Ronald McDonald House honors Mark Weprin

The Business Advisory Committee (BAC) at The Ronald McDonald House of Long Island, located in Queens County, hosted its annual networking event with a slightly different purpose - the nearly 100 businessmen and women from all over Long Island and Queens gathered to honor Assemblyman Mark Weprin for his generous support of the house.
All in attendance took part in a social evening that enabled business leaders to interact and learn about the House; attendees also had the opportunity to take a tour of the House, provided by knowledgeable volunteers.
Assemblyman Weprin was recognized for his outstanding support in a presentation that included speeches by several business people of the community, as well as members of the Board of Directors. Assemblyman Weprin spoke about his own experience with the House and its value.
“The Ronald McDonald House provides a tremendous service to our community by helping families when they need it most,” Assemblyman Weprin said. “It means all the difference to a parent to be close by when a child is sick.”
The Ronald McDonald House of Queens is a home-away-from-home for families of seriously ill children undergoing medicaltreatment in area hospitals.
