UHY LLP donates $50,000 to Center for Disability Services during annual fundraising event
ALBANY, NY (January 29, 2018) – The Center for Disability Services and UHY LLP hosted New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone and New York Giants tight end Evan Engram during the annual #518Gives fundraiser to benefit the Center for Disability Services at the Radisson Hotel, 205 Wolf Road in Albany, NY, on Sunday, January 28.
The appearance by members of the New York Yankees and New York Giants was made possible by UHY LLP, a licensed independent CPA firm in New York, which increased its donation this year to $50,000 for the Center for Disability Services.
“The Center for Disability Services was honored to welcome new Yankees manager Aaron Boone and rookie tight end Evan Engram to the Capital Region as they helped us continue a tradition that has raised millions of dollars for thousands of children and adults with disabilities,” said Anne Schneider Costigan, Center for Disability Services Deputy Executive Director, Foundation. “We thank the entire UHY LLP team for its continued support of this event and commitment to the mission of the Center for Disability Services.”
“As a longtime partner of the Center for Disability Services, we’re proud to increase our commitment to this outstanding organization. We are thrilled to help bring these sports stars to the Capital Region in support of a tremendous cause,” said Howard Foote, UHY LLP Office Managing Partner, Capital Region. “It’s our honor to work with an organization that continually provides invaluable services to thousands of families in the greater Capital Region.”
Boone and Engram signed autographs and met with fans throughout the afternoon in return for donations to support the Center for Disability Services which benefits local individuals with disabilities and their families.
Boone was named the new manager of the New York Yankees in early December but may be best known for hitting a series winning walk-off home run for the Yankees in the American League Championship Series in 2003. During his 12-year MLB career, he played for the Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Indians, Florida Marlins, Washington Nationals, Houston Astros and Yankees.
Engram was drafted by the Giants with the 23rd pick in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft and made his NFL debut in the season opener against the Dallas Cowboys. Born in Powder Springs, Georgia, Engram played college football for Ole Miss.
New York athletes have a long history of serving as the special guests during the annual telethon including previous appearances from Paul Perkins, Luis Severino, Jason Pierre-Paul, Didi Gregorius, Rashad Jennings, Joba Chamberlain, Martellus Bennett, Hakeem Nicks, Joe Girardi, Steve Smith, Jorge Posada and many others.
The Center for Disability Services has been the place to turn to for innovative services and expert care for individuals with disabilities and chronic medical conditions in the Capital Region for 75 years. It provides services to more than 12,000 individuals of all ages and their families at 80 locations throughout fifteen in Upstate New York.
