Dion Raptis and Ryan Keough, the general manager and chef of Spuntino Wine Bar and Italian Tapas, presented a check for $743.00 to the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program. Throughout
August the restaurant, which is located at The Gallery at Westbury Plaza in Garden City, ran a fundraiser where $1 from every glass of rose sold and $4 from every bottle of rose was set aside for the breast cancer program. “The staff was really behind it,” says Raptis. “It’s local, the money stays here and the cause is amazing. It’s not too hard to sell. Our company has a desire to be involved with our community.” This is the third year the restaurant has supported the breast cancer hotline. “This was the best year yet,” says the chef. “It has gained momentum and is getting better and better.”
Accepting the check were Hillary Rutter, the director of the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program, and Roz Catena, of Westbury, a hotline volunteer. Says Rutter, “Wonderful efforts like this help us to provide the support that our callers need and we are very appreciative.”
The Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program, established in 1980, is a project of the Adelphi University School of Social Work. To reach the hotline, call 800-877- 8077. You are not alone.
