Community Chest of Port Washington To Honor Claudia Caruso Rouhana As Citizen of the Year on May 6

The Community Chest announced that it has selected Claudia Caruso Rouhana as the 2012 Citizen of the Year, for her extraordinary contributions to the Port Washington community.  She will be honored at a ceremony to be held on Monday, May 6, 2013 at 7:30 p.m., at the Port Washington Public Library.    The Community Chest’s Citizen of the Year Award recognizes “a lifetime of outstanding volunteer service on behalf of the citizens of Port Washington” and has been awarded annually since 1969.  The Citizen of the Year ceremony and reception are free and all members of the community are invited to attend.

“We are pleased to honor Claudia, an individual whose commitment to Port Washington has been so extraordinary,” said Neil Lazar, president of Community Chest.  “Claudia has always been interested in improving the quality of life for all in our Community and personifies the Community Chest’s motto of The People of Port Helping the People of Port.  We invite the Port Washington community to attend this wonderful event, honoring Claudia, on May 6th.”

Claudia Caruso Rouhana has long been an advocate for the needs of children and families. Her volunteer efforts have helped provide needed services in the fields of childcare and education to many, especially those of limited means, in both our community and Nassau County.  She has been associated with many Port Washington community organizations including several at which she was the President of the Board of Directors, including the Port Washington Education Foundation (PWEF) and the Port Washington Children’s Center.  Claudia was President of Board of Directors of the Childcare Council of Nassau County, as well as holding board positions on many PTAs when her children were in school.  Additionally, through her affiliation with the Ozymandias Fund of the Tides Foundation, for which she makes recommendations for grants, many organizations which serve these populations have received thousands of dollars to help carry out their missions.

To honor Claudia, the Community Chest will be preparing a Journal and invites all community members to support the journal.
