Nassau County Legislator Joshua Lafazan congratulates Donna Schlessinger on receiving the Sid Jacobson Jewish Community Center’s Yellow Rose Friendship Circle Luncheon Award.

Schlessinger, the first Yellow Rose Society Co-Chair, has an extensive history of raising significant funds to help seniors suffering from neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

“I am proud to call Donna Schlessinger my constituent, and lucky to call her my friend,” Lafazan said. “Donna epitomizes the phrase, ‘When you want something done, ask a busy woman.’ From founding a small business, to raising two kids, to her work in digital marketing, to her years of philanthropic achievement, Donna represents the very best of us here in Nassau County, and I was thrilled to honor her today.”

Schlessinger, the founder and creative force behind Mutt Media NY LLC, a graphic and web design firm specializing in social media and email marketing for small business, is the original chair of Sid Jacobson’s Yellow Rose Society.

She previously served as chair of the Friendship Circle Luncheon Committee. A resident of Muttontown, she is also the Creative Director of Schlessinger Eye and Face in Woodbury, spearheading all marketing endeavors.
