Wait, we forgot. They’re going to anyway.
The Cusumano family and employees — who feel like family –received the BTAC, which is the acronym for the Burbank Top Award for Citizenship as well as the center. There were about 360 guests sharing in the excitement at the 13th annual dinner gala on March 4 at the Castaway Starlight Room.
Master of ceremonies Michael Hastings reminded people of how fortunate they were to be sitting at their tables enjoying a wonderful dinner.
“How many of those who BTAC serves would love to be in your seats tonight?” he asked the crowd. “I think that is something you should all think about as you are here tonight. Put yourself in someone else’s seat. BTAC reaches out to those who are less fortunate.”
Trust us on this one. No one benefiting from BTAC would trade places with anyone sitting up there inside that hillside oasis. We should know.
What a disgusting, reverse-empathy bit of noblesse oblige, eh? Say hello to Pedro for us the next time you’re down there, you condescending, inappropriate, stupid sack of shit.
You have to admit though, the timing on this PR celebration is in fact quite interesting. How can we not now reward the Cusumano “Group” with everything they want?
Btw, here’s the reason why the Cusumanos didn’t want the award to go to “the Cusumano Family” this time:
We’ve pretty much done a final number on that one when it comes to PR usefulness. Or we should say, they did.
(P.S. They also don’t live in Burbank…)
