Long Island Selects Winner In Second Phase of
"Century of Giving" Philanthropic Celebration

The votes are in, and Long Islanders have declared the Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center, Inc. to be the winner of the 2013 "Century of Giving" philanthropic contest.

“We are pleased to announce that Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center has received the most votes within our category of ‘Helping Seniors With Specific Health Conditions,’ and will be awarded $5,000 from the Law Firm of Davidow, Davidow, Siegel and Stern,” announced Managing Partner Lawrence Davidow.

“It is our pleasure to accept the Century of Giving recognition and the donation,” declared Mary Ann Malack-Ragona, Executive Director of the Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center. “We are honored to have been selected, and we look forward to using these funds to support additional Long Island families impacted by Alzheimer’s Disease.”

Davidow added that the other two Century of Giving nominees also have assisted Long Island seniors in significant ways. “The Arthritis Foundation of Long Island and The American Parkinson Disease Association’s Information & Resource Center on Long Island are each renowned for historic assistance provided to Long Island's elder populations with health concerns. We salute them for their inspiring efforts and encourage support of these worthy charities,” he noted.

The Century of Giving initiative was created by the Law Firm of Davidow, Davidow, Siegel and Stern to celebrate the law firm’s centennial on Long Island. The firm designed a philanthropic celebration that publicly recognizes non-profits that mirror the firm’s mission: serving seniors and special needs populations.

The promotion depends on the participation of voters to decide which organizations will be awarded $5,000 each. The competition will conclude with a new Phase III nomination of other local non-profits organizations. That round of nominees will be announced on September 4. Full details are provided on the Century of Giving website.

“We’re asking that Long Islanders reach out and vote in our next phases – in September – to offer deserving non-profits an opportunity to receive $5,000 from our firm,” noted Lawrence Davidow. “Simply log on and anonymously vote for a non-profit that may have made a difference in the life of someone you know. It only takes one vote to make a difference!”
