T.E.A.L Walk Honoring Dana Gordon

Date and Time: September 8
Location: Prospect Park

Chapter members will honor Dana Gordon, a friend and valued SLA-NY member and the News Division, who died of cancer in 2012, at the annual T.E.A.L. walk/run on Saturday, Sept. 8 in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. When registering, please join the TEAMFORDANA. Steve Dzik, Dana’s husband, will join us.
