Tickets are $125. per person and all donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law. Sponsorships, roasting opportunities and ads are still available!

Mr. Kominicki is an industry veteran, having previously written for and edited such publications as European Stars and Stripes, the New York Times, USA Today and the Dallas Morning News, among others. He was also named Outstanding Long Island Journalist by the Press Club of Long Island in 2008.

Mr. Kominicki also serves on a number of local boards and has been named as an Advocate for Small Business by the Small Business Administration and honored as a Distinguished Citizen by Dowling College, where he received an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters.
