Rosedale, NY (November 9, 2017) — On Sunday November 19th, Pa-Nash Eurosoul Restaurant and Lounge will host its 4th Annual Black Tie Gala at 144-14 243rd Rosedale NY 11422.
A large portion of the proceeds from the event will be given to the Alexander Youth Etiquette Success, Inc. program.
This year, the event includes keynote speaker Vera Moore of Vera Moore Cosmetics, and guest speaker, Deputy Queens Borough President Melva Miller. The first group of youth participants will be recognized and presented welcome packets for the program.
Alexander Y.E.S. was founded by Annette Runcie, co-owner of Pa-Nash Restaurant. As a business owner in Rosedale NY, Ms. Runcie wanted to find a way to give back to her local community and made a commitment to start the organization.
Ms. Runcie stated “When I saw the behavior and attitudes of the youth, I decided to do what my parents would have done and be a part of the solution instead of just complaining.”
Established as an official 501c3 in 2016, Alexander Y.E.S. provides young men and women, starting their freshman year of high school, positive influences and professional skills so they are productive, thriving participants in their community.
“I don’t know what career I want right now, but I feel that Alexander Y.E.S. will help me to determine that” said Sarah, one of the youth participants in Alexander Y.E.S.
The Black Tie Gala is a way for business owners and residents in the community to donate and support this well needed program. The evening will feature cocktails, 3 course meal, music and entertainment with inspirational remarks from keynote speakers and other special guests. With Pa-Nash’s participation, and support of the community, Alexander Y.E.S. will serve 12 students every year with on-site programs, field trips, internships, mentorship and scholarships, right in Southeast Queens.
