MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- The Mount Kisco Chamber of Commerce has named Joe DiMauro, owner and operator of Mount Kisco Seafood, the 2014 Citizen of the Year and it will also honor the Mount Kisco Rotary Club as the 2014 Outstanding Non-Profit Organization of the Year.
Both will be recognized on Thursday, May 1, at the chamber’s 47th annual dinner at the Holiday Inn of Mount Kisco, One Holiday Drive.
The celebration will begin with wine and hors d’oeuvres at 6:30 p.m. followed by dinner and presentations at 7:30 p.m.
More than 150 business owners, professionals and civic-minded residents are expected to attend this annual event.
DiMauro was born and raised in the Mount Kisco area. He is a self-described “softie” when it comes to helping others in need. He is particularly devoted to supporting organizations that help battered women, children who suffer terminal illness, the hungry and fight breast cancer.
The Mount Kisco Rotary Club is celebrating its 60th anniversary committed to local, regional, national and international charities. Mount Kisco Rotary is part of Rotary International, a worldwide organization of 1.2 million business and professional leaders in 34,000 clubs that provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
“Both Joe DiMauro and The Mount Kisco Rotary serve as positive examples for action in our community,” said Caroline Loeb, the Chamber of Commerce's executive director. “The Chamber is delighted to honor them for their outstanding volunteerism and community spirit.”
The chamber is accepting raffle donations and offering advertising opportunities in a souvenir journal.
Tickets are $135 per person. A limited number of group tables are available.
