“We are pleased to announce that Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center of NY 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 & 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.”
