142 years of helping families in need

The Brooklyn Bureau of Community Service — one of Brooklyn’s first and largest providers of social services to 13,000 disadvantaged children, families and adults with disabilities — will celebrate its 142nd anniversary and honor “The New York Times Neediest Cases Fund” at its annual fundraising event, June 25 at Stage 6 at Steiner Studios, 15 Washington Avenue in Brooklyn, 6-9 p.m.

The 142nd anniversary event will celebrate the Brooklyn Bureau’s 96-year partnership with The New York Times Neediest Cases Fund. Jack Rosenthal, President of the New York Times Company Foundation, will present remarks for the evening. The Honorable Marty Markowitz, Brooklyn Borough President, and his wife, Jamie Markowitz, will serve as honorary chairs of the event, and Jesse Blumberg, artistic director of the Five-Boroughs Music Festival, will serve as master of ceremonies.

The Brooklyn Bureau’s annual anniversary celebration is its primary fundraising event, and the proceeds from 142nd anniversary gathering will sustain its many vital community programs and services that benefit thousands each year — including day care and afterschool programs, vocational and educational preparation for emotionally disturbed teens, family counseling and preservation, job training and placement for individuals with disabilities and shelter services for homeless women with mental illness.
