Win a Maserati Weekend at Suffolk's 2017 Gala


Want to spend a weekend with a sleek Italian sports car? Here’s your chance!

A weekend with a 2017 Maserati is being raffled at the Suffolk Community College Foundation’s Annual Salute to Excellence Gala, on Thursday, May 4.

The Maserati for a weekend is courtesy of Ferrari-Maserati of Long Island who has been a supporter of the Suffolk Community College Foundation’s fundraising efforts for the past four years.
“Ferrari-Maserati of Long Island is a generous and caring organization that provides financial support for the students of Suffolk County Community College,” said Sylvia A. Diaz, Ph.D., LMSW, executive director of the Suffolk Community College Foundation.  “The Maserati Weekend is perhaps the most unique raffle we’ve ever offered and our guests absolutely love the opportunity to win such a prize.  Just imagine the experience of driving around Long Island in a fine Italian sports car!  Where would you go?”

The Salute to Excellence Gala celebrating labor leader, Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, AFL-CIO and the college will be held on May 4 at the Hilton Long Island in Huntington.

“We will celebrate and recognize a great labor leader whose advocacy for education and the middle class has advanced the most important engine in creating the American Dream and a better life for each generation,” said Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay.

 “The mission of the Foundation is to reduce the economic barriers to higher education and foster student success.  The Salute to Excellence Gala is the College’s single largest event held annually to generate financial support, community awareness and most importantly make a difference in the lives of our students,” said Executive Director of the Suffolk Community College Foundation Dr. Sylvia A Diaz. The celebration will begin at 7 pm.
