Long-time Queens, NY Dentist, Dr. Shilpa Trivedi and her staff are well known for their support of activities to assist their community and fellow man. They have sponsored and supported the Kissena Park Civic Association’s annual Kissena Park Art Competition for the 3rd year in a row this summer.
In its 4th year, the Kissena Park Civic Association’s Art Competition in Kissena Park has grown from 48 contestants to about 200. Participants are in 3 age groups from 2 years old and up (this year a 2½ year-old won Honorable Mention for her artwork in her category!). Participants bring their pencils, paints and pens and their families, and spend a few hours around beautiful Kissena Lake creating artwork on the topic announced (something to do with the park). Meanwhile, the swans and turtles enjoy their life in the lake, families walk and play, pets are walked, and many simply rest under the beautiful arching trees under the blue sky.
Preferred Dental Care supports this activity with donations for the prizes and also by handing out goody bags to all participants in the event at their table. Other local businesses also participate with goodies – including Ikea, Walgreens and others.
The artistic entries were then judged and prizes were awarded. The artwork was quite stunning in its creativity and beauty! PDC’s own Marketing Designer, Carmen Melendez, joined as a participant and won a prize for her portrayal of the park in a cartoon style. Go Carmen!
The event was attended and prizes were awarded by: US Representative Grace Meng (D-Flushing), Assemblywoman Nily Rozic (D – Fresh Meadows) and Senator Tony Avela (D – Bayside, College Point)! Members of the Kissena Park Civic Association also joined in the fun.
Dr. Shilpa Trivedi, owner of Preferred Dental Care and long time local resident, said “My team and I are very proud to support this community activity. We support many humanitarian activities all over the world, including literacy programs, human rights, drug education, and others. I guess we just love to help. But Kissena Park is especially dear to me as it has provided a beautiful place where my family and I have spent many hours strolling around the lake, playing, walking the dog and meeting neighbors. I strongly believe that art must be encouraged and supported. Every great vision was dreamed by an artist, and they bring us beauty and inspiration.”
