Forever Families Through Adoption, Inc. (FFTA),
 a NY and CT- authorized
adoption placement agency and resource center held its third annual gourmet food tasting and
silent auction event,
 “An Evening at Crawford Park Mansion.”
 Located in Rye Brook, FFTA hosted
the event closer to home this year and stated that the majority of donations came from local businesses
and area merchants.

FFTA’s Executive Director, Joy S. Goldstein, LCSW, ACSW, who founded the agency in 2007 with her husband and adoption attorney, Michael S. Goldstein, was
proud and appreciative of the involvement of the community and those supporting FFTA.
“Everyone says that contributions to local charities are down this year due to a slow economy, but
the commitment and generosity of local businesses has been truly amazing and has made a
difference in the success of our agency and the important work that we do.
 We couldn’t be more impressed.”
Proceeds raised from ticket sales and the silent auction will enable FFTA to expand outreach
efforts and to offer a more comprehensive range of services in the community including free
educational programming to schools, hospitals, clinics and prisons. “We pride ourselves on our
mission to raise awareness of and sensitivity to adoption while increasing access to our unique
approach and expertise,” Ms. Goldstein stated. In addition to FFTA members of the board, staff
and volunteers, also lending support to the event was notable guest, Village of Port ChesterTrustee,
Joseph Kenner.
Several local restaurants prepared enjoyable tasting dishes for the event; participants included
Rye’s Morgan’s Fish House and Ruby's Oyster Bar,
 Sonora in Port Chester, the Melting Pot in White
Plains, and Blue Moon Café in Bronxville. The Wine Gallery in Rye Brook, All Star Imports in Yonkers,
and Captain Lawrence Brewing Company in Pleasantville provided beverages, and gourmet
desserts were provided by Le Renaissance Patisserie Francaise of Scarsdale, Sweet Lisa’s of Cos
Cob, Cerbone’s in Rye Brook and Chocolations of Mamaroneck, adding to a sweet evening.
Lively music for the evening was provided by local resident Kevin Lyden and The Stanwich Four.
Additional sponsors enhancing the popular venue with finishing touches included White Plains
Linen, and Frank’s House of Flowers in Mamaroneck, who contributed eye-catching floral arrangements.

FFTA, founded and staffed by social workers, attorneys, adoptees, and adoptive parents believes
that every child eligible for permanent adoption, regardless of racial or ethnic background, age,
or physical or emotional challenge, has the right to grow up in a loving, nurturing, secure, and
forever home.
