LGBTQ organization supports Adelphi Breast Cancer Program

The Imperial Court of New York, celebrating 31 years of service to the LGBTQ community, presented an award of $10,850 at their 32nd Annual Night of a Thousand Gowns gala to the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program, located in Garden City.

Receiving the funds was Cheryl Posilico, a masters level social work intern who lives in Rockville Centre. She is joined by an attendee at the event.

This is the third grant that the Adelphi Program has received from the Imperial Court. Keyth Atiles, vice president of the board of directors, said that this yearly grant is given in honor of a breast cancer survivor who is the sister of Imperial Court members Kevin and Kerry Wisher of Bay Shore.

“We are so very appreciative of the generosity of the Imperial Court which helps supports our many free services to those diagnosed with breast cancer,” says Hillary Rutter, the executive director of the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program
