UHY LLP donates $48,500 to Center for Disability Services during annual fundraising event
ALBANY, NY – The Center for Disability Services and UHY LLP yesterday welcomed New York Yankees pitcher Luis Severino and New York Giants running back Paul Perkins to the 57th annual Center for Disability Services Telethon at the Radisson Hotel at 205 Wolf Road in Albany, NY.
The appearances of Perkins and Severino were presented by UHY LLP, a licensed independent CPA firm in New York, which donated $48,500 to the Center for Disability Services during the telethon. Both athletes signed autographs and met with fans throughout the afternoon in return for donations to support the Center for Disability Services.
“The Center for Disability Services was honored to welcome Paul and Luis as they helped us continue a tradition that has raised millions of dollars for thousands of children and adults with disabilities throughout the Capital Region,” said Anne Schneider Costigan, Center for Disability Services Deputy Executive Director-Foundation Division. “We thank the partners at UHY LLP for their continued support of this event and commitment to the mission of the Center for Disability Services.”
“UHY is a longtime partner of the Center for Disability Services and we were proud to once again be a part of this year’s telethon. We were thrilled to help bring these New York sports stars to the Capital Region in support of an outstanding cause,” said Howard Foote, UHY LLP Office Managing Partner, Capital Region. “It’s our honor to work with an organization that for decades has provided invaluable services to thousands of residents in the greater Capital Region.”
The 22-year-old Severino is projected to begin the season in the Yankees starting rotation after a strong 2016 campaign when he struck out 66 hitters in 71 innings of work, primarily out of the bullpen. Severino exploded onto the scene as a rookie for the Yankees in 2015 when he dominated as a starter with an ERA of 2.89.
Perkins carried the ball 112 times and rushed for 456 yards in his first season with the New York Giants. He helped propel the Giants to an 11-win season and Wild Card playoff matchup against the Green Bay Packers. He was selected by the Giants in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL draft.
