NYPPA Newsletter – Summer 2018

Join the New York Press Photographers Association to help colleague Dennis Van Tine who had a stroke and heart attack in July and is trying to recover in Staten Island University Medical Center. The fundraiser will occur on Tuesday, August 14, 7:00 p.m. at Jack Demsey’s Bar and Restaurant, 36 West 33rd Street in New York City. NYP Parking is right down the block.

There will be food and drink for all, and we are asking everyone to make a minimum $20 donation to help our colleague with medical bills and care he will need.

We will also want to get together with our colleagues, especially those who lost their jobs at the New York Daily News when Tronc terminated the entire photo staff of New York’s supposed “Picture Newspaper.”
