Daniel Dromm attended the NAACP/Corona-East Elmhurst Branch's annual Freedom Fund fundraiser and scholarship luncheon held at Dante's Caterers in Jackson Heights on December 6, 2008. Dromm has been a proud, longtime, active member of the NAACP. The event was particularly poignant this year because of the election of the United States first African American president, Barack Obama. The NAACP has been in the forefront of the battle to secure equal rights for all people for almost 100 years.
