On Saturday, May 14th, Magee Hickey, daughter of Lawrence F. Hickey, and a reporter for CBS 2 News, along with her newscaster colleagues from New York’s television stations, two of her siblings, and other special guests, sang in a Cabaret to an audience of over 200 to raise funds for Astor’s Lawrence F. Hickey Center for Child Development in the Bronx.

Talented performers included John Elliott CBS 2; Alexis Christoforous CBS 2; Hazel Sanchez CBS 2; Cindy Hsu, CBS 2; Andrew Siff; NBC 4; and many others. Special appearances were made by Maurice Dubois, NBC 4; Otis Livingston, CBS 2; and Pablo Guzman, CBS 2.

On this wonderful afternoon, the cabaret was followed by a lovely reception where guests had the opportunity to meet Ms. Hickey and the reporters.
