East New York State Committeewoman, Nikki Lucas (District Leader), has joined the Healthy NYC Expo, presented by ShopRite, which is set for Saturday November 4, 2017 at the Brooklyn Sports Club in East New York, Brooklyn.
The Healthy NYC Expo is a full day of healthy living events, activities and panel discussions for the entire family. Lucas, who works closely with the seniors of East Brooklyn, will be partnering specifically on the ‘Senior Center Square’ portion of the event, which is dedicated to the seniors.
Lucas stated, “I am excited to be a partner in the Healthy NYC Expo. It’s great that the organizers decided to launch the expo in my district of East New York. Although the event is open to everyone, I think it’s wonderful that they have an entire section dedicated to the senior population. I totally support the idea of bringing healthy living resources into East New York. My goal is to connect with all of the seniors and senior centers to make sure they come out to enjoy the giveaways. health screenings, zumba, cooking demonstrations and panel discussions. And I know they’re going to love the free fruit smoothies.” (Nikki Lucas pictured with Congressman Hakeem Jeffries and Brooklyn DA Eric Gonzalez at the Easter Hat Pageant)
Other ’Senior Center Square’ partners include AlphaCare by Magellan, Dept of Aging, Dept of Finance, Access-A-Ride, and many others.
Vernon Jones Sr, CEO of JIG Media (owners of the Healthy NYC Expo), stated “We are happy to have Nikki Lucas on board with us at this event. Her work within the East New York community has been wonderful. I saw how closely she worked with the seniors to put together the Easter Luncheon and Hat Pageant, and that is what prompted us to call her to ask if she wanted to partner with us on this event. Nikki genuinely supports the senior population in East Brooklyn.”
Besides the ‘Senior Center Square’, the Healthy NYC Expo will have activities for the entire family, including a 90’s hip hop spin class, Lauren Hill inspired yoga, Zumba, health screenings, cooking demonstrations, a panel discussion on Mental Health Awareness, fresh fruit smoothies, giveaways and more.
