Long Island Citizens for Community Values (LICCV) hosted a garden party last Saturday to launch their annual fundraiser, the Bloomingdale’s Benefit Shopping Day at Backyard Master’s Patio Showroom in Farmingdale New York. It was a Victorian theme and the ladies all looked fabulous in beautiful colors, hats, gloves and pearls. Backyard Masters was the perfect backdrop for a garden party, providing just the right ambiance with beautiful pools, spas, gazebos, fountains with flowing water and tropical plants.
A number of persons were honored for their contribution to LICCV: Gary Melius owner of Oheka castle, the French-style chateau and the second-largest private residence ever built in the USA.
Dean and Sherry Salvani, owners of Backyard Masters, the patio experts that offer an assortment of American-made, high quality, pools, and the Long Island Teen Challenge Ladies Home.
The LICCV is an alliance of concerned citizens with businesses, religious and health care organizations to protect children, families and the community from the harmful effects of pornography and sexualized culture. The Department of Justice found that one in three females and one in seven males will be sexually molested by age 18.
The Attorney General’s Commission on Pornography recent report of July 2010, found that ’pornography is often used by pedophiles to softens children’s defenses against sexual exploitation. They are shown nude pictures of adults, for example, and told, “See, this is what mommies and daddies do.” They are then stripped of innocence and subjected to brutalities that will be remembered for a lifetime’
