Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty is raising money for the Save the Children Long Island Council.
Daniel Gale Sotheby’s Deborah Hauser and Abby Sheeline will co-chair a May 14 benefit for the Save the Children LI Council, a volunteer group that supports national nongovernmental organization. Hauser, Daniel Gale Sotheby’s marketing, and Sheeline, Daniel Gale Sotheby’s regional manager, are both also Save the Children LI Council board members.
Save the Children fights for children’s rights and supports children in developing countries.
The benefit has been dubbed “A Night at the Speakeasy” and will be hosted at The Paramount in downtown Huntington. The night will serve as a fundraiser for the council, featuring three popular Long Island bands and attendees dressed in 1920s attire.
“The outpouring of support for Save the Children demonstrated by our agents, our administrative managers and staff, and particularly by the efforts of Abby and Deb has been nothing short of amazing,” said Patricia J. Petersen, president and CEO of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s, an international real estate agency originally founded in Cold Spring Harbor.
Petersen added, “It’s a winning combination of hard work and dedication, hands-on volunteerism and generous donations of money and raffle prizes.”
As co-chairs of the event, Hauser and Sheeline have worked to develop the theme, secure the venue, hire the bands, solicit raffle items and design the evening’s menu, and other tasks. More than a dozen members of the Daniel Gale Sotheby’s organization are also helping as part of a benefit committee.
Tina McGowan and Kim Como are chairing the silent auction, with Jeanne Leonard and Dan Bauer chairing the live auction. Other volunteers include Diane Anderson, Maria Boccard, Tom Calabrese, Katherine Cirelli, Allison Conte, Kate Cronin, Pam Doyle, John Haines, Margy Hargraves, Donna Madden, Deirdre O’Connell, Susan Poli, Margaret Trautmann, Bonnie Williamson and Ellen Zipes.
The bands set to play during the benefit are Sands Point, Run 4 Covers and The Rumble. The Paramount is located at 370 New York Ave. in Huntington. The benefit will run 7-10 p.m.
