Last night was a super special evening in so many ways. My Aunt Lyn Jurick was the Honoree at the 25th Anniversary Gala of the 100th Ronald McDonald House. The Gala was held at Citi Field in Flushing last night and the event celebrated the vision and determination of Lyn’s tirelesss humanitarian efforts. I’m so proud of her for all that she has given back.
Lyn was the first President of the Ronald McDonald House in Long Island, First Humanitarian Award Winner of the Five Towns United Way of Long Island, Long Island Volunteer Hall of Fame Inductee, Trustee of the North Shore LIJ Health System, Trustee of the Board for the Boca Raton Regional Hospital, and so much more worthy causes during the course of her career.
So on this night where our family had gathered to celebrate with Aunt Lyn, my cousin Alix got engaged 1 hour before gala showtime at Cit Field! We surprised her with photo and video of her entire engagement. Here fiance’ Paul is one smooth operator and made Alix’s dream come true with a grand design of a proposal taking advantage of the magic of Citi Field.
