Social Scene: Italian American Society chooses board

Laces of Love co-founder and president, Jeanne Nealon, with Joyce Imbrogno, member and organizer for the IAS, show the 75 sneakers along with a $200 donation that were donated at the meeting to the delight of the membership. Twice a year, Joyce Imbrogno asks members to bring new sneakers for the non-profit and is always happy with the response.
