Prager Metis enhances Corporate Partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association
Team contributes over USD 120,000 in the second year
Prager Metis CPAs, LLC, is proud to announce the successful continuation of our corporate partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association. In 2017, Prager Metis International helped raise over USD 120,000 for the Alzheimer's Association.
Alzheimer’s disease hits home for those of Prager Metis, as it directly affects many of our team members’ loved ones including co-Managing Partners, Glenn Friedman and David Neste, who both lost their fathers to the disease this past spring.
On the beginning of the partnership, Co-Managing Partner David Neste had this to say: ‘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 honour.’
The partnership began in the Autumn of 2016 and continued in 2017. In June, Prager Metis participated in ‘The Longest Day’, where all of our offices participated with AC\DC karaoke parties in each office as well as ‘Spin for a Cure’ and a Chess Exhibition to raise awareness and funds. This past autumn Prager Metis continued the partnership by having teams walk in the regional ‘Walk to End Alzheimer’s’. Prager Metis was represented in the Manhattan, Long Island NY, New Jersey, Los Angeles, Miami and Westchester, NY walks, raising over USD 120,000 for 2017.
Co-Managing Partner, Glenn Friedman, stated, ‘Partnering with the Alzheimer’s Association has been 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 works on a global, national and local level to enhance care and support for all those affected by Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. They are the largest non-profit 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, non-profit organisation to complement federal efforts surrounding Alzheimer's disease. That meeting resulted in the 10 April 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.
