Building a Long Island Resource/ Thanks!!! :)

As 2011 comes to a close; we think back to July 2007 when & had one logo on the site; and a 'Coming Soon' banner!!!  Our goal, from the beginning was/ is to build a quality business/ community resource. The first call was to Patrcia Schissel, AHANY - . When it comes to Autism, Asperger Syndrome, AHANY is a good as it gets when it comes to dispersing quality information!!! The next call was to Stephanie Mastrianni - United Breast Cancer Foundation - . Stephanie said she'd give us a chance. Happy to say, four and a half years later, we're still working with Patricia & Stephanie!!! :)

Thanks to the support of the Long Island Business Community, in addition to being a quality resource for information, products and services; & works to ignite business and help raise awareness/ collect supplies for charities across Long Island. It’s been an incredible combination of community and commerce!!! Thanks to our sponsors for making it possible!!! :)
