T.E.A.L.® was the lucky first-place winner of the Building a Better Brooklyn contest, an online competition that saw three charities seek to rack up votes from supporters. T.E.A.L.® legacy board member Phyllis Bellocchio and CEO Pamela Esposito-Amery accepted a check for $1,500 at Bay Ridge Toyota on Sixth Avenue in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, on February 7.
T.E.A.L.® was chosen as one of three nonprofits to be featured in the contest. Staff members filmed three short videos to run across Bay Ridge Toyota’s social media channels from September to December — and urged followers to vote. Thank you to all T.E.A.L.® supporters for getting us to first place, and thank you Bay Ridge Toyota!
