Found in an old box of family photos in the attic.

Terrific!

I most appreciate the sentiment: CHARITY SERVED WITH DISCRETION.

Any idea of the date?

Google turns up a newspaoer advert from 1922 saying they cater for weddings , receptions and banquets. Then at 1074 Fulton St, Brooklyn, NYC. Another reference notes that Brooklyn public library holds a collection of the company’s menus (along with what seems to eb a large collection of menus from other restaurants, etc)

Similar material is also part of Harvard/Radcliffe’s Schlesinger Library, whose focus on women’s achievements includes a vast collection of cookbooks and other food-related materials. https://www.radcliffe.harvard.edu/schlesinger-library/collections

Yes , there is def a brooklyn connection. Gr grandparents of my husband lived there early 1900s to 1950 or so and I think this was with a church wedding announcement. Such nice sentiments - not so common in this era.
