Below is a brief summary of Helen Zagaro's outstanding accomplishments:
Helen is the first generation daughter of two Cuban parents. Though she spent much of her childhood sheltered from the challenges her family faced under the communist rule of Fidel Castro, her parents recognized that though they would never deny or sacrifice their cultural roots, for the benefit of their two daughters, they would need to do whatever it took to immigrate to America.
Like many of the immigrants of the time- they believed that their new home-America, would be the land of opportunity and the rewards of hard work and determination would find their just reward.
Helen Zagaro is the president and founder of StarPromoz, a nationally recognized promotional marketing company that specializes in marketing a company's brand through innovative merchandise. Being a true devotee of the power of brand loyalty, Helen created Schwaggy, her "Brand-it Bandit" who expresses the fun of swag (giveaways) and the ingenious spirit of Helen herself. www.starpromoz.com 516-459-5376 firstname.lastname@example.org

When & Where
Long Island's Champions for Familes benefits RotaCare!
RotaCare: Free Health Care for People in Need
Founded in 1992 by members of the Mineola‐Garden City Rotary Club, RotaCare was created to serve the needs of the uninsured on Long Island. It began when a group of concerned volunteers met at the Mary Brennan Interfaith Nutrition Network in Hempstead. Many of these volunteers recognized that in addition to food, the medical needs of their clients were not met adequately by the healthcare system. Through the collaborative efforts of the Rotary Club, local healthcare professionals, area residents, and Mercy Hospital, a “MASH” team was formed to operate weekly at the soup kitchen. RotaCare was born. Since its inception, RotaCare has remained a Rotary District project and supported by concerned companies, organizations and individuals to sustain its good works and benefits to the community by providing free health care to people in need. In 2007, RotaCare expanded its scope again, and moved to larger quarters at the A. Holly Patterson Extended Family Care Facility in Uniondale.
