Turning 49 never looked so fun.
Councilman Paul Vallone celebrated his 49th birthday last week with a combo birthday party and fundraiser. Many of the big names of the Queens Democratic Party, including his father, former Council Speaker Peter Vallone, attended the shindig.
The birthday bash, hosted at Bourbon Street in Bayside, raised more than $20,000 for Vallone’s re-election. Hundreds of people, from family and friends to neighbors, contributed to the funds.
“I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart who attended my birthday celebration,” Vallone said after the party. “Every single one of you has stood with me time and time again and I am humbled by your support.”
“I have fought to reconnect a district that was too long disconnected from the rest of our city,” he added, “and will continue to ensure Northeast Queens gets their fair share.”
