SAVE THE DATE
April 22nd Unveiling of Plaque honoring Hon. Anthony V. Cardona and Fund Raiser in Support of Albany County Family Court Children’s Center

by Margaret Vella, President, Friends of the Albany Children's Center, Inc. 

On April 22nd, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at Taste restaurant, please join the Friends as we celebrate the legacy of Judge Anthony V. Cardona's good works on behalf of children and families and recognize the outstanding public service of award recipients former Appellate Division Justice Edward O. Spain and former Albany County Family Court Judge W. Dennis Duggan.  Don’t miss the special ceremony at this event, when we will unveil a plaque in honor of Judge Cardona which will proudly and prominently be displayed this Spring at Albany County Family Court.

Judge Cardona played a pivotal role in the establishment of the Children's Center at Albany County Family Court. Having previously sat in Family Court, Judge Cardona was acutely aware of the many challenges facing families who turn to the court for help.  In June of 1995, the Albany Children’s Center opened its doors, becoming one of the first of five Centers to operate in the NYS Unified Court System.

Today, the Center serves close to a thousand children each year, providing a safe haven and nurturing environment for children while their families take care of critical court business. The Center’s service provider, Albany Community Action Partnership, is dedicated to ensuring that children are cared for by professional staff specifically trained to handle difficult issues that can arise during court proceedings, such as a change of custody, and to serve as a resource to help families in crisis.

The event will be held in Taste’s beautiful penthouse banquet room in downtown Albany (45 Beaver Street), where there will be specially prepared tastings of food and libations for your enjoyment.  Ticket prices are $75/$100/$150.  Your financial support will ensure the continuation of the Children’s Center’s valuable services.  Thank you! For additional information, please call Margaret Vella at 439-6001.
