Ronkonkoma, NY – Child Abuse Prevention Services (CAPS), Long Island’s leading organization dedicated to preventing bullying and child abuse, will recognize Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, LLP, a premier law firm with offices in Ronkonkoma and Bridgehampton, with a Corporate Citizenship Award at the CAPS 32nd Annual Spring Luncheon. CAPS will honor the firm for its outstanding leadership and contributions to CAPS and the Long Island non-profit community. CAPS will also honor Emily Lindin, author, filmmaker, and founder of The UnSlut Project, with a Community Leadership Award, and Allyson Pereira, an anti-bullying and sexting advocate, with a Champion for Change Award at the luncheon, which will take place at the Carltun in Eisenhower Park at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, April 20, 2017.
Each year, CMM donates hundreds of thousands of dollars and hours to nonprofit organizations throughout Long Island and the metropolitan region. CAPS holds a special place in CMM’s history, however, as the very first organization the firm supported. Managing Partner Joe Campolo was CAPS’ first male board member, and Partner Patrick McCormick took the helm of the organization years later as President of the Board of Directors.
“CMM’s outstanding contribution to CAPS has helped make CAPS a leader in the field of bullying and child abuse prevention,” said Alane Fagin, CAPS Executive Director. “We are thrilled to present the CAPS Corporate Citizenship Award to Campolo, Middleton & McCormick for their leadership role in community service to the Long Island non-profit and business community.”
