Three cheers to the movers, shakers, and business owners on Sheepshead Bay Road for making the road a brightly lit boulevard to travel this past holiday season. The Sheepshead Bay Merchants Association, along with Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz (D-Sheepshead Bay) and the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce held a reception on Dec. 20 at the KarVer Cafe honoring those businesses that participated in the Holiday Lights Drive that made the twinkle possible.
Citations were presented by Assemblyman Cymbrowitz and Andrew Horan, president of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce to Slava Viktorenkov of Emmons Place, as well as others. The rep said, “I joined members of the Sheepshead Bay Merchants Association, Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce President Andrew Hoan and Dr. Reza Fakhari, vice president for Workforce Development and Strategic Community Partnerships at Kingsborough Community College to formally thank the business owners who sponsored the 2017 Sheepshead Bay Holiday Lights Display.” He added, “Many thanks to this year’s generous sponsors, all of whom received New York State Assembly Citations: Anatolian Gyro, Sterling National Bank, Wheeler’s Restaurant, Avalon Bay Brooklyn, Belarussian Xata, Gothic Press, Infinite Auto Leasing, Jimmy’s Famous Heros, KarVér, Life Made A Little Easier, Luda’s Dumplings, Monica’s Bridal, Liquor Stop, Arbuz Café, Coffee Spot Café, Orso Café, Prime Boutique, Emmons Palace, and Opera Café & Lounge.
