“The Community Chest is an incredibly valuable organization in Port Washington, one that is helping improve the quality of life here by supporting programs for teens, seniors, adults and children,” Lazar said, in a press release. “Through one donation to the Community Chest, you are helping to fund 25 local organizations, and positively impacting one in four Port Washington residents.”
A long-time volunteer, Lazar has been active with the Port Washington Education Foundation advisory board and PYA. He has resided in Port Washington for more than 19 years, and has three children, all educated in the Port Washington public schools.
