SCO/Center for Family Life's 2014 Gala Fundraiser & Cocktail Party was a great success! The smell of chocolate led supporters through the Brooklyn Army Terminal and into the magnificent Jacques Torres Chocolate Factory, where we celebrated the spirit of entrepreneurship, leadership and community development. We honored five individuals with our “Celebrating Community” Award: Cooperatives United for Sunset Park (represented by Sara Castillo, Elvira Rojas, Yuri Sanchez, and Monica Valerio) and Jacques Torres, individuals whose success as immigrant entrepreneurs has lead our neighborhood’s economic revival and inspired its residents to believe that they, too, can “make it in Sunset Park.”
