Supporters of the Friends of Pelham Bay Park gathered on April 24 for a wonderful evening at the Pelham-Split Rock Golf Clubhouse. Everyone enjoyed the lovely spring weather, the tasty treats and giveaways, and especially the fun picture-taking board with summertime props provided! It was a great opportunity to honor Michael Benedetto, New York State Assembly Member; Anthony Ramirez II & Paul Ramirez, Co-founders of Mainland Media, From The Bronx, The Bronx Beer Hall & Taste of The Bronx; and Thomas X. Casey, President, Huntington Free Library. The festivities were led by special guest and emcee, Michael Max Knobbe, Executive Director, BronxNet.
