The Guild for Exceptional Children held its annual luncheon and gift egg-stravaganza auction at Gargiulo’s Restaurant in Coney Island on March 13.

A local who’s who attended the gala, including co-chairwomen Margaret DeVincenzo, Mary Dory, and Celeste Sena, the three Standing O amigos who put the whole shebang together. Also on the receiving line and celebrating festivities were Bay Ridge civic activist and business woman Arlene Rutelo, and Paul Cassone, executive director and chief executive officer at the guild.

Our roving photog Georgine Benvenuto was on hand to capture the Kodak moments, as more than 500 attendees donned elaborate hats, cute bunny ears, and huge grins to support the event’s Easter bonnet theme. The group feasted on fabulous food, and enjoyed raffles and great prizes.

The guild helps children and adults living with developmental disabilities lead satisfying lives through residential care, educational training, jobs, and therapeutic services, and assists families in their journeys.

Standing O gives the gala a thumbs up and 10 bunny ears.

The Guild for Exceptional Children [260 68th St. between Third Avenue and Ridge Boulevard in Bay Ridge, (718) 833–6633].
