Peninsula Counseling Center Executive Director Lois Goldsmith, center, and Board of Directors President Steve Bernstein accepted the Special Recognition Award from Gyulay.

Chamber President Debbi Gyulay spoke highly of PCC. She said the agency joined the Chamber shortly after moving into Valley Stream and has taken advantage of the networking possibilities that membership provides.

PCC’s liaison to the Chamber of Commerce is Audrey Goodman, who was unable to attend the dinner. Accepting the award were Executive Director Lois Goldsmith and President of the Board of Directors Steve Bernstein.

“Under their leadership, PCC heads into its second century continuing a history of help and healing for those in need of mental health services,” Gyulay said.

“Being around for 100 years is a tremendous accomplishment in an of itself, none of us have ever done that,” she added, “but being a non-profit organization that helps people in need makes that accomplishment even more special.”

Goldsmith said that she appreciates the support the Valley Stream community has shown PCC, and she hopes the agency has provided the same support in return. On Oct. 21, PCC will celebrate its 100th anniversary with it’s a Tasteful Evening fundraiser at the Woodmere Club.

Minerva noted there was a connection between the two award recipients, as TD Bank’s Anderson serves on PCC’s Board of Directors.

Also at the gala, the Chamber’s slate of officers was installed. Gyulay began her fourth term as president. The other officers are Elliott Rosenbaum as executive vice president, Jules Rabin as vice president, Lisa Norwich as secretary and Jaime Grasso as the new treasurer. Elected by Chamber membership in June, their terms are for two years.
