"I am grateful to the PRSA-NY board and membership for their enthusiastic service in educating and sustaining our profession and community," Mr. Zlokower said. "Our Career Forum, Big Apple Awards, dynamic professional development programs and well-planned Hurricane Sandy Benefit highlighted a year of hard work and dedication by this fine organization."

PRSA-NY recently concluded a 2012 Community Outreach initiative. The chapter hosted a holiday benefit for the children of Coney Island affected by Hurricane Sandy. The chapter raised funds for Our Lady of Solace's Recreation League to replace baseball equipment lost in the flooding and provided gifts for the holiday party of the Friends of Kaiser Park. President-elect Henry Feintuch grew up in Coney Island and co-chaired the event with Mary Buhay, a PRSA-NY member and vice president, Business Development & Marketing, Gibbs& Soell.

"After the hurricane struck, and we came to understand the extent of the damage and loss suffered by New Yorkers, we decided to convert our annual holiday party into a benefit that would help lift the spirit of some of those affected," said Mr. Feintuch. "We found reputable partner organizations in Coney Island that would help deliver the gifts we contributed and the monies we raised directly to benefit Coney Island kids. Donations are still being accepted by PRSA-NY for members of our community looking to help."
