community and its citizenry; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to commend
the Emerald Association of Long Island, Inc. upon the occasion of its

WHEREAS, The Emerald Association of Long Island, Inc. has a 174 year

Brooklyn, initially through the Roman Catholic Orphan Asylum Society of
Brooklyn, and later to all needy children in the Diocese of Brooklyn
since 1957; and
WHEREAS, The Emerald Association of Long Island, Inc. has the
distinction of being the charitable organization with the longest
running annual fundraising ball of any society of its kind in the United
States; and
WHEREAS, The first ball was held on February 7, 1839, at Smith's City
Hotel in Brooklyn, and the event has been held at the Waldorf Astoria
