Lions Club Taste of LI

WADING RIVER, NY – On Wednesday, May 8th, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker attended the Rocky Point Lions Club 11th Annual Taste of Long Island benefit event, held at East Wind in Wading River. Proceeds from the event benefitted the Rocky Point Lions Club and its 2019 honoree, the Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe in Shoreham.

The Tesla Center, built in 1901, is the last remaining laboratory of inventor and engineer Nikola Tesla, whose accomplishments included alternating current electricity, radio, and the wireless transmission tower at Wardenclyffe. The property is now being restored by the Tesla Science Center not-for-profit organization to honor Tesla’s legacy, teach the community about its rich history, and inspire visitors to participate in science and technology.

“From raffle donations to all the amazing food and beverage vendors, I appreciate everyone who came together to create another successful Taste of Long Island event that will benefit our community,” said Legislator Anker. “I would like to thank the Rocky Point Lions Club for all of its hard work and congratulations to the Tesla Science Center for being recognized as this year’s honoree.”

The Rocky Point Lions Club was established in 1955. Dedicated to the betterment of their community, the Lions Club provides financial and medical support to community members in need, scholarships to local high school students, and equipment and services to area hospitals. Ever year the Rocky Point Lions Club hosts its Taste of Long Island event, where guests can enjoy a sampling of food and beverages from local restaurants and shops.
