QUEENS CENTERS FOR PROGRESS SUMMER OF ’69 GALA 17
We salute QCP for paying homage to "our" Ed Charles at their "Summer of ‘69"
annual Gala. Indeed they are highlighting the 50th Anniversary of the New York
Mets Championship of which Ed was 3rd baseman, as well as other notable events
in 1969 and recognizing deserving honorees.
Ed was a friend, supporter and cheerleader of QCP. Their mission, dedication and
commitment to the Queens community, and in particular the youth in their
Children's Center and adults in the Day Habilitation program, motivated and
inspired Ed. He was rewarded and fulfilled by his service to the organization and
he wished he could have done more.
He was our anchor and we truly miss him. The memories of his life, legacy and
family togetherness help us cope. He celebrates with you tonight and wishes you
continued success. We thank you and appreciate your fond memories of dear Ed .
Congratulations and kudos to all the honorees!
Ed, Jr. and Tomika Charles
