Community Table Honors Smithtown's Elegant Eating's 30th Anniversary

Smithtown Children’s Foundation 2017 Community Table Grand Tasting

November 14, 2017 / Flowerfield Celebrations, Saint James 

“Community, not charity, that is what the 2017’s Smithtown Children’s Foundation Community Table  Grand Tasting is all about”, affirms the event’s organizer and SCF advisory board member, Nancy Vallarella.  “There is no better way to bring everyone to the Community Table than to honor a person who has cooked for us and has taught us how to cook for more than fifty years.” This honor is bestowed to Myra Naseem as she and her Elegant Eating of Smithtown business partner, Neil Schumer commemorate their 30th year in business.

The Community Table brings together nearly 30 participating culinary, spirits, and entertainment businesses plus dozens more in sponsorship and donor capacities.  The funds raised are a byproduct of how people and the businesses in the community actively support each in the goal of maintaining a healthy, and vibrant community.

Smithtown Children’s Foundation Executive Board Member and Co-Founder, Christine Fitzgerald states, “Last year’s 2016 Community Table event attendance and proceeds exceeded our initial projections.  It was also the first year we partnered with Stony Brook Children’s Hospital to pay forward their efforts in supporting families in crisis”.  A portion of the event’s proceeds goes to Stony Brook Children’s Child Life Program. “We hope that this continued relationship will inspire residents in the Stony Brook/Three Village area to form a local Chapter of SCF and give those communities an additional layer of support for individuals facing crisis residing within their school districts.”

The Smithtown Children’s Foundation is a New York State 501c3 nonprofit organization and has been aiding Smithtown residents in crisis since 2008. The Foundation was honored by the Times Beacon Record News honored Smithtown Children’s Foundation in their 2016 People of the Year edition.

The Foundation is expanding with a Hauppauge chapter which has been established this year to support people in the Hauppauge area.
