About the Honorees

“No person has ever been honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave” Calvin Coolidge

The MOMMAS House annual Thanks for Giving fundraising gala will honor Rose and Michael Emanuele, who are so deserving of this recognition. This year’s event will be held on Thursday, November 3, 2016 at The Carltun at Eisenhower Park and it is our hope that you will join us in acknowledging the good works of the Emanueles.


Michael Emanuele was sixteen years old when he immigrated to America. Where he immediately availed himself of its many opportunities. With a strong work ethic, he began working on foundation projects, earning his Commercial Driver’s License, becoming a Certified Diesel Mechanic, and opening his own diesel repair shop. Michael then went into the concrete industry; employed as Batcher, Dispatcher, Quality Control Engineer, and Salesman. In 1992 he became the founding President and CEO of Best Concrete Mix Corp. Michael participates as an Arbitration Board Member of the IBT Local 282 Trust Fund, and Member of the NYC Association of Concrete Producers.

Rose Emanuele has forty-seven years of experience in the concrete industry; starting as “Girl Friday” and then advancing to Bookkeeper, Jr. Accountant, Comptroller, Office Manager, and currently CFO at Best Concrete Mix Corp. In her spare time, Rose has been an Adult Education Instructor, an active member of the PTA, a Catechist and her latest involvement as the Director of the St. Francis Hospital Gift Shop.

Rose and Michael are more than a married couple who built a successful business together, they also built a loving family by adopting two children. They have firsthand experience in the mission of helpingdisadvantaged children born into unfortunate circumstances. In 2002 upon reading the MOMMAS House Mission Statement, they were immediately impressed and became active supporters. Rose and Michael take great pride in continuing to help the children of MOMMAS House who will always have a special place in their hearts.

  All proceeds of this event will go to support the programs of MOMMAS House Mother-Child Residences
