The news story “Women of distinction to be feted at event” [Jan. 28] reported that Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano will honor extraordinary women for Women’s History Month on March 10. Money raised will benefit the Nassau County SPCA.

That the proceeds will not go to an organization that helps women is very disappointing. As a member of the Zonta Club of Long Island, I’m aware of many women and families who could use financial support.
