Local Family Honors "Pop Pop" with LIAF Donation

The Hannan Family

Three Manhasset children decided to forego birthday presents this year to help the Long Island Alzheimer’s Foundation (LIAF) in Port Washington, N.Y. In lieu of gifts, Elizabeth, age 16; Jack, age 14; and Catherine Rose, age 9, Hannan requested that donations be made to LIAF in honor of William Hannan, their beloved “Pop Pop,” who passed away in April from complications of Alzheimer’s disease. He was a retired New York City detective. Together, the Hannan children raised $1,675 for LIAF.
