debPlease join us in congratulating Debbie Burwasser for receiving the Above and Beyond Award. This award is a great way for us to recognize and thank staff, students, volunteers, and the community who go above and beyond for the agency, helping to promote and raise needed funds for the program’s growth.

Debbie Burwasser is the parent of Genesis student, Chase, and an active member of the Genesis community. Since Chase started Genesis, Debbie has been involved with all Genesis fund-raiser and the PTO. She is always willing to volunteer her time, to serve on an event committee. Recently, Debbie was a member of the Long Island Dinner Dance committee and helped to call parents to encourage them to support the event and explain the importance of the event to Genesis. Thanks to Debbie’s efforts the Long Island Dinner Dance had 100% of all the families in the Adult Day Program contribute financially to the event and 93% of the school families contributed financially to the event. Debbie always makes the time to help wrap baskets and to help with event set up.

We are so very fortunate to have Debbie Burwasser as a part of the Eden II family. As a recipient of the Above and Beyond Award, Debbie Burwasser will be recognized on a permanent plaque on both Staten Island and Long Island.
