Long Island, NY - May 15, 2018 - EAC Network recently hosted its 29th Annual Golf for Good outing at Meadow Brook Club where it raised almost $164,000 to help continue its mission of empowering, assisting, and caring for at-risk children, families, and seniors in crisis across Long Island and New York City.
Christopher J. Chimeri, Founding Partner of Quatela Chimeri, PLLC, and Bob Eslick, Executive Director of Kids Helping Kids by Kids Way, Inc. were honored for their dedication and commitment to helping children and families in need. Mr. Chimeri received the Marie & Michael Gubitosi Altruist Award, and Mr. Eslick received the Steven J. Eisman Humanitarian Award, both of which memorialize long-time friends and supporters of EAC Network who also recognized the vital work being done to help those who are too often forgotten.
“We are incredibly grateful to everyone who came out to support our outing this year,” said Lance W. Elder, President & CEO of EAC Network. “With the ever-changing climate surrounding the nonprofit world, we cannot overstate our gratitude to those who continue to commit to helping us help others. We especially want to thank our lead sponsors, Quatela Chimeri, PLLC, NFP and BWD Sports & Entertainment, and the Marie & Michael Gubitosi Foundation for their generous support.”
The funds raised at Golf for Good help the areas of greatest need within EAC Network’s 70+ programs that help at-risk individuals within five program areas, including Children & Youth, Families & Communities, Behavioral Health & Criminal Justice, Seniors & the Incapacitated, and Vocational Services.
This year, special focus is being placed on the Long Island Parenting Institute (LIPI), which enhances outcomes for children by strengthening families and empowering mothers and fathers to become confident and effective parents, and Community Guardianship, which manages the personal and/or financial affairs of an individual who cannot manage for themselves due to physical injuries, mental illness, developmental disabilities, Alzheimer’s disease, or other age-related dementia.
