28th Annual MYP Coffeehouse— Saturday, March 10, 2018 at St. Mel’s Church, Flushing, NY By Tom Leavens

The 28th MYP Coffeehouse was held at St. Mel’s Church on Saturday, March 10th.  The theme was “Come As You Are: Music of the 90’s.”  The evening was filled with music & dance, as well as bingo and fabulous raffle prizes. Our teen performances by Shannon Kelly, Sarah Pavon, Miranda Nunez, Erin Doyle, Christopher Weinbaum & Mary Leavens were so great—it really showed the talent in our group. Team members Tom Leavens, Jean Bena, Gary McComiskey & Megan McComiskey contributed to the wonderful entertainment. As always, the talent of our MYP Band of  Marty Weinbaum, Alysoun Roach &  Vanessa Yannelli made the evening so complete. The event could not happen without the hard work of Cathy Weinbaum (decorations), John Fodera (Fodera Food’s donations), Dina DePaola (refreshments & Bingo prizes), Jennifer McComiskey (raffles & prizes), & Laurie Hallick (co-chairman & program). Big thanks & much appreciation to the McComiskey Family for sound & Ben Fabrizi for lighting, as well as Barbara Younger, Peggy (Bergin) Sementelli & Joe Leone in the kitchen. Diana Roach was truly the voice & spirit of the event with raffle drawings & MC responsibilities. Thank you for all of your love & support to make this happen!!!
