Kitchen Dealership Assists Charity

NORTH SALEM, NY — Bilotta Kitchens, a high-end kitchen and bath dealership based here, once again hosted an event aimed at raising money for an organization that offers financial and emotional support to New York-area families of children stricken with life-threatening diseases.

The charitable event, conducted in November, took place at a nearby horse farm, and aided the Westchester-based Friends of Karen, Inc., said Bilotta Kitchens, which operates five showrooms in the area around New York City.

The company, which has supported the Friends of Karen for the past 10 years, has helped raise more than $500,000 for the charity. The November 2005 event was the fifth fundraiser. Sponsors included Wood-Mode Custom Cabinetry, Kohler Co., Best Plumbing and Goldman Associates.
