Bouquets to Brandy Carvalho
Bouquets to Brandy Carvalho, executive director of the Nassau Humane Society, for meeting a $200,000 challenge grant from The Chardonnay Foundation. The no-kill shelter broke ground Nov. 21 for a new shelter to open next summer. In 12 weeks, the NHS raised $200,000, which was matched by the foundation grant. The shelter still needs to come up with another $500,000 to complete its capital campaign.
