Cradle Beach - 8038 Old Lakeshore Road, Angola NY

Our 2024 Presidents Vienna Laurendi's Charity  is  Cradle Beach.  Cradle Beach unites individuals and families, with a focus on empowering children with special needs and the underserved to become their best selves. They create opportunities for life-changing experiences in a safe and inclusive environment.

Cradle Beach is a place where all children can play, learn and grow. They serve children ages 8-16 years old with and without disabilities. Their long standing mission focuses on inclusion by providing opportunities for children with disabilities and from disadvantaged backgrounds.   

BNAR President Vienna Laurendi, Presidential Advisor Carmen Laurendi, 
 Chief Executive Officer John Leonardi, Doreen Fahey and Debbie Norman had the pleasure of touring Cradle Beach and meeting with their staff.

We will be supporting Cradle Beach through education and outreach as well as raising funds and participating in their fundraisers.
