Prager Metis Beings Corporate Partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association - Team contributes over $50,000 in the first year
New York, NY— Prager Metis CPAs, LLC, is proud to announce a successful start to our corporate partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association.
The Alzheimer’s disease hits home for those of Prager Metis, as it directly affects many of our team members loved ones including both co-Managing Partners, Glenn Friedman and David Neste, who both lost their father’s to the disease this past spring.
Co-Managing Partner, David Neste on the starting of the partnership: “We knew from day one we wanted our firm to support a cause, the Alzheimer’s Association was a perfect fit and working with them has been an honor.”
This past fall Prager Metis kicked off the partnership by having teams walk in the regional “Walk to End Alzheimer’s.” Prager Metis represented in the Long Island, Manhattan, New Jersey, and Los Angeles walks, raising over $50,000 in whole.
Co-Managing Partner, Glenn Friedman stated “Partnering with the Alzheimer’s Association has been an incredible, our Prager Metis team members all coming together to bring us one step further to finding a cure to this disease. We look forward to what the future has in store”.
The Alzheimer’s Association holds another annual fundraising event the first day of summer called the “Longest Day,” all of our offices including our London location will be participating.
The Alzheimer’s Association works on a global, national and local level to enhance care and support for all those affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementias. They are the largest nonprofit funder of Alzheimer's research, the Association is committed to accelerating the global progress of new treatments, preventions and ultimately, a cure. Back in 1979, Jerome H. Stone and representatives from several family support groups met with the National Institute on Aging to explore the value of a national, independent, nonprofit organization to complement federal efforts surrounding Alzheimer's disease. That meeting resulted in the April 10, 1980, formation of the Alzheimer's Association with Mr. Stone as founding president.
Today the Association reaches millions of people affected by the disease worldwide.
