Nassau County Legislator Joshua Lafazan (D – Woodbury) recently supported the Long Island Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence at their 36th annual Adele C. Smithers Angel Ball at Oheka Castle in Huntington.

At the Thursday, June 22 event, which raised awareness and funds for drug intervention and prevention programs on Long Island, LICADD presented its 2023 Founders Award to Michael J. Brennan, and its Humanitarian Award to John Polsinelli and the Polsinelli family.

Lafazan, a LICADD board member, presented the honorees with a Nassau County Legislature Citation in recognition of their contributions to the cause of promoting recovery.

“As Nassau County and our entire nation continue to grapple with the devastation wrought by the opioid drug crisis, the work of organizations like LICADD becomes more impactful and essential than ever before,” Lafazan said. “The success of their Angel Ball will equip LICADD to further amplify their life-saving efforts to prevent substance abuse, provide addiction treatment, and encourage the pursuit of recovery – and we are all gratified to Michael Brennan, the Polsinelli family, and all of LICADD’s supporters for making this possible.”
