Award breakfast honors those who help the disabled
Hundreds of people gathered in Tarrytown this morning for the 23rd annual awards breakfast hosted by the Institute of Applied Human Dynamics (IAHD), honoring people who make a difference in the lives of the developmentally disabled.
Former New York State Assemblyman Ronald Tocci was among those recognized for his service to IAHD. He says it's a privilege to participate in such a worthy cause.
The Harrison Police Association was also saluted for its work in bringing gifts and cheers every holiday season to the people who come to IAHD.
"To receive an honor on this stage, we really appreciate it," says John Carney, of the Harrison Police Association.
Officials at IAHD say honorees are recommended by people in the community, as well as by members of their own corporate board of directors.
