Description

The League of Women Voters of Port Washington-Manhasset invites you to join us at our annual Fall Fundraiser Brunch featuring keynote speaker Patti Wood, Founder & Executive Director of Grassroots Environmental Education, who will be addressing local environmental issues affecting our community, including the use of gasoline-powered leaf blowers.

The sumptuous brunch includes an omelet station, carving station, sushi station, assorted salads, breads and spreads, dessert buffet, fresh fruit and more. One cocktail included (credit card bar).

The raffles will be sold $5 each. All raffles will go into one "hat," from which all names will be picked for several prizes.


Please contact Danielle Tane at (917) 488-9462 with any questions about the event.



Keynote speaker Patti Wood is founder and executive director of Grassroots Environmental Education, a not-for-profit environmental health organization. The organization uses science-driven arguments for clean air, clean water and a safe food supply and advocates for stricter regulation of non-ionizing radiation and chemical toxins. A Visiting Scholar at Adelphi University, Ms. Wood lectures on the environment and related health issues in the College of Nursing and Public Health. Ms. Wood is the co-producer of the documentary film "Our Children at Risk," which explores the latest scientific research linking environmental toxins to children's health problems. She is also the author of "The ChildSafe School," a program which promotes and provides a framework for a comprehensive approach to reducing environmental toxins in schools and "Helping to Heal," a book for parents of children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.
