OIC New Britain Hosts Annual Awards Reception May 31, 2012

If you have enjoyed the many awards banquets that OIC New Britain has hosted in the past at the Aqua Turf, you are in for a real treat as OIC celebrates 41 years of service to the New Britain community with its first annual awards reception to be held on site at the OIC office, 114 North Street, New Britain.  

The event will begin at 5:00 p.m. with social networking and the awards celebration will begin at 6:00 p.m.   A special selection of hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, cash bar and special treats for our sponsors will be available at this unique gala event.  

Board members, Rachel Young, Assistant Principal at Roosevelt Middle School and George Springer, Jr., Attorney at Rogin Nassau, LLC are the Committee Chairpersons for this year’s awards reception.   OIC New Britain will recognize a long time business partner, Dattco Inc. who will receive the highest award, the Leon Howard Sullivan Award.  

This year’s recipient of the Angelo Tomasso, Jr. Community Award is John Geragosian, former State Legislator and long time friend of OIC.  The recipient of the OIC Essence Award is Michael Foran, Principal of New Britain High School, winner of the Principal of the Year Award and former OIC board member. 

The theme for this year’s awards reception is “Building and Sustaining Quality Relationships”.  The Honorary Co-Chairpersons are Ronald, Jason and Nicholas Jakubowski.  This father and sons team will enlighten the audience, as Ron, a long time supporter and friend of OIC is retiring from the New Britain Consolidated School District.

This is an evening you won’t want to miss; many will be in attendance.  Music will be provided by Henry “Hank” Bentley. 

If you would like to provide a sponsorship and/or purchase a ticket for the event, call OIC to reserve your space.  Donation is $40.00 per person.  OIC’s phone number is (860) 224-7151.
