12/16/2013 – The College of Staten Island (CSI) recently had a fundraising event, “An Evening with CSI”. The goal of the event was to honor two professors at CSI and also raise money to support students, programs at the college and growth.
They could not continue to grow and support all the students without outside support. One of those supporters, business professional Anthony Amado of New Jersey, attended Tuesday’s event to show support of all that CSI does.
Anthony Amado was asked why the College of Staten Island was a worthy recipient of funds. Mr. Amado stated that the teachers and creative minds that educate the youth in creative and performing arts often go unnoticed. College of Staten Island provides to the students a first class education with a touch of class. Anthony Amado stated that it was an honor to have attended Tuesday evening’s event.
The professors honored Tuesday evening were Sylvia Kahan, Professor of Music and Thomas Tellesen, Professor of Marketing and Chair of the Department of Marketing. The event was held at the Hilton Garden Inn-Above Rooftop on Staten Island.
