The For the Kids Foundation held its 22nd annual Gala, themed “Sunset on the Bay,” on April 6 at Land's End in Sayville. For this year’s event, replete with the traditional raffles and fine dining, the honorees were Timber Point teacher Teresa Frisina and high school teacher Bridget Lopiccolo, both recognized as Educator Advocates of the Year, and Suffolk County Legislator Tom Cilmi, recognized as Community Advocate of the Year.

The Gala serves as FTK’s primary fundraising event. Since its formation, the organization has donated well over $1 million for educational programs and resources to benefit East Islip’s students.
