honored to receive it, and to be in the company of such uber-deserving folks as Eric Alexander, Esther Fortunoff and Matthew Berman. The whole evening was fun and delightful, the food delicious, the room festive and beautiful with the lovely flowers, the speeches endearing and the MC perfect! We are still on Cloud 9 and treasure our long happy relationship with the EHS and look forward to many more years of it!
