The Samuel J. Tilden Democratic Club held its annual Toys for Tots Brunch on Sunday December 4, 2005 at the Cottage Restaurant on 16th St. and Irving Place. Over 100 people attended the event. It is a two-fold event: to thank the Tilden members for their hard work all year round and to give $1500 to the Children at Bellevue, to make the holidays a little brighter for needy children who are hospitalized during this festive time of year.
The brunch was also well represented by our Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, our newly elected Council Members Daniel Garodnick and Rosie Mendez, our new Civil Court Judge, Tanya Kennedy, all three candidates for the Assembly – Don Tobias, Steve Kaufman and Sylvia Friedman.
At the brunch, we also celebrated our December birthday guests, including former Club President, Jay Dankberg and Amelia and Lilly Smollens, daughters of District Leader Steven Smollens.
We take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy holiday season and lots of good health and peace in the New Year. We can be reached at 212-228-5980.
