There was a warm glow at Victory Outreach as staff, friends, and family gathered to bid a fond farewell to longtime executive director Renee Giordano of the Sunset Park Business Improvement District, where she has been selflessly serving for the past 20 years.

Renee was feted to a host of speeches, good food, and fond memories on Dec. 12, as she stepped down from her long-held position.

Attendees were all too ready to applaud Renee and discuss how her experience benefited the business improvement district, especially through trying times.

Staff posted on the BID’S Facebook page, “Thank You Renee Giordano! Congratulations on your well deserved retirement after many years of outstanding service for the assistance, guidance and outstanding leadership you’ve provided for the Sunset Park BID for so many years.”

Elected officials including Borough President Adams were also on hand to present Renee with a citation honoring her many years of service.

Additional comments posted said, “You have set an example to be followed in the future and cherished by those of us that were fortunate enough to have experienced it for ourselves.” And, “It has been an honor working for you! It was a humbling experience planning your retirement celebration along with the staff.”

Standing O wishes Renee good fortune in her retirement and future endeavors.

Sunset Park Business Improvement District [5116 Fifth Ave. at 51st Street in Sunset Park, (718) 439–7767].
