Magee Hickey Honors Her Father’s Memory: An Unusual Channel 11 News Team Performs at Convent of the SacredHeart
What brings the news team together singing and dancing a la Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Fred Astaire? Why none other than red-headed, energetic, vivacious Magee Hickey, whose mother was an actress and whose father, Lawrence Hickey, was an active parent at Convent of the Sacred Heart when his daughters were students there. He was the founder of the Astor Services for Children and Families in the Bronx and Rhinebeck, N.Y.
Raising money for developmentally delayed children was always foremost on his list as it is for his grown children today. Frank Hickey, Magee’s brother, an author (his book is reviewed in this issue) and her sister also sang and danced.
In attendance was Gabe Pressman, Mr. G and other luminaries of channel 11. What a great cause and what an innovative way to do it! Lawrence Hickey, you would have been proud of the cabaret in your honor! #
