During this event Natalia Paruz, the youngest of the honorees, entertained the guests by playing 'America the Beautiful' and two pieces by Queens composer Scott Munson, on the musical saw.
Senator Serphin R. Maltese, Senator, Queens County, requested local civic and community leaders and residents to nominate
women whose hard work and determination have made outstanding contributions to Queens and even beyond. Nominees either
contributed to their local community, excelled in the world of business or academics, performed a heroic or selfless act or
made significant accomplishments against difficult odds.
