Century of Giving Philanthropy Contest Concludes for 2013
Long Islanders have voted for the final time in 2013, and have selected the Suffolk County Chapter of the AHRC as the winner of the Century of Giving contest, sponsored by Davidow, Davidow, Siegel & Stern.
“We are grateful to all Long Islanders who cast ballots online and endorsed these three deserving non-profit organizations,” declared Lawrence Davidow, Senior and Managing Partner of the firm.  AHRC Suffolk will be awarded $5,000 from the law firm.
“We are pleased to have been nominated for the Century of Giving initiative, and our recognition as a recipient is deeply gratifying,” announced Director of Development, J. Andreassi.  “The award will be used to continue to support individuals and families impacted by intellectual and other developmental disabilities.”
Mr. Davidow added that the other two Century of Giving nominees are essential to supporting Long Islanders with special needs and their families.  “The Long Island Advocacy Center and the Viscardi Center both serve thousands of families and individuals impacted by special needs,” stated Mr. Davidow.  “Their contribution to our community is outstanding, and we wish to recognize their support.
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 to recognize non-profits that mirror the firm’s mission: serving seniors and special needs populations.

The final phase coincided with the celebration of “Special Needs Law Month”, a recognition offered by the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, of which the law firm is a member.  The previous two phases of Century of Giving recognized organizations serving Long Island seniors, and awarded $5,000 to two of the non-profits that were selected by Long Islanders.
