executive-estates[Update below.] 9:15 a.m.: Today, Masbia soup kitchen will present a Catskills Extravaganza at the development site of Executive-Estates on Route 55 at the corner of Water-Tower Road.

“This is a great example of a corporate partnership with a not-for-profit. Executive-Estates wanted to get the public to visit and learn about their new development, so they sponsored an event that will raise money to feed the hungry,” said Alexander Rapaport executive director of Masbia.

“We are very thankful to them, especially this time of the year when regular donations are scarce, this event will help us keep our doors open to feed those in need,” Rapaport added.
