The Long Island Elite Donates $110k to United Cerebral Palsy of Long Island
Throughout 2022, the Long Island Elite has continued to focus its charitable efforts to make an impact locally on Long island. The networking and philanthropy group announced its most recent donation of $110,000 to its not-for-profit charity partner of the year, United Cerebral Palsy of Long Island (UCP of LI). With this donation, the Long Island Elite has now donated more than $1,100,000 to local Long Island not-for-profit organizations.
“It is amazing what a group of motivated individuals looking to make an impact on Long Island can do,” said Long Island Elite President Frank Morizio, Jr. “This year the Long Island Elite emerged with a new leadership team and a focus on engagement, activity, and community involvement. We forged a true partnership with a wonderful charity partner and the results were outstanding. These funds will greatly assist UCP of LI on its development of a new outdoor playground for its Children’s Center, as well as its mission to advance the independence, productivity, and full citizenship of people with disabilities. Congratulations to all who made this another record-setting year!”
