September 4th, 2019
Helen Keller Services (HKS) will hold its 40th Annual Gala on September 26th, 2019, at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden with Investors Bank President and Chief Operating Officer Domenick A. Cama serving as honoree. Longtime HKS friend and five-time Emmy Award winner Amy Freeze of Channel 7’s Eyewitness News will return as Master of Ceremonies. The announcement was made by HKS’ new President and CEO Kim Zimmer.
“I’m delighted that my first gala with Helen Keller Services will be such a special event,” observed Zimmer, who was named HKS President and CEO in June 2019 after serving as Chief Marketing Officer & Senior Vice President, Global Development, at Goodwill Industries International. “Honoree Domenick Cama is a devoted supporter of Helen Keller Services who brings to the gala his passion for service and impressive standing in the world of finance. We are also thrilled to have local television legend Amy Freeze as our Master of Ceremonies. I know she’ll set just the right tone for the evening with her good humor, grace, and charm. Finally, the gala will be held at a much-loved destination, the spectacular Brooklyn Botanic Garden. The evening ensures a true celebration to reflect on Helen Keller Services and its many achievements.”
“I am honored to be named a Helen Keller Services Gala Honoree,” stated Cama. “Helen Keller Services works tirelessly to ensure inclusion for individuals who are blind, visually-impaired, or who have a combined hearing and vision loss. In fact, Helen Keller Services goes beyond inclusion to enable these individuals to not just live and work in their chosen communities, but to thrive! I am proud to support Helen Keller Services as an organization. They make a significant contribution to our local and national communities.”
In addition to serving as President and Chief Operating Officer of Investors Bancorp and Investors Bank, Cama serves on the Board of Directors of both organizations and works closely with other members of the executive management team to manage the Bank’s daily operations. Brooklyn born and raised, Cama has generously supported the not-for-profit community and has received numerous honors for his service, including induction into the Italian American National Hall of Fame; Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters from St. Francis College in Brooklyn; the Good Scout Award by the Greater New York Council of Boy Scouts; and Honoree at The Cathedral Club of Brooklyn’s Annual Gala earlier this year.
